Career Opportunities

You can change the lives of pets everyday

There is nothing better to do with your life than to save another.

If you believe that every pet deserves a ‘second chance,’ we invite you to explore a career at Second Chance Animal Services. We have a common goal at Second Chance: to help pets and the people who love them.



We provide a host of programs to save the lives of pets and make their lives better.  Whether you’re providing access to world-class veterinary care, helping homeless pets rebuild their lives, or engaging the community to end pet homelessness by keeping pets and their people together, you can take pride in knowing you are changing lives.

Our focus is keeping pets in their homes whenever possible by providing programs that provide access to affordable veterinary care.  When pets cannot stay in their homes or do not have one, we have an adoption center to attend to their needs and find them into new homes.

We believe in providing positions that help to foster a great work life balance, a sense of pride in the work we do, and a great feeling of helping pets every day!
