Home Bound to the Rescue

This program is an add on to a Second Chance program called "Pet Food Pantry" that provides pet food to over 10 local food pantries plus Catholic Charities that distributes our pet food to several other food pantries. With this program, we have found that in addition to pet food, elderly need assistance with basic pet care during these tough economic times.

Many of the elderly cannot afford to provide basic medical care for their pets and/or don’t have the transportation available to get their pets to a veterinarian. This program assists pet owners by providing the services right at their doorstep. By going to elderly housing areas, we are able to help the elderly to keep their pets healthy and up to date on vaccines. This prevents the elderly from having to choose between their pet and putting food on their table.

Thanks to a grant from the Banfield Foundation we are able to offer this program to help pets and their loving owners! If you would like further information on this new program, please email us.


"I really wanted to thank you, your staff and 2nd Chance for providing the wonderful Home Bound to the Rescue program to our tenants here at Lincoln Village. Your staff was amazing and so very professional and kind. As they may have told you, many of the pets that were seen probably hadn’t seen a vet in a long time because of the cost and lack of transportation. Again thanks to all. You are truly appreciated."
