Second Chance received more emergency calls for help than in any other year.
Four Community Veterinary Hospitals provided care for pets with nowhere else to turn.
We are now the largest low-cost spay & neuter services provider in Central & Western Massachusetts.
Our shelter welcomed homeless pets in our community and through our nationally recognized animal relocation program…and found them new homes.
We helped struggling pet owners to feed their pets by distributing pet food to 23 human food pantries.
We helped keep pets in their homes and comforted displaced pets through community outreach programs.
Goal for 2022: Help 45,000 Pets
The past two years have been hard on everyone, including pets. While your newsfeed may have been filled with the playful escapades of quarantine puppies or kittens welcomed into families, a serious health situation was brewing for pets. Day after day, more and more pets began to fall behind on basic vaccines and routine care as Covid made it challenging for pets to be seen by their veterinarian. Second Chance Animal Services is rolling out plans to help a record breaking 45,000 pets this year to help get pets up to date.
