Second Chance Animal Services has been named a “2017 Top-Rated Nonprofit” by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews of charities and nonprofits.

Second Chance is a nationally recognized organization that provides innovative programs and services to help animals.  They help over 26,000 pets a year through adoption, low cost spay/neuter, subsidized veterinary care, community outreach, educational programs, training, a pet food pantry, and other services.

“We are honored to be named a 2017 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” says Sheryl Blancato, Executive Director.  “We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including the opening of our new community veterinary clinic in Worcester and the 120 pets we took in from shelters affected by the recent hurricanes. “

The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is the based on the rating and number of reviews that Second Chance received from volunteers, donors and aid recipients. “On a -14 degree February day, local animal control picked up a skinny, mostly furless, not neutered, Lyme positive, Rottweiler with infected skin and several tumors. Second Chance took him in. A week later I fostered him. They supplied multiple medications, supplies, ongoing medical care, and surgery to neuter and remove the tumors. With my love, medicated baths 4 times a week, and Second Chances' expertise and support, within a few months "Carl," now Gideon was covered in the sleekest black fur and ready to go to his forever home—with me! He is the light of my life,” read one review recently posted.

Second Chance is a great example of a nonprofit making a real difference in their community,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “Their award is well-deserved recognition not only of their work, but the tremendous support they receive, as shown by the many outstanding reviews they have received from people who have direct experience working with Second Chance.”

GreatNonprofits is the leading website where people share stories about their personal experiences on more than 1.2 million charities and nonprofits. The GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Awards are the only awards for nonprofits determined by those who have direct experience with the charities – as donors, volunteers and recipients of aid.
