Pet Food Pantry
The Food for Pets Pantry was established to help people in need feed their pets so that they don’t have to surrender them. Donations can be brought to the shelter or you may use PayPal to make a monetary donation.
Educational Outreach Program
Second Chance’s Educational Outreach Program provides education for people of all ages to promote animal care, animal responsibility, animal safety, and bite prevention. The Program focuses on achieving our vision of becoming “a model shelter, addressing the issue of pet over-population by providing solutions through services and prevention through education.”
Project Good Dog
We are currently partnered up with two correctional facilities: Hampden County Sheriff’s Office, and Worcester County Sheriff’s Office to help pets that need training and/or additional assistance prior to adoption!
K9 Salute Program
At Second Chance, we salute the hard-working police K9s of Massachusetts that help to keep us safe, search for lost persons, protect us by finding explosives, provide comfort and so much more. We want to do our part by keeping them healthy.
Second Chance is embarking on a mission – Operation HOPE (Help Operation Puerto Rico Endure).
This was the first program to begin to help to reduce the overpopulation of free roaming cats in the City and help the population to be healthier.
