Has your adopted pet brighten your life?

Since 2013, more than 20,000 adopters have shared the big and small ways their pets have changed their lives for the better with Petco Love. These Love Stories have earned the animal welfare organizations across the country that work hard year-round to make these adoption matches possible more than $7 million in lifesaving grant awards. Now you have a chance to help us win a grant award.


Petco Love is looking for a diverse range of stories, from those that celebrate the simple ways that pets bring more joy to everyday life, to one-of-a-kind, extraordinary stories. They want all adopters to be able to see themselves in these stories, and animal lovers of all backgrounds to be inspired by the life-changing power of adoption.


Please help Second Chance Pets win up to $100,000 in lifesaving grant awards, by submitting your own Love Story of an animal you adopted from us! This submission form will close October 15, 2022, so please get your story in! A member from our team may contact you if more information is required to submit your story to Petco Love.

Wanted! Dog Foster Homes

We are running low on dog fosters and without loving foster homes we at Second Chance Pets would not be able to function. We are an entirely foster based rescue with no shelter location so our ability to rescue sick, injured, or unwanted animals often depends solely on if we have a family willing to care for the animal until it is adopted.

Fostering with Second Chance Pets often involves you providing food, water, socialization, love, transportation to/from adoption events, and transportation to/from vet appointments for the animal you are fostering. Second Chance Pets covers medical costs for the rescue animal and will provide a kennel for the dog if needed.

Fostering is an activity that can bring joy to any family that provides a temporary loving home for a rescued pet. To help you decide, we have compiled some frequently asked questions which can be seen in our Foster Brochure. Click here to view
