Second Chance Pets is a foster-based rescue organization - we do not have a shelter or employ any paid staff. Instead, we rely on a network of caring volunteers for all facets of our animal rescue and adoption activities. There are volunteer opportunities abound and you will get great joy and satisfaction in knowing that you played a key role in helping SCP place our adoptable animals into loving, forever homes! Here are some great ways you can help:
