Dedicated to finding 

every adoptable animal

a loving home...

2021 Holiday Season

Phoenix is a 2-year and 9-month old Labrador Retriever mix who arrived at the shelter in February.  This great guy is very high energy and needs exercise and training, but is also affectionate and submissive. He loves hugs and belly rubs. His best life would be in a strong adult home with no children or cats.

It's the Giving Season!

We are celebrating the "Giving Season" and hope you will join us!  Here are just a few ways you can give to shelter pets just like Phoenix from now until December 31st:

  • Give an animal a permanent home by adopting
  • Give our most vulnerable shelter animals a temporary home by fostering 
  • Give your time to help shelter animals by volunteering at 2nd Chance Thrift Shop
  • Give $ by shopping through AmazonSmile
  • Give your love by spreading the word on social media
  • Give by participating in one or more upcoming events, such as Holiday Pet Portraits or Holiday Boutiques (see below and get the 2021 Holiday Season Flyer)
  • Give by making a donation on Giving Tuesday to benefit shelter pets
  • Give meaningful gifts to your animal-loving family and friends (see below)
