Mission

Second Chance Animal Sanctuaries began in 2001 as a grassroots effort to improve the lives of donestic dogs and cats, and to address high euthanasia rates at that time. Our mission is: - To provide humane, no-kill sanctuaries for the care and rehabilitation of abandoned and at-risk animals. - To provide compassionate, animal-friendly environments that respect the dignity and total needs of all animals under our care and protection. - To provide outreach programs and networks for animal adoptions, public respect and appreciation of animals, and awareness of animal needs as well as human responsibilities. Our vision is, through example, advocacy, and outreach, to make a real difference in not only the animals we help but in future treatment and respect for all life, great or small.
