We do what we can given the funds and supplies that we have, but the costs of vetting, shots, alteration and fostering are sizable, and treating a sick cat or dog will take any extra funds we have collected from adoption fees, so additional support for money and supplies is still needed.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
A Second Chance is a non-profit, and like all non-profit animal rescues, money is tight and the need is great. There are specific things you can help us with to make a difference for homeless animals.
#1 Donate money! The universally accepted gift will go towards the pressing needs of the day:
Donate through PayPal. You chose the amount, and if you want it to go towards something specific, feel free to edit the item description. A Second Chance is a 501(3)(c) group so your donation is tax deductible.
#2 Volunteer! We need help at our events. They are usually on Saturday and Sunday, usually three locations to choose from. Go to our Events page to find out where we'll be, and register on the website to get in our system and start receiving emails.
#3 Foster! We are an all-foster organization, meaning we do not have a shelter. Though we can put a limited number of cats or kittens at Petco, we only put the ones that are ready to go and its based on space. You can give a kitten a chance or provide a relief to an older cat that needs a few weeks off from life in a cage at Petco. Go to this page to find out more about what it takes to be a foster, and print out an app (or just show up at an event with your application). Fosters are always in demand, so if you want to foster, you can also call the information line and leave your information and someone will get a hold of you.
#4 Buy Stuff!
