Animal Admission

Do you know of an animal that is in need of a second chance? We might be able to help.


The Second Chance Fund is a tax exempt, non profit organization under Section 501 (c)(3). It provides veterinary care to companion animals admitted to the program including animals from humane societies, strays, breed rescue groups, or extreme hardship cases. The animals are restored to health and adopted to a qualified home. 


Applications for admission are reviewed by the board members, and all admitted animals are evaluated for estimated care costs. 


All animals must be adoptable once healed. The following are automatic exclusions: 


  • Animals with a history or biting or agression
  • Feline Leukemia or FIV positive cats
  • FUS or inappropriate urination in casts (unless surgically correctable) 
  • Human Health Risk: MRSA, MRSI, Leptospirosis, Rabies, etc. 
  • Horses or exotic animals that may require specific facilities or foster care
