We focus our efforts on treatable conditions and pets that are very adoptable when healthy. Yes, there are some automatic exclusions. You can learn more about this by reading our Application for Admission.
Yes. The fees are nominal compared to the resources invested in the care and treatment of the animals. Adoption fees are $200 for dogs and $100 for a cat. The surrender fee in the event of an owner surrender is $100.
We do not issue funding or grants to other organizations. Our organization is designed to provide all necessary care for the animal. This includes housing, daily care, medical treatments, and placement into a forever home which requires the animal to be surrendered.
Yes. If you feel that the pet you have adopted is not a good fit for your home, you have two weeks from the adoption date to return the pet to the Second Chance Fund.
No. The Second Chance Fund was designed to provide an alternative to euthanasia and is not organized to provide financial support to pet owners. It would not be fiscally responsible for us to return a pet to the same situation once we have invested time and resources to provide a Second Chance. We commit to finding the pet a wonderful home where it will be well cared for, but unfortunately cannot return it to the original situation.
