Second Chance Animal Shelter has been helping animals since 1999. We are a no-kill, non-profit charitable 501c3 organization. The Shelter helps over 16,000 pets each year through adoption, spay/neuter, wellness clinics, subsidized veterinary care, training, educational outreach, and the pet food pantry. The shelter has now become one of the largest no-kill animal shelters in Central and Western MA. The shelter's focus is on keeping more pets out of shelters through programs that help keep pets in their homes whenever possible, keeps them healthier, and improves the human/animal bond.

Help Second Chance help animals in need by participating in Second Chance's Animal Weekend.
