Second Chance's mission is to champion homeless cats and dogs who are healthy or treatable in the quest to find their forever home and engage the community in responsible pet ownership - ultimately reducing future generations of homeless animals.
Non-profit organization, run almost completely by volunteers, dedicated to helping stray and abandoned cats and dogs. Provides all medical and shelter care. The Triangle area's oldest no-kill animal rescue organization, no animal is ever put to sleep to make room for other animals.
by Kathryn G. from Belmont, NC
This no-kill animal rescue organization is one of the best I have volunteered for. All the members I have met have a healthy passion for animal welfare. They succeed at making their establishment the most comfortable and enriching place it can be for the homeless cats and dogs they take in. I have never felt so appreciated as a volunteer with the "volunteer appreciation" event and holiday cards with little tokens of appreciation like candy or photographs. Love it!
I have been a foster home since 4/08 with Second Chance. And have since been the coordinator for Cary Petsmart adoptathons for our group, (had to step down due to personal reasons.) I am also an adoption counselor. All of the volunteers are great to work with. It's very rewarding, as there are always happy stories. They/we are always in need of new volunteers, as some have to cut back on their time spent with us, due to the economy, and some starting families, etc.
