Great organization, employees and family of volunteers.

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.
