Mission Statement

Second Chance Kitten Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit rescue organization located in Concord, North Carolina. We are a group of volunteers devoted to finding permanent, loving homes for orphaned, surrendered or thrown away cats and kittens. Many of these animals are rescued from the fate of euthanization by animal control or from individuals who think nothing of abandoning them to fend for themselves.

We are committed to making a difference in the lives of these animals and in educating the public about pet overpopulation and the importance of spaying or neutering your pets. Before placement, our kittens/cats are combo blood tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV, bathed and treated for fleas, earmites, de-wormed and vaccinated for FVRCP (distemper) and rabies, if old enough.

Organization history - Second Chance Kitten Rescue, Inc. was originally known as Deese Cat Rescue until we became 501 (c) 3 non-profit and then we became known as Second Chance Kitten Rescue, Inc. We applied for our non-profit status on February 4, 2004 and were approved in January 2005. We started out very small and remain a small rescue helping kittens and cats in our area find permanent loving homes. We assist and place approximately 400 cats and kittens annually, mostly kittens.

Description

Second Chance Kitten Rescue is not only committed to saving these innocent animals, we are also dedicated to educating the general public about responsible pet ownership.

We hope to reduce the suffering, neglect and disease of the animals in Cabarrus County and surrounding counties by educating the public and helping people find affordable means of Spaying and Neutering their pets. We take in animals from any county, as we have space open - not just the ones in Cabarrus County. We want to stop adult cats from reproducing so we don't allow people to become dependant on us - we insist that the mother cat is spayed before we take their kittens. We must stop the baby machines in order to stop pet over-population. We assist the client with the adult animal's alteration and vaccinations if the client is agreeable. We have multiple feral cat projects annually where we trap feral cats and take the cats to our vet for altering and rabies vaccination in the hopes of reducing the number of kittens born out in fields, junk cars or abandoned buildings. One of our major goals is educating the public on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. We may not be making a huge difference, but we are making a difference to approximately 400 animals a year in North Carolina! Our volunteers work tirelessly making the quality of life for these animals better.
