A little about us:
Second Chance Rescue was formed in 2009 on the firm belief that all animals deserve to be loved and cared for, and no animal should ever be abused, neglected or homeless. Our mission is to save animals that otherwise would have no chance and to facilitate the adoption/rehoming of these animals that have been abandoned, or given up by their former owners, and to place them in new loving homes.
We are 100% not for profit and to date have relied solely on donations from the public. We rescue dogs and cats from the streets, as well as from “death row” at municipal shelters (predominantly NYC Animal Care & Control) around New York City. Before coming to us, most of the animals that we rescue have been abandoned or abused/neglected; a large number have serious medical issues and require immediate, emergency veterinary care. We protect and ensure the long-term well-being of these rescued animals by placing them in foster homes or private boarding facilities, where they are rehabilitated and cared for until a permanent home can be found.
We are very passionate about our work; loving and caring for these animals unconditionally. All animals are transported to private veterinarians for proper medical treatment prior to adoption. All of our rescued animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm tested before they are placed into new loving homes.
Additionally, we work to generate awareness in the community about the prevention of animal abuse and neglect, as well as adoption of homeless animals and the importance of spay/neuter acting as a liaison .
We hope that through our work and commitments we shed light on and bring attention to the dire situation our companion animals are in in this country. We know with dedication and care and the help of all our loyal and faithful supporters there is hope for these animals.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY xoxo
