Who We Are

2nd Chance Animal Sanctuary is a 65 acre sanctuary for animals of all species. It is the life long dream of its founders and was fashioned after the Best Friend's Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah. At 2nd Chance Animal Sanctuary, we believe we CAN make a difference in the lives of hundreds of homeless, abused and neglected animals - One animal at a time. Our policy is a true "no kill", no euthanization. The animals we host at 2nd Chance Animal Sanctuary are free to stay as long as they need to, until you provide their "forever home". We provide animals the best in care until you come to adopt them! Our facility offers:
1) A Safe Environment for all pets
2) Spaying, Neutering, and all needed surgeries
3) Food and housing
4) A Large Variety of dogs, cats, even a pygmy goat and a donkey!

Whatever you're looking for, we provide pets to suit your needs. You can rest assured that the pets have had all their shots and needed medical attention, and that your new furry friend will be a perfect match for you and your family! Take a look at our ADOPT page, and you will see pets available for adoption today. Then give us a call at 205-590-4853, and come meet your new friend! 2nd Chance Animal Sanctuary is a Non-Profit 501(c) 3 Corporation and all donations are tax deductible!

Adopting a friend

Upon completion and review of an adoption application a visit may be scheduled. Our adoption fees of $150.00 includes vaccinations and spaying or neutering of all pets. Our adoption fee is a non-refundable donation to the sanctuary but we will always take back any of our animals should an adoption not work out for any reason.. We do reserve the right to decline any application that we feel is truly not in the best interest of the animal.

In the News

We have been "spotlighted" on Critter Haven's website. Take the tour at the Critter Haven website We also were spotlighted in the Birmingham Newspaper this past June. We would like to thank everyone who has emailed, written and given donations. The animals are more secure because you cared enough to help!!!!! Thanks from the whole tail-wagging gang!!!! We are in the process of building this website so not all of our animals are shown here yet. If you are looking for anything in particular please feel free to contact us.
