Adopting a friend

Second Chance Cat Rescue is run by volunteers and is supported by donations. All donations are tax deductible and all moneys received are used for veterinary care, food and advertising for the adoptions of the cats. Volunteers foster the cats while they await new homes. This allows for an evaluation of the cats social behavior and health. Volunteers then match prospective adopters with cats that will fit in well in their homes. Second Chance Cat resuce screens all potential adopters carefully.

Adoption Process

All cats and kittens available for adoption have age appropriate shots and are leukemia and FIV negative. All adults have been spayed or neutered. Kittens must be spayed or neutered by the adopter by six months of age. Second Chance Cat Resuce screens all potential adopters carefully. To adopt a cat a potential adopter must complete an adoption application, undergo a pre-adoption home visit, and sign an adoption contract. A $125. adoption fee donation is required. If you are interested in getting more information on or in adopting one of the cats you see online. Please send an e-mail to and we would be happy to send an adoption application or answer your questions.
