Who We Are


SECOND CHANCE is an all volunteer, no-kill, tax-exempt, 501(C)(3), animal rescue organization located in the Western New York area.

We specialize in stray, orphaned, abandoned and abused companion animals (dogs and cats). Second Chance, being a partner in the Maddie's Pet Rescue Project of Erie County, regularly take cats from the SPCA Serving Erie County and The City of Buffalo Animal Shelter when they call us for assistance. 

Where does the pregnant mother go to have her babies? Where does the injured cat or dog go to recuperate? Where does the orphaned puppy or kitten go to be bottle fed and hand-raised? To Second Chance, of Course!

Second Chance Sheltering Network, Inc. is made up of a group of deeply dedicated animal lovers who foster the animals in their homes until they are ready for adoption into pre-screened, approved homes. There is no paid staff in our organization, we all serve out of love.  NO ANIMAL LEAVES OUR ORGANIZATION UNTIL IT IS SPAYED OR NEUTERED

Come Visit Us



  We Showcase Our Adoptable Animals at in Front of our Adoption Center in Jenn's Exocit Pets (formerly Honey Hill Pet Center) located inside Eastern Hills Mall.  Use entrance by JC Pennys
