Who We Are

The phrase "Second Chance" about says it all. Our adoptable animals come to us from our local animal shelter, Alachua County Animal Services, and each of them were slated to be euthanized for one reason or another. We reserve space in our program for animals that are from our county shelter and would not have a chance for adoption if we did take them in so we are not able to take in pets from the public at this time. We have VERY limited space and unfortunately, there are enough "owner-less" critters out there to keep us quite busy!

Most of the animals that come to us are healthy and happy from the start ... but some require medical and/or surgical attention before they are healthy enough to go up for adoption. All of our animals reside in volunteer foster homes so we are able to learn a lot about their individual personalities, likes and dislikes and are able to make a great match with potential adopters..

We hold adoption events at Earth Pets Natural Market off of Newberry Rd most Saturday's from 12:30-3:30 pm and we invite potential adopters to stop by to meet and interact with our adoptable animals. Our adoption fee is $200 for dogs and puppies and includes them being spayed or neutered, up to date with age appropriate vaccinations, current with heartworm and flea prevention, microchipped and a courtesy veterinarian exam.

We also strive to promote responsible pet ownership through education and example. Anyone interested in adopting a new pet from Second Chance will be asked to complete an application. This allows us to better ensure that the animal of interest is exactly what you're looking for ... and vice versa. There are no "right or wrong" answers ... our goal is solely to ensure that everyone ends up happy. We thank you in advance for your time.
