I got my 'baby' from them and couldn't be happier. The did a complete screening of me to make sure the dog and I were compatible and that the dog would have a good home. (She's spoiled rotten). These folks are doing very special work and give the animals wonderful care and love. Nearly everyone there VOLUNTEERS their time and pay out of pocket for things the 'kids' might need (special treats, etc.). I would never get a dog from a breeder. I would go to a rescue organization and ...view morethis is my first choice.view less
I have a mother cat and four kittens. It breaks my heart that I cannot find them a home, but I have been told that my time is up, and I have to get rid of them. I called Second Chance for help. When I was asked if I found them or if they were mine, I told them they were mine. The mood changed immediately. I was asked how old the kittens were,and I said 6 to 8 weeks. I told her they were eating on their own. She then rudely said, if they were born in your home, you know how old t...view morehey are. I said, well you might think so, but I do not know for sure. They are between 6 to 8 weeks. She then said, we will not be able to take them.
I cannot help but wonder why all the questions were necessary if they could not take them. It seems that she simply didn't like that I owned the cat and was in a situation to have to get rid of them.
I will try other shelters, but if they all are as rude and unhelpful as Second Chance, then this mommy and her babies will have no where to go. I am not certain what this shelter is actually for -- I guess situations of their approving, not help for cats/kittens with no where to go.view less
As a volunteer at the shelter I have seen first hand how well they treat these homeless animals that have been rescued from other shelters because they have run out of time. They have remained a small organization so they can tend to each and every animal as if they were their own. I am very impressed with time and thought process put into the adoption interviews to insure a good match.
Everyone at the shelter is compassionate and helpful. They are doing the very best they can to service the community but when all is said and done, they are for the animals. The average cost for care of an animal for the year is close to $1,300. That is with normal food and meds for the year. Given the unconditional love they give it is a bargain!
When you adopt an animal you are taking responsibility for a possible 15 year companionship. With all that it entails.
i adopted a cute dog from them. i was assured she was in good health. when i took her to the vet, she had heartworms. i contacted them to see if they would pay/help me pay for her treatment ($400). they said &amp;quot;we had a board meeting and came to the conclusion that we are not obligated to help you&amp;quot;. i asked if they could ask their vet to give me a price break - again &amp;quot;we are not comfortable doing that&amp;quot;. get off you...view morer behind and help me! i would NEVER recommend these people for anything much less give them an mouse to adopt out. meanwhile, i am left with a dog that is sick and stuck with the bill! I THINK THEY STINK!view less
