About Us

Second Chance Animal Rescue (SCAR) is a 501(c)3 Charity whose mission is to rescue abandoned and abused animals and find them loving homes.

Second Chance Animal Rescue’s (SCAR) cats and dogs come from many painful situations: some once had homes, but for some reason their owners decide they no longer care and leave their pets in parks, behind supermarkets, or on the streets.

Having spent their lives as house pets, these cats and dogs are unable to fend for themselves. Other times, we must remove cats or dogs from a hoarder’s home. Suddenly an owner passes away, leaving their cat or dog with no one to care for it and nowhere for it to go.

Often, especially in the spring, we find a litter of stray kittens whose mother never returned to care for them.

Second Chance Animal Rescue receives no federal or state funding. We rely on our volunteers and the generosity of the public for food donations and monetary contributions. Find out more about how you can help.
