At Second Chance our priority is finding the best match for each animal. Like people, animals are individuals and have different needs for a successful adoption, according to their personalities. Acting in partnership with many animal controls across the state; Second Chance acts as an extension of local shelters, providing the extra time and resources needed in re-homing animals, therefore reducing the need for euthanasia. Second Chance rarely takes owner releases. Instead we prefer to use our resources for the animals in danger of being "put to sleep"at open admission shelters/Animal Controls.
Second Chance cannot accept stray or abandoned animals!!
If you have found an animal, please call your local animal control shelter! If a pet has gotten lost or strayed , animal control is the best chance the pet has of finding it's owner. It is not uncommon for pets who are lost to rapidly lose weight and act scared. Don't assume the pet has no home or was abused. Animal Control makes every attempt to get reunite pets with owners, and adopt out pets, they do not immediatly euthanize!
Sam (Kathy Sedgwick/Steve Salmon)
Sam was adopted from the Salt Lake Animal Shelter on Nov. 22, 2000. He was found in a field and thought to be somewhere between 2-3years old. He was not in very good shape at the time but recovered in his new home where he was adored by his "parents" and where he lived the rest of this life. He was a smart, lovable, beautiful boy and a wonderful companion who loved to play. When he was finally able to go out in the yard on supervised outings we discovered he even liked snow days. He suffered from diabetes his last 4 years but handled all of his treatments very well. In 2011 Sam acquired a "little sister", Lily, a kitten adopted from Second Chance for Homeless Pets
. Sam was very tolerant of the active youngster and would bathe her and, when necessary, occasionally whoop her. They would accompany each other to vet appointments. Sam passed away gently February 24th in the arms of his 2 loving owners. We can't thank Dr. Brown and Dr. Bienapfl enough for their kindness to us and especially to Sam.
