Featured Dog


Meet Saphira, a 1 year old hound mix who absolutely loves anything that moves. She is great with other dogs, cats and kids and is a huge fan of snuggle time. She is great at entertaining herself with all kinds of toys and just try not to sit on her as she will definitely beat you to your seat! We had rescued her from the Pauls Valley Animal Shelter where she was found as a stray. She has been with us since May 2017 and will be here waiting for her forever home. Come and adopt this precious, golden eye beauty today and she will make you a great companion!


Featured Cat
 
 

Squeak, squeak, meow. That was me saying, "Howdy. How y'all doin?"  I'm a one year old American shorthair. I seem to be a little on the small size, but I do have energy to burn...when I want too.  My favorite times of day: feeding time...duh and the sunny times. I like to lay out on our enclosed patio and soak up the sun. I get along with other cats. I leave them alone and they leave me alone. I don't mind being held, but not for extended periods. Come on down and see me. Be sure to check the patio if you don't see me right away.

Download the Adoption SurveyIf you are interested in adopting a pet from Second Chance please download the Adoption Survey and return it to us via mail, fax, or email and someone will get back with you as soon as possible.

People with companion animals live longer and recover from illness faster than people who have none. Children with pets learn empathy and responsibility earlier than other children. Research suggests that those children handle family tragedy, such as divorce, better and may also have fewer problems with allergies.

What is the Adoption Process?

Our goal is to help you provide a great home for any of our available animals. If you are interested in adopting a dog or a cat, you can speak with one of our Adoption Specialists who will help you find an animal that fits you or your family. Once you select the pet you’d like to adopt, we will have you fill out a short questionnaire. After going over the adoption paperwork, if your survey/questionnaire is accepted, you fill out a adoption contract/agreement, pay the adoption fee and take the animal home with you that same day (most of the time).

* If you have other dogs in the house we do ask that you bring them up for a meet and greet to ensure the dogs get along.
* Apartment & Renting - must be approved also by the landlord, etc..

The goal is not to just adopt pets, it is to keep them adopted.


What is the right pet for me?

When choosing a dog, remember that good looks aren't everything. Long, happy relationships are the result of good compatibility. Our Adoption Specialists can help.

Consider Breed Tendency Regarding:

Compatibility Factors: Size, Coat Type, Activity Level, Excitability, Trainability, Sociability, Playfulness, Affection Demands, Barking, Aggressiveness.

Coat Type: Double-coat breeds (Shepherds, Huskys, Pomeranians, Akitas, St. Bernards) and short-coat breeds (Dobermans, Labradors, Dalmatians, Beagles) continuously shed, aggravating allergies, requiring brushing and home clean-up. Drop-coat breeds (Lhasa Apso, Maltese and Afghan, Terriers, Schnauzers and Poodles) are usually non-shedding but require weekly grooming time and/or expense.

Personality Factors: High barking levels for an indoor dog may be annoying but makes for a good watchdog. A playful or active dog may play a great game of catch but may also require regular, vigorous exercise to deter excessive barking, destructive chewing or unruly behavior. A highly trainable dog may house train quickly but may also get into mischief if not continually given training challenges. Aggression may contribute to watchdog temperament but can be a liability around children or strangers. Affectionate breeds are endearing but may bark or destroy more from separation anxiety. Every personality benefits from a puppy socialization class and/or dog obedience classes.


What is the adoption fee?

Our adoption fees, effective October 1, 2017 are:
  • $140 for all cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies over 6 months old
  • $170 for all puppies under 6 months old
The increasing cost of vet care especially for young puppies is the reason for this change. We do provide the very best vet care for all our animals but that care comes at a high cost especially if we have to treat injuries or illness. Parvo treatment in young puppies is extremely expensive. 

What does the adoption fee include?

  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Vet Checked
  • Micro-chipped
  • Age appropriate vaccines
  • Dogs over 6 months are tested for heartworm and tick disease
  • All animals are on flea/tick/heartworm preventative
  • Cats are tested for FIV/FeLV
