- About the Sanctuary
Where do our animals come from?
All the animals available for adoption through Second Chance are rescued from the Oklahoma Animal Shelters. Our goal is to eliminate the needless euthanasia of adoptable animals at Oklahoma Animal shelters, so all our rescued animals come directly from there.
Can I bring an animal to the sanctuary?
Second Chance Can Not Accept Animals From The Public At This Time
We understand the difficulties this may bring to someone needing to re-home or find a shelter for an animal. But If we were able to accept from the public, we would have in excess of 75 dogs and cats added to our population each week - based on tabulations from phone calls. We've listed some suggestions below to help you with a most difficult decision.
Here are some suggestions:
Go to the OKC Pups Facebook Page, post a picture and story.
If feasible, run an ad in your local paper with a picture.
Look at the following resources page:
For Dogs: http://www.dog.rescueshelter.com
For Cats: http://www.cat.rescueshelter.com
IF you do decide to post it on craigslist - charge a fee to help insure the pet is not used inappropriately.
Most importantly, if you can't keep it or find a home, take it to your local shelter.
How does spaying/neutering help animals?
You can help reduce the overpopulation of homeless pets by proactively spaying/neutering your pets - and encouraging your friends to do the same. Spaying/neutering is the key to reducing the 15,000-20,000 homeless dogs and cats who are euthanized in area shelters each year.
