cat Second Chance HILL science Diet

As a shelter partner, we are exclusively

feeding Hill’s® Science Diet® to all

the animals in our care.



Sources of funding continues to be a pressing issue for Second Chance. While larger donations by businesses and charitable foundations are always very much needed, these alone cannot support our total day to day expense. Costs for veterinary fees runs into many thousands of dollars annually. As well, there are ongoing expenditures such as food, bedding, medication and bills for the utilities required to run the Sanctuary.

While financial support is an absolute necessity, donations of supplies and giving your time as a volunteer are other valuable contributions. Below we have outlined ways you can help Second Chance, whether your gift be one of money, property or time.

Please also note that Second Chance is a registered charity, and that monetary donations are tax deductible.
