In August of 2013 we moved into our very own adoption center! Rent is $1200 a month plus utilities, so we are asking our donors to sign up for a monthly donation to help with this. Every little bit helps!

Helen | 13 Years old

Helen is one of our most special babies. She was originally dumped at the public animal shelter with her litter of kittens. One by one they were all adopted, leaving Helen by herself. You see, no one wanted to adopt a cat that was born without eyes! But blindness doesn't stop Helen. This tiny five-pound cat is the queen of her foster home, and even the dogs know to give her a wide berth. She is sweet, lovable, and ornery, and we just adore her!

Cuteness overload!

We have a whole boat load of kittens that need good homes. Come and meet them! Ages range from 8 weeks old to one year (and their moms need loving homes, too!).



What is "special-needs"?

Aren't all cats special?

While we agree that all cats have a "special" place in our hearts, some of the cats we rescue need extra rehabiliation, and some of them may never be adoptable and will remain at our sanctuary. These may include blind cats, deaf cats, amputees, cats with neurological deficits, and cats with extreme emotional trauma. We give these cats special care for the length of their lives, and your monthly sponsorship helps pay for that care!

The local businesses on the right are major financial supporters of Second Chance. We are so grateful for their support!
