About Second Chance Rescue
Second Chance is a 100% not for profit that relies solely on donations from the public. Dogs and cats are rescued from the streets, as well as from “death row” at municipal shelters (predominantly NYC Animal Care & Control) around New York City. Prior to their rescue by Second Chance, most of our animals had been abandoned, abused or neglected, and a large number have serious medical issues that require immediate, emergency veterinary care. Second chance protects and ensures the long-term well-being of these rescued animals by placing them in foster homes or private boarding facilities, where they are rehabilitated and cared for until a permanent home can be found.
