Mission StatementMORE »

Founded in 2001, Second Chance Pet Adoptions is a non-profit 501(c)(3) No-Kill animal rescue dedicated to the memory of all animals who were caged, hunted, beaten, tortured, starved, chained, exploited, or simply ignored.  Our mission is to find a permanent, loving home for each cat and kitten, and to reduce the overpopulation of cats in the community, through an aggressive trap-neuter-release program.  Second Chance Pet Adoptions educates the public as to the proper care and needs of their pets, provides information on existing animal cruelty and abandonment laws, and informs the public of the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. We also provide a service to the community by providing pet adoptions designed to benefit both the animal and the adopting party. We ensure the animals under our protection are taken care of in the best way possible.  Our adoption process includes a veterinary health check for the animal and screening of the prospective owner, to help ensure that the pet and its new owner will be compatible. If for any reason they are not compatible, we take back the pet, who will again be offered for adoption.

Mission Statement

Founded in 2001, Second Chance Pet Adoptions is a non-profit 501(c)(3) No-Kill animal rescue dedicated to the memory of all animals who were caged, hunted, beaten, tortured, starved, chained, exploited, or simply ignored.  Our mission is to find a permanent, loving home for each cat and kitten, and to reduce the overpopulation of cats in the community, through an aggressive trap-neuter-release program.  Second Chance Pet Adoptions educates the public as to the proper care and needs of their pets, provides information on existing animal cruelty and abandonment laws, and informs the public of the importance of spaying and neutering their pets.

Background Statement

Second Chance began over 15 years ago when a few "crazy cat ladies" noticed stray cats in their neighborhood needing medical care and other basic necessities of food and shelter.  These kind-hearted ladies starting caring for these homeless cats and networking through friends and co-workers to find them new homes.  Through their grassroots effort, Second Chance grew into one of Orange Counties most respected animal rescue and was honored by Disneyland for the help they provide in the Orange County communities.  Second Chance has remained a 100% volunteer based organization thriving on its volunteers passion and love for animals.  Second Chance is also known for not shying away from hard situations.  We have seen almost every illness and injury imaginable with cats and have always done our best to provide whatever care was needed to ensure the cat's recovery.   We truly believe that everyone deserves a second chance.

Impact Statement

In 2015 Second Chance Pet Adoptions was responsible for finding homes for almost 200 cats and kittens throughout Orange County.  Through our Trap-Neuter-Return program we were also able to spay or neuter at least 100 more stray cats, preventing the birth of thousands more.  Our goals for the current year are to not only find homes for the cats in our care, but to continue to provide spay/neuter services and medical care for the stray cats we are contacted about by people all over Orange County on a daily basis.

Needs Statement

Second Chance is always in need of new volunteers to assist with the care of our adoptable cats, as well as foster homes for kittens who are too young to be adopted and cats who are recovering from injuries or illnesses.   Second Chance receives no government assistance, so we are also always in need of financial donations to cover our annual operating costs for food, medical care and supplies which is $35,000.

Programs


Cat & Kitten Adoptions

Adoptions - Cats & Kittens - Our goal is to find a permanent, loving home for each cat and kitten in our care.  We provide a pet adoption service designed to benefit both the animal and the adopting party.  Our adoption process includes a veterinary health check for the animal and screening of the prospective owner, to help ensure that the pet and its new owner will be compatible. If for any reason they are not compatible, we take back the pet, who will again be offered for adoption.  We ensure the animals under our protection are taken care of in the best way possible.  Each cat or kitten is spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, felv - fiv tested, vaccinated, de-wormed, and flea treated prior to being adopted.  Every cat or kitten also goes to their new home with a collar and ID tag, toys and a bag of food.
Budget  $65,000.00
Category  Animal-Related Animal Ownership
Population Served General Public/Unspecified
Program Short-Term Success  Each year Second Chance Pet Adoptions tries to find homes for as many cats and kittens possible.  We are 100% no-kill and keep our animals until they find homes.  Most are adopted within 6 months of being in our adoption program.  On occasion,  it  does take longer to find some cats, through no  fault of their own,  a home.
Program Long-Term Success  Since it's beginnings in 2001, Second Chance Pet Adoptions has successfully adopted approximately 2500 cats and kittens into loving homes.
Program Success Monitored By  Adoption Coordinators and Board Members
Examples of Program Success  Rosie Red was found wandering the streets of Santa Ana.  This beautiful and sweet Persian cat was declawed, leaving her with no way to defend herself or escape to safety.  As a result, she was brutally injured by someone who swung her around by her foot causing her leg to be completely detached at the hip and her knee to be twisted around backwards.  The person who found Rosey was unable to pay for her needed medical care, so she was brought to Second Chance.  Rosey was immediately taken to our veterinarian, where due to the severity of her injuries, amputation was recommended.  Surgery was scheduled for the next day and Rosey’s leg was amputated without complication.  She spent two weeks in a foster home re- covering and by the end of her recovery, Rosey was running around on her three legs without a care.  Rosey remained sweet and affectionate throughout her whole ordeal and was adopted by a kind-hearted person in Los Angeles. Smudge & Squeak were rescued from a kill-shelter in April 2007 just after Squeak gave birth to 5 kittens.  Second Chance was able to find homes for four of the kittens when they were 12 weeks old, but unfortunately, no one wanted to adopt Smudge or his mama, Squeak, even though they were sweet and loving kitties.  Squeak & Smudge lived at PetSmart where they became more and more attached and would cuddle and “talk” to each other, but were over-looked for more colorful or smaller cats.  In December 2008, Squeak & Smudge were the “Pet of the Week” in the Register, but again, no one wanted to adopt them.  Fortunately, Squeak & Smudge were able to be Pet of the Week again in February 2009 and this time, a wonderful couple in Mission Viejo saw their story in the newspaper and adopted them. Squeak & Smudge are happily being spoiled in their new home.

Trap-Neuter-Return

Trap-Neuter-Return is the only humane way to decrease the stray cat population.  This keeps new cats from coming into the area, greatly reduces fighting and spraying behavior, improves the overall health of the cats and directly reduces the number of cats being killed at animal control shelters.  Second Chance receives calls and emails everyday from people needing assistance with stray cats.  Our TNR volunteers will bring traps to the location, set the traps, and then return later to take the trapped cat to the vet where it will be spayed or neutered, ear-tipped and given an overall health check.  If the cat is injured or ill, Second Chance will pay for treatment to get the cat healthy so it can be returned to its outdoor home. 
Budget  $10,000.00
Category  Animal-Related, General/Other Animal Protection & Welfare
Population Served Adults Elderly and/or Disabled Hispanic, Latino Heritage
Program Short-Term Success  With active Trap-Neuter-Return the stray cat population will continue to decrease each year.
Program Long-Term Success  Trap-Neuter-Return decreases the stray cat population on an ongoing basis and has been shown to decrease shelter euthanasia rates by as much as 50% when done on a large scale.
Program Success Monitored By  Second Chance is able to monitor the success of its Trap-Neuter-Return locations by whether or not more or new kittens are born each year or if the location population remains the same.
