Before you adopt...take a moment to think over these questions.

Second Chance cats are currently residing in our East Brookfield shelter or in foster homes in South Central Massachusetts. For information on our policies and fees, visit the policies page. If you are interested in adopting one of our lovely cats, please submit an adoption application.

Please note that our adoption process is run mostly by our very hard working dedicated volunteers. All adoption applications are processed as quickly as possible. We have this process to ensure that our cats get the best possible home and that we can help you to find your new feline companion. Our love and dedication is to ensure that the cat, and the new loving family, have a lifelong happy match. We are always full to capacity with cats so if we do get multiple applications on a single cat and the cat your interested in gets adopted by someone ahead of you, there are many more needy cats always coming through our doors. We encourage you to submit an application as soon as possible, even if you don't see what you are looking for on our web site, because cats come in daily and your new best friend may walk through the door tomorrow. We hope that you understand how unique and wonderful this process is in doing our very best for our shelter cats. Please feel free to contact us with any questions. We want you to have a wonderful new best friend and we will spend the time with the cat, and you to ensure this happy match. Please see our Happy Endings section to see how this wonderful process has made so many lifelong happy endings.

Pictures of our adoptable animals can also be viewed at Sturbridge Veterinary Hospital in Sturbridge, Southbridge Vet in Southbridge, and the Sturbridge and Ware Wal-Marts as part of the Very Best Pet Network program.
Kittens are born year round.

Those at at Second Chance will find loving homes, but many others will not because there are just too many.

Second Chance offers low cost spay/neuter programs. Help stop the cycle! Please spay or neuter your cats!
