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

Second Chance dogs 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 wonderful dogs, 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. While most times it only takes a few days, during busy times it make take as long as a week to process the application. Also, we do occasionally get multiple applications on the same dog. When this happens, we do schedule "meet and greets" with the applicants to ensure the best possible match. Our love and dedication is to find the best possible home for our dogs. It's not just about placing the dog as quickly as possible but ensuring that the dog, and the new loving family, have a lifelong happy match. So, please be patient in this process and 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 dog, 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.
