Be a part of PAWS FOR THE CAUSE!
We are at it again! Working to do more for animals. “The Paws for the Cause” expansion! More pets than ever need our help and we want to provide it.

Second Chance Animal Shelter is on a bigger mission - Saving more pets by helping to keep them in their homes and making pet overpopulation a thing of the past. Our goal – a safe, loving, and happy home for every pet. Only 1 out of 10 pets that enter a shelter, finds a home? We want to change that. How? By creating a community education room in our Wellness Center to comfortably hold training classes, educational programs, and so much more to help animals. We also need to add a second surgical suite to keep up with the growing demand for services to fix more pets. In 2011, the Wellness Center is helping over 5,000 pets a year with spay/neuter services. A second surgical area will allow us to increase that number. Third, Second Chance wants to find new ways to raise the needed funds to bring these dreams to fruition. An adjacent building on the Wellness Center property will have a thrift shop to help turn donations of items into some of those needed funds.

This year we will have helped nearly 10,000 pets a through spay/neuter, wellness clinics, adoption, and various other programs of Second Chance. We need you so we can help keep more pets out of shelters and save more lives!

We need to pause and think of how much our pets mean to us. They add so much to our lives; lower our blood pressure, make us smile, offer unconditional love and enrich our lives in so many ways. We need to give back to them by providing every possible resource to make a difference. Please consider joining in our “Paws for the Cause” drive to raise the funds for this project.

Besides helping pets, this project provides a great educational opportunity for students from the Bay Path Vocational School in Charlton. The students are already on site in North Brookfield beginning this project. As supplies are received and money is raised, they will continue to provide the FREE labor project while learning important life skills in their chosen trades. Every donation serves two purposes – to help more pets and to educate the children of our future.

Second Chance will gladly accept donations in any amount or you can choose a category. Donations of materials will count towards the recognition program outlined below. Please fill out the form below or contact the shelter with what you can do to help. Choose your level in this quest for help for every pet! These plaques will all be displayed in our new community education room at the Wellness Center!
