I've had the opportunity to volunteer with this organization at a few of their events and they are so wonderful. The facility they now have for their cats and dogs is so amazing and open, allowing for so many more lovely animals to be saved. They also cooperate with a lot of other local no-kill and animal welfare groups in town so that we can all work together to provide a safe environment for all animals and move towards a no-kill world! I love getting to volunteer for the events that they host and co-host with other organizations! I always recommend Second Chance to people looking for a pet or looking for information about cats, kittens, puppies, and dogs. Keep up the fabulous work and continue saving lives!

Columbia Second Chance has the unique opportunity to match animals with families. These animals come from the humane society, other homes, or are found as strays. Many are placed in foster care where our foster families learn all about the animal. Learning about them helps to find the best placement. Our mission to help the animals in our program find their forever home.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I originally found Columbia Second Chance several years ago when we adopted a cat at an adoption event at Petco.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build a special cat facility close to town that would have rooms for our special cats, isolation rooms for sick cats, and special kitten viewing rooms. I'd also have a vet on staff and have a special space in the building just for vet care.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
