Although the Second Chance shelter is temporarily closed to the public as a precaution due to COVID-19, w still have many wonderful pets for adoption. They would make amazing companions to those who are self quarantine...no one needs to be alone when you can have a furry best friend! They need you as much as you need them.
Pets can always make you smile and feel better, and during these difficult times, that is exactly what we need! In order to facilitate continued adoptions during these stressful times, we are offering adoption by appointment.
In order to keep everyone safe, we have some basic guidelines in place.
Quarantine Buddy Guidelines 1. The shelter is closed to the public, but individuals who find a pet online that they are interested in may set up an appointment to visit and meet the pet. 2. We ask that if you or anyone in your household has been ill or potentially exposed to COVID-19 that you NOT schedule an appointment and that you cancel if you do begin to develop symptoms. We want to keep our staff and volunteers healthy. 3. Please be patient. We are working with a very limited staff and all working very hard to take great care of our pets. 4. Not all pets may be available to leave during this time as we will not be able to do full family meet and greets and may be limited on availability to do dog meets and greets. 5. Not all pets will be available to leave the same day. 6. All adoptions will require an approved, online application. 7. Many pets will be eligible for foster homes. 8. If you are immune compromised, we encourage you to talk to your doctor before setting up an appointment.
We hope that by continuing to make pets available for adoption and foster during this challenging time, we can help our community better cope with and recover from social isolation AND help our wonderful pets find loving homes.
