Second Chance Pets is a foster-based rescue organization - we do not have a shelter or employ any paid staff. Instead, we rely on a network of caring volunteers for all facets of our animal rescue and adoption activities. Volunteer opportunities abound and you will get great joy and satisfaction in knowing that you played a key role in helping SCP place our adoptable animals into loving, forever homes! Here are some of the ways you can help:

Foster a Cat or Dog - our #1 need is always more foster homes and the whole family can participate! To learn more about fostering for SCP please see our Foster Brochure .
Assist at Adoption Events - setup/breakdown tables and cages, water/walk dogs, sell t-shirts
  Animal Transport - help transport foster animals to/from vet appointments or adoption events
  Cat Condo Cleaning - work a weekly 1 hour shift to care for cats (3-4) staying in the Petco condos
  Fundraising Events - join a committee for our annual fundraiser/auction and/or other events as planned
  Community Outreach - be an "SCP Ambassador" by helping staff our information booth at local events
  Publicity/Communications - help get the word out about SCP to others in the community
  Graphic Design - assist with efforts to showcase our adoptable animals via flyers, posters and ads
  Donation Drives - collect food and supplies needed to care for animals in our foster program
  Administrative Support - apply your computer/financial/software skills to various tasks
Photography - take photos at SCP events to capture the moment or help photograph adoptable animals
  General Volunteer Support - be on our email distribution to be notified about new volunteer needs
