Second Chance Spca
My wife and I had been debating adopting a fourth fur baby but made up our minds when we saw Madonna (now Phoebe) on the Second Chance website. She is the third dog we've adopted over the years from this shelter and each experience has been wonderful. We got to spend some time in their yard with Phoebe and then arranged a meeting with two of our dogs. Kendel spent a lot of time with us and the dogs, monitoring behaviors and helping us to ensure the dogs were a good match. They were, and now Phoebe is a great member of our pack. We appreciate the efforts Second Chance makes on behalf of both the animals and the adoptees to make sure it is a good adoption for all.
Tips & Advices
Most city and county shelters offer affordable spay/neuter services. SPCA and Humane Society shelters also are known for their low-cost spay/neuter programs.
Shelters typically offer spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping and some essential medical treatment (deworming, mange treatment) to animals being adopted from the shelter. For other veterinary services, you will need to find a vet.
No-kill and low-kill shelters will state it in their online profile and other official materials. They will usually explain what their process/policy is for looking after the animals in their care. These are also known as “limited admission” shelters because they are usually at full capacity most or all of the time. Also, they often work with rescue organizations or county Animal Services authorities to accommodate animals living in inhumane conditions, abandoned or injured animals.
Anyone can bring a lost animal to a county or municipal shelter. However, private shelters affiliated with rescues often will not accept animals, whether lost or surrendered by owners. Shelters with low-kill policies often have a limited admission capability.
Adopting an adult dog from a county or city shelter usually costs $75-$100. Young adult purebreds and puppies often have a higher adoption fee.  The fee to adopt a cat is usually about $50– sometimes with discounts if one new owner adopts two cats. The adoption fee usually covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery and essential vaccinations.
