About us

our history

Second Chance for Pets is a not-for-profit organization started in 1998 and made up of volunteers, most of whom have full-time jobs outside of the organization. We constantly strive to find suitable adoptive homes for our animals, through ads and pictures placed in the local newspapers, and on the Petfinder website. Because of this, hundreds of animals have been saved and have avoided death by euthanasia. We also rely on good foster homes to care for animals from the shelter until permanent homes can be found, so we are always in need of volunteers and good foster families. We pay for vet care for any shelter animal or foster care animal that has need and furnish distemper vaccinations to all animals in the shelter and foster homes. We also pay for internet service and maintain this website so that the animals can have as much exposure to future adoptive homes as possible.

who we work with

We work closely with DeWitt County Animal Shelter, Animal Control, the DeWitt County Vet Administrator, as well as local and surrounding high kill shelters. We are not limited to DeWitt County only. Local veternarians we use include Town and Country in Normal, Northgate in Decatur, Timber Crest in Atlanta, and Covenant in Clinton. We would like to extend our appreciation to these vets for helping us out!
