Transport details:
Please register by calling us (217-935-3488) ahead of time to reserve your spot. We load at the Clinton shelter (900 S. Cain St., Clinton, IL) at 7:00am sharp.  Your pets are then transported to our Partner Clinic located in Springfield where they are health evaluated before they receive their requested surgery and services. They are then returned to the shelter in Clinton the following morning at approximately 8:15-8:45am. Pease be there to pick up your pet and your paperwork.  Payment for services is due at the time of drop off. We accept cash (exact change please) or checks payable to Second Chance.

Our monthly low-cost clinics are only available if you are having your animal sterilized. You cannot obtain the discounted shots or other services without having your pet fixed to stop the over-population problem! 

Why does the APLS offer such low cost spay and neuters to pit bulls and pit bull mixes? The sheer number of them that are killed in shelters all across the country every single day is astonishing.

Pit bulls are euthanized more than any other breed - only 1 in 600 pit bulls that enters an animal shelter will leave alive. Please have your pit bull or pit bull mix spayed or neutered today. By not breeding your pet pit bull or pit bull mix, you will be doing your part to help control the pit bull overpopulation problem and help keep pit bulls and mixes out of shelters and out of the hands of people who want to do harm to them.

Pit bull puppies like the ones in this beautiful litter are winding up in shelters all across the country because they are being bred faster than they can be sold. The pit bull overpopulation problem is an epidemic right now.
