I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter . . . the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal.
I was angry.
"God" I said, "this is terrible!

God was silent for a moment, and then spoke softly, "I have done something," was the reply. "I created you."

In Memory of ...

Some of us simply cannot bring ourselves to go to a shelter and pick out a dog or a cat from so many eager—or shy—faces looking back at us. Emotions run high when we have to leave behind so many crestfallen faces, each of whom could make a wonderful pet. Many of these animals are in the shelter due to no fault of their own . . . perhaps their owner has died with no one to care for them, a family has suffered a job loss, or some other unforeseen circumstance.

second chance pals was formed to save the lives of many adult adoptable pets by getting them into foster care and out of an already crowded and chaotic shelter situation. We also intend to feature these older animals that remain in the shelter awaiting foster care. This, in turn, should give them a greater chance at a finding a forever home.

5/31/16: Buddy was heartworm positive and had just been added to scp. He was in a foster home and we didn't have all of his information yet. He received his first heartworm injection and passed away last night. We're very sad about losing Buddy.
