About Our Shelter:The Second Chance Humane Society has been serving Ouray and San Miguel Counties in southwestern Colorado since 1994. Our mission is to fulfill the vision of loving homes for all pets through honoring the human-animal bond by promoting responsible pet parenting.
We are a private non-profit organization supported by membership dues, donations, grants, and fund raising events. Currently, we fulfill our mission through the operation of a no-kill shelter and foster care program. While in our shelter and foster programs, abused animals learn to trust again, abandoned animals bond with humans again, whenever possible sick animals are healed, and adoptable animals are placed with new families.
SCHS also operates a feral cat, mobile adoption, and other community education and outreach programs. Visit our website for a list of special events and fundraisers.
