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.

During the adoption process each potential new owner is interviewed and carefully matched with the animal that best suits the adopter's situation and expectations, to ensure that both will enjoy a long, happy relationship. Our adoptions fees are dependent on species (dog/cat) and age. All animals adopted from the Second Chance Humane Society will have had at least their first set of vaccinations and will be spayed or neutered, the humane way to reduce dog and cat over population.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
