Second Chance Humane Society serves the Johnstown, Ohio and Licking, Franklin and Delaware County areas.

About Our Shelter:

Second Chance Humane Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit all volunteer organization created to help the many abandoned pets in our area find shelter and new forever homes. Most of our animals have been found by good samaritans who bring them to us, or from pet owners who need to surrender their pets for various reasons.

Each animal in our care receives thorough vet examinations and any vet services needed to ensure good health. Each is also evaluated for temperament to help us determine the best possible home situation and if any behavior modification and/or training is needed prior to adoption.

The majority of our funding is obtained through adoption fees and donations.

Our Adoption Process:

In order to adopt and find the best pet for you and the best forever home for our animals, we require an adoption application to be filled out. Once the application is filled out, we review the information. Potential adopters are notifed by our Adoption Coordinator with the results of our revew.

Our fee is $125.00 which includes veterinary care and s/n up to the date of adoption.

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.
