Support Dog Adoption and Rescue. Why go to a dog breeder or pet store to buy a dog when you can adopt?
Our Featured Boaz, AL Partner:

Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
We are a non-profit, no-kill, 501(c)3 organization. The majority of our dogs come from local animal control agencies. We mainly serve Marshall, DeKalb, Etowah, and Blount counties. Although, we have had adoptions as far away as Indiana!
My name is Wanda McGee, and my husband, Doug, and I started the Second Chance Shelter in May of 2008. He was a police officer in Albertville, AL and they were euthanizing over 130 healthy dogs a month just in this small town. We had to do something! We are a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization. We operate mainly off of private donations. However, if we receive a dog from Albertville City or Marshall County animal control, we receive $60.00 per dog, which pretty much covers the cost of spaying/neutering that dog.
Come Meet our Pets:
Our address is 130 County Road 398, Boaz AL. Our operating hours are 9-4 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. 9-2 on Saturday, and closed on Sunday and Wednesday. We do lots of off- site adoption events when the weather permits. Check out our facebook page at www.facebook.com/2ndchanceshelter.
Our Adoption Process:
Our adoption fee is $30.00. We have a detailed adoption application, we do not adopt out dogs that have not been spayed or neutered, and we do not allow dogs adopted from the shelter to be placed on permanent chains.
