Pets at Our Shelter:

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!

About Our Shelter:

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

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption fee is $40.00. 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.

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
