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 is 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 do not receive any funding from county or state government. We operate solely on private donations.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our address is 130 County Road 398, Boaz, AL 35957. Our hours are 9-4, closed on Sunday and Wednesday.
We do adoption days off-site at least twice a month. Pet-Smart in Oxford, AL and usually Pet Depot in Guntersville, AL, or Tractor Supply in Boaz, AL.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption fee is $30.00. We have an adoption application, require that no dog is put on a permanent chain, and we require that if a dog has not been spayed or neutered at the time of adoption, the adopter agrees to have it done. We rarely adopt out adult dogs that have not been spayed or neutered.

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.
