Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
The Second Chance Fund provides financial support for charitable, scientific, and educational purposes. This includes funding veterinary care for:
****Humane society animals who require care/surgery prior to adoption. This includes spays, neuters, vaccinations, and preventative health care.
****Assistance to breed rescue groups
****Extreme hardship cases - animals who are surrendered to the Second Chance Fund for further care.
When it is determined that an animal can be made whole, healthy, and happy, they are given a "second chance" at life. We can then offer them hope for a future full of happiness and love through careful placement in an adoptive home.
Funding Sources Include:
**Donations from veterinary hospitals, pet owners, the general public, local businesses, and drug companies.
**Fundraisers such as the doggie dash, garage sales, calendars, and bake sales.
**Advanced directives and estate planning

If you are interested in adopting a Second Chance animal you must:
Schedule a time to meet the available animal, during their designated "adoption period". If you have dogs at home you must bring them along to meet the pet.
Fill out the application completely and to the best of your ability. This is avaliable on our website (www.thesecondchancefund.org) or at the Lodi Veterinary Hospital or DeForest Veterinary Care.
You must return the application by the deadline date to be considered.
Understand that the Second Chance Fund has the right to accept or deny any application.
The purpose of the application is to determine who is seriously interested in adopting a Second Chance animal. There is an adoption committee that is responsible for determining ownership. If several applications are received of equal qualification, a random drawing will be held to determine ownership of said animal. If you are not chosen to be the adopted parent of the Second Chance animal, this is not a reflection of your ability to care for your pets.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns regarding the Second Chance fund
You can call 608 593-3232 for more information on any Second Chance animal listed. Please ask to speak with Jaymee or Becky.
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.
