Jinx is a sweet, but shy Border Collie who came to us from a hoarding situation of about twenty dogs so he is still learning the basics of being a happy, normal dog. He is making progress but will need some more time to really figure things out such as how to walk on leash and will need someone who is patient enough to provide the care that he needs. Other than that, we predict a happy, successful future for him!
The Second Chance Humane Society has been serving Ouray and San Miguel Counties in southwestern Colorado since 1994. Our mission is to fulfill the vision of loving homes for all pets through honoring the human-animal bond by promoting responsible pet parenting.
We are a private non-profit organization supported by membership dues, donations, grants, and fund raising events. Currently, we fulfill our mission through the operation of a no-kill shelter and foster care program. While in our shelter and foster programs, abused animals learn to trust again, abandoned animals bond with humans again, whenever possible sick animals are healed, and adoptable animals are placed with new families.
SCHS also operates a feral cat, mobile adoption, and other community education and outreach programs. Visit our website for a list of special events and fundraisers.

Our Adoption Process...
If you are interested in adopting or the adoption process please visit our website at www.adoptmountianpets.org where you will find the application and other useful information or call the Shelter between 11:00 am and 5:00 pm Tuesday through Sunday 970 626 2273.
During the adoption process each potential new owner is interviewed and carefully matched with the animal that best suits the adopter's situation and expectations, to ensure that both will enjoy a long, happy relationship. Our adoptions fees are dependent on species (dog/cat) and age. All animals adopted from the Second Chance Humane Society will have had at least their first set of vaccinations and will be spayed or neutered, the humane way to reduce dog and cat over population.
