Every Dog Deserves a Second Chance 
In a world where animal “shelters” are often just stopovers on the way to euthanasia—where abandoned, neglected, abused, and troubled pets are condemned for the carelessness of humans—there is a place where dogs get a second chance at life, love, and happiness.

Second Chance at Love Humane Society
We are a no-kill animal welfare organization, was founded in 1994 for our society’s dog outcasts: Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, and other strong-willed breeds; "widowed" senior citizen dogs; dogs without leaders or advocates; dogs trained to fear and fight. Few humans have a heart for sick, old, troubled or intimidating dogs. Few dare to take on the challenge these animals present. Few realize that, if given the chance, there is certain hope for these tragically misunderstood animals.

Second Chance at Love Humane Society dares to care
These mutt misfits and condemned canines are the voiceless, helpless souls for which our hearts break. But to truly save them takes more than just compassion and shelter. With each rescue comes the challenge to turn around a lost-cause dog and make it adoptable and balanced so that its next home will be its forever home. The process takes patience, fierce determination, constant leadership, lots of exercise, and diligent discipline. Since many Second Chance dogs never received this sort of stability and security, this is often their first chance at being a dog.
