Second Chance at Love Humane Society is a no-kill animal welfare organization, founded in 1994 by renowned dog-behaviorist, Cheri Lucas, for our society’s dog outcasts. Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, and other strong-willed breeds, senior citizen dogs, dogs without advocates are all welcomed to Second Chance at Love. 


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 is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, 91-181621. We are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of dogs in dire need. We are located in Templeton, CA, San Luis Obispo County.
