Mission Second Chance Animal Sanctuary is a "no-kill" animal shelter , whose mission is to provide rescue, shelter, proper veterinary care including spay & neuter, and adoption services for abandoned dogs and cats in central Oklahoma.
Background Second Chance Animal Sanctuary was founded by a group of four individuals in Norman who were concerned about the number of animals being euthanized at public shelters in central Oklahoma. After outgrowing its original location in a private garage, it was relocated to a storefront next to a 7/11. A drive to build a new shelter was begun in 1991 and our present building was constructed on 3+ acres of land donated to us by the McKown family. Since this time we have added car ports, constructed a storage building, replaced the heating and air system, and upgraded the surgical unit all through our fundraising monies. These funds have allowed us over $100,000 of improvements to our existing facility. Our fundraising has consisted of  a yearly Dog Day in the park, an evening Bark and Roll, 4-5 benefit sales of donated items, Buchanan's Flea Market sales, and over 60 donation canisters in local businesses in Norman, Moore, Midwest City, and OKC. Our staff consists of a shelter manager, a part time veterinarian, one registered vet tech, an office manager, and approximately 15 kennel techs. 
For 29 years, Second Chance Animal Sanctuary has been working to help homeless dogs and cats find their way into safe, permanent and loving homes.  Every animal has a story and many of those stories are heart-breaking, but in every case there is a common theme: an animal that deserves a second chance at life. EACH ADOPTION SAVES TWO LIVES...AND ENRICHES ANOTHER! When you adopt, not only do you save the life of one animal, but it frees up critical space so that we can rescue a second pet.  And of course, the life that is yours. We have been able to provide the community furry companions, yearly vaccination clinics, and educational programs on responsible animal care. Emphasis is also placed on public awareness of the importance of spay/neuter efforts in controlling the overpopulation of animals in central Oklahoma. Our goals for the upcoming year include expanding our donor base to include local businesses and corporations, to hold significant community events to increase public awareness of our facility and the availability of animals for adoptions, and to better utilize our available land for our animals.
Our primary needs are as follows:
-Increase financial resources and stability 
-Expansion of our online donor base 
-Identification and utilization of grants to fund shelter projects
-Development of an online newsletter to expand public awareness of our shelter and its programs and events
-To recruit an individual to coordinate volunteer activities at the shelter
CEO/Executive Director Statement Second Chance Animal Sanctuary is committed to making certain our animals are placed in loving homes.  We thoroughly screen our potential adopters with a detailed adoption application and questionnaire which ensures our dogs and cats do not bounce back into our shelter.  This obviously protects the animals, but it also provides education and awareness for individuals who are seeking to adopt.  Pet adoption is not something you decide on the spur of the moment and pets cannot be adopted as surprise birthday gifts.  We are proud of our adoption screening process and it has proven to be most successful.
