Second Chance 4 Pets Network was founded in 2012 to fill a need to help pets not only in our community but throughout the northwest Indiana region.
Our volunteers are committed to helping people help animals whether finding an adoptive home for a homeless pet, helping a person on a limited income keep their beloved pet in their home, or reducing pet overpopulation by spaying/neutering free-roaming strays. Our goal is to network with other animal rescue and no-kill shelters and help as many animals as we possibly can.
Second Chance 4 Pets Network, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Our tax id # is 37-1664589.
Our Mission Statement
The mission of Second Chance 4 Pets Network is "helping people help animals".
We provide foster care and an adoption program, T-N-R (trap, neuter & return of feral cats), a rehoming assistance program, community education, and networking with local shelters and rescues. We also help with spay/neutering and low-cost vaccinations to those pet owners in need.
Since our inception in 2012, we have spay/neutered over 650 cats and dogs and adopted 352 cats and 215 dogs into loving, permanent homes. Our goal is to increase those numbers every year.
Our lifesaving percentage is 95%. Of the 215 intakes in 2016, 194 survived. Five died in our care, and 6 had to be euthanized for a terminal illness. Though we sadly lost 11 animals in 2016, 194 lived resulting in a 95% lifesaving percentage.
