Foster. Adopt. Educate.

At Second Chance, we make families. Founded in 1985, we are the largest animal rescue group in mid-Missouri. With just two staff members and more than 100 volunteers, we play matchmaker to more than 700 animals each year.

Stop by and see us one weekend at our Adoption Center just west of Columbia or at one of our many adoption events around the area; we might just have your new family member waiting for you! Learn more about us and our mission.
