Welcome to Second Chance Animal Rescue

Welcome to Second Chance Animal Rescue

Second Chance Animal Rescue, registered charity no. 1002511, is based in Southampton. We are a small rescue that deals with dogs, cats, small animals, and wildlife.  We have a dedicated team of volunteers that enable us to help as many animals as we possibly can.  For over 30 years we have been helping animals find new homes that they can be happy in, but as always, there are more animals that need help than there are homes.  Some of the many things we do here are: - to hand-raise orphaned animals, and in the case of wildlife, release them back into the wild when they are old enough; vaccinate and microchip all animals for rehoming, and treat any illness or injury of the animals in our care.  On this website, you can find out more about which animals are in desperate need of loving homes.

If you are interested in one of our animals, please contact us first as viewing is by appointment. Call us on 023 8055 9552, the best time to call is between 10am & 2pm, Monday to Friday.  

We also work closely with  Second Chance Animal Rescue Portsmouth cats.  If you want to rehome a cat in that area, please contact Janeen or Simon on 01329 311192

Our Patrons are TV presenter Fred Dinenage MBE, and Sir Richard and Lady Leigh.

Latest Pets
Leroy and Sir Tickolas
Leroy and Sir Tickolas came into rescue as their owners were moving. They are a handsome 21 month old pair of brothers, both neutered and vaccinated. Leroy is more outgoing than Sir Tickolas and would probably prefer to go together.
Not all our dogs appear on the website
This may not be all the dogs in rescue waiting for homes. The dogs photographed above are now all in homes but some may be awaiting neutering, vaccinating or rehabilitation.Please give us a call and we can take your details and let you know when something comes in that may suit you. We do only keep details for 1 month as we assume you are actively looking, so call again if you gave details and haven’t heard from us.
Latest News
Earlier in the year, Pets at Home ran a competition asking people to vote for their favorite animal charity and thanks to all our supporters, we were voted best in the area!!
We would like to thank everyone who voted for us, it is truly wonderful to know we have the support of so many people who, like us, care so passionately for the welfare of all the amazing animals that need our help. 
We would also like to thank Pets at Home, firstly for hosting the competition and secondly for their very generous prizes. An in-store voucher will be a massive boost for us and will ensure the cats and dogs that come into our care over the coming months will not go hungry. We also received a cheque which will make such a huge difference. The money has been shared equally between Second Chance Southampton and Second Chance - Portsmouth Cats
A long overdue new boiler will now be installed at Southampton ensuring the central heating to all the kennels and both the catteries will work perfectly, guaranteeing every cat and dog warmth and comfort this winter. 
At Portsmouth, the money has already been spent. We no longer have to feel embarrassed as we walk through the door of our long suffering vets, as it is the first time this year we have been out of debt with them. At least, for a few weeks. 
Once again, thank you to Pets at Home and to all our supporters xx
