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.

In the current climate, we have made the sad decision to close to all volunteers and visitors.

We are doing this to protect the health of the staff at Second Chance, as some of them have existing health conditions.

If you have any urgent inquiries please call 02380559552 and leave a message with your name and number and we will get back to you when we can.

We are still very happy and thankful for pet food donations to be left in our donations shed,
 but please don’t worry about the animals in our care, we have checked our stock levels of essentials and we do have enough to last us for the next month.
We are also suspending all fundraising events.

We hope everyone can understand our decision and we apologise for any inconvenience.

Thank you
