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
Hamilton and Toby
A New Friendship - Toby and Hamilton... Previously we have added Toby and Hamilton separately looking for homes. However, since Toby has come down to main cattery, these 2 gorgeous boys have become the best of friends. The boys are always together - causing mischief. They love to play and run around the garden. Usually they can be found sat side by side. We would love to find them a home as a pair, where they can continue exploring and causing trouble! Both boys like space and are very affectionate. They both would prefer a home with older children. Toby is 3 years old and Hamilton is 2/3 years old. Both of them are vaccinated, neutered and microchipped.
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.

New Forest Show
These are some photos from our stand at the New Forest Show.  
We were lucky to be selected as one of their charities this year. 
We had a great time, such a busy show, lots of people and lots of hard work but we raised over £1500 over the 3 days!
 Thank you to The New Forest Show for having us and all the lovely people who donated, tombola-ed and bought at our stand!
