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.

PLEASE NOTE DUE TO THE HIGH DEMAND FOR DOGS DURING THE COVID LOCKDOWN THE NUMBER OF DOGS IN RESCUE IS MINIMAL. PLEASE BE PATIENT, TAKING ON A DOG IS NOT SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE RUSHED INTO. THERE ARE MANY SCAMMERS TAKING ADVANTAGE SO WE ASK THAT YOU TAKE EXTREME CARE DURING THIS PANDEMIC. Not all our dogs in rescue waiting for homes are shown on the website. 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.
