Our mission is to help homeless and needy cats and to pursue their adoption. As a no-kill shelter, Second Chance is a true sanctuary. It is a strong advocate for the spaying and neutering of cats and dogs – all cats available for adoption from Second Chance have been, or are required to be, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
About SECOND CHANCE WILDLIFE SANCTUARY
Second Chance Wildlife Sanctuary was founded in 1996 by Joyce Smith and upon her passing in 2008 has been run by a board of directors. We are located in North Pickering on land generously provided by the ClubLink Corporation. We receive no government funding of any kind and rely on private donations to continue operating. Run by volunteers and employing a small number of part-time staff, our administrative costs are minimal, ensuring that donations go straight to the bottom line, i.e., housing, feeding, spaying/neutering and medicating the feline residents.
