Columbia Second Chance was founded in 1985 as a privately-funded, all-volunteer organization dedicated to “seeking first-class homes for second-hand pets.” Through the kindness of our volunteers and our foster homes, we care for animals of all types, either on a temporary basis while we search for a new, permanent home, or on a long-term basis while the animal is treated for illness or injury. At no time are animals euthanized just because they don’t have a home – all animals have a home at Columbia Second Chance. Animals are accepted on a space-available basis.
Our mission is to provide for the benevolent relief of unwanted animals. The organization will provide food, shelter, medical assistance, and general relief to those animals that have been made homeless through the acts or omissions of people; to provide this care for each animal while researching and approving permanent adoptive homes; to educate the public regarding the health, exercise, and general needs of these animals, as well as to the necessity of spaying and neutering as a means of alleviating the burden of unwanted animals; and to do every act as may be necessary to aid and assist the community in providing quality, permanent homes for these animals and to promote the goals and gains of this mission.
