Meet Our Cat Of The Month

Petey was found outside with a big open wound on his back. He had surgery to close the wound since but is still recovering. We don’t know why anyone would leave this boy outside to fend for himself, but Petey is a friendly boy. Petey was born around February, 2018. He is FIV positive but can live a long happy life indoors.
  You can fill out an application here.

Thank you to the Petco Love Foundation for awarding Second Chance a grant to be used for our lifesaving efforts.   Second Chance is so thankful for the support of the Petco Love Foundation!

We Need Your Help

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic causing financial hardships for most people along with the OC Shelter being closed to the public and not helping with any spay or neuter services for cats for the last 16 months, Second Chance has exhausted our finances helping residents all over Southern California pay for their pet’s needed veterinary care, paying for emergency care for injured stray cats, as well as paying for the spay & neuter of over 260 cats.

Please help Second Chance continue to be able to help cats and kittens needing medical care by making a donation. Donations are our only source of income and we don’t receive any government or corporate funding. We really need your help to keep doing what we do. Any amount is greatly appreciated. Thank you.


100% of Feral Cats & Kittens brought to most shelters DIE!

We've all seen them - the cats living in business areas, empty lots behind restaurants, at airports and schools, maybe in your own neighborhood or backyard. Unless spayed or neutered, these cats will continue to breed and reproduce at an astronomical rate.

The only humane way to reduce the feral and stray cat population is by an active Return-To Home program.  Cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and ear-tipped and then returned to back to their home/neighborhood that they were originally brought in from. This keeps new cats from coming into the area, greatly reduces fighting and spraying behavior, improves the overall health of the cats and DIRECTLY REDUCES THE NUMBER OF ANIMALS BEING EUTHANIZED AT THE COUNTY SHELTERS!

The OC Animal Care Shelter stopped providing Return-To-Home services in February 2020 due to covid restrictions. This has negated all of the work previously done by rescues through Return-To-Home programs and Orange County is now overwhelmed with cats and kittens.   We need your help to get the Return-To-Home program back at the OC Animal Care Shelter.   Please contact the OC Animal Care Shelter and your Mayor & City Council members and let them know that you support the Return-To-Home program and want it reinstated.

If you're feeding a stray community cat, take it to be spayed or neutered as soon as possible to prevent kittens.
You'll be happy you did!

Please get involved in this worthwhile program. For more information on how you can help or assistance with stray cats in your area, email us at -



If you find baby kittens, unless they are in immediate danger, please do not touch or move them.

Their Mama is probably close by or has just gone to find food.

Please email
so that we can help get the Mama spayed and assist with options for the kittens.

We know that some of our cats, for whatever reasons — old age, personality, or medical problems — will never be adopted. We cherish these kitties and always want to be able to provide the best for them.
That's why we have the SPONSOR-A-CAT program. You can become a sponsor for just $10 a month. Your donation will help pay to relocate a cat to a sanctuary where they will live cage-free in a safe, protected environment and receive love and attention, along with needed medical care.

To sponsor a cat, please choose one of them from here - SPONSOR CATS
