Second Chance for Animals, Inc. is a nonprofit volunteer group devoted to enhancing the lives, adoption rates, and experiences of the animals living in shelters.
We currently assist the Franklin Township, NJ Animal Shelter.

SCFA always need volunteers! Due to cut-backs at the Township our help is needed more than ever. We can always use folks in all areas of our group.
Call 732 748-SCFA (7232) and let us know you would like to help. Be sure to leave a clear message and include how we can reach you.
You must be 18 or older in order to work with the animals.

Due to Megan Haber, a member of Girl Scout Troop 66322, as part of her Gold Award, our cats and small animals now have a wonderful new space to safely have that window-like experience and stretch their legs. Thanks Megan!

Our adoption day/fundraising event that was held on Saturday June 27th at Venus Jewelers was quite successful despite the rainy weather. We received $205 in monetary donations along with many bags and cans of food for the animals at the shelter. Venus Jewelers will also be donating 10% of their sales for that day! Three of our kitties and our little pit bull puppy, although not adopted, got to spend some time amongst the jewels and friendly customers!
Thank you Venus Jewelers and thanks to all the volunteers who helped make this a great day.
