Located in Campbellfield, Victoria, Second Chance Animal Rescue is a pro-life charity that operates with the help of foster carers and volunteers to rescue and re-home dogs and cats that need a ‘second chance’.
Second Chance Animal Rescue was founded in 2008 after vet nurse and local shelter volunteer Marisa Debattista witnessed firsthand how many beautiful animals needed help, versus how little resources were available.
Knowing she could make a change, Marisa launched Second Chance Animal Rescue with a few vet nurse friends and a handful of animals. Since then, they have grown into a network of hundreds of foster carers and other volunteers, with just as many cats and dogs in care. By the end of 2015 over 6000 animals had been rescued from not-so-pleasant fates in pounds and shelters throughout Victoria, and are now happily settled in new homes around the state.
On April 19th, 2015, after many years of planning and endless fundraising efforts, their first animal shelter opened in Campbellfield, Victoria.
Second Chance Animal Rescue is a not-for-profit organisation with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status, meaning all donations over $2 are tax deductible.
