Second Chance Upgrades Website

As announced in a previous Pet Column, 2009 marks the 15 year Anniversary of Second Chance Humane Society.  It also marks the complete re-design of our website.  Although still using the same website address:, everything else has been significantly upgraded.  We have added new features such as credit card donation capability, a blog to archived weekly Pet Columns, contact forms, and links to our adoptable pets.  Dayzign Graphics, right here in Ridgway, took our deluge of thoughts and ideas and created a very eye-catching website that we are proud of.

You can now donate directly and securely on-line to your favorite Second Chance program, sponsor a homeless pet, or renew your membership.  The revised website also makes it easier to view our adoptable pets, receive updates on events, explore volunteer opportunities, and be informed on all the services and programs that Second Chance offers to our community. 

This project took a great deal of work and we are very pleased with how well it communicates all that we do as an organization.  It also displays a great deal of our volunteer photographer’s pet photos.  Kaycee Clark, of Real Life Photographs, comes to the shelter weekly to capture the unique and varied personalities of all of our homeless pets and these photos are interspersed throughout the website giving it added appeal.

Additionally, the Shelter database has recently been upgraded to a new free system that not only tracks all the medical, health, and historical data of all pets coming in/out of the shelter but integrates pet insurance and microchip identification as well.   We now offer all adopters a free month of pet health insurance for any pet they adopt (all of which are vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spay/neutered).

The new database automatically uploads and manages all adoptable pet profiles to our website and other nation-wide pet adoption websites we are affiliated with – saving us time and money!  As you will see on the website the new adoptable pet profiles are larger and easier to read – which I prefer so that potential adopters can better see my beautiful eyes that are saying, “Take me home with you!”…

My name is “Sweetpea” and I am a gentle natured Boxer-mix looking for my new home.  If you want a loyal, fun, and very loving new family member – I am your girl – check me out on our website today!

Call the Second Chance Helpline at 626-2273 to report a lost pet, learn about adopting a homeless pet, or about the SCHS Spay/Neuter Financial Assistance, Volunteer & Foster Care, or other Programs.  Visit our shelter pets online:  Direct Pet Column questions to:  kelly@secondchancehumanesociety.orgPhoto by Real Life Photographs.
