Second Chance would not exist if it were not for the wonderful volunteers. You will find them at any given time working at the Adoption Center, at the Dog Ranch, doing dog washes, fostering animals, running adoption events, helping with fundraising activities, and taking care of all of the needs of our furry friends. If you love animals and have the time and energy to give, please consider, please contact CSC at email@example.com or phone 660-882-5050.
Work in Our Adoption Center
Our adoption center is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We are always looking for friendly folks who can greet visitors and care for dogs who are there to be seen. It's a great way to get to know other volunteers and our adoptable animals.
Pet Photo Events
Help our photographers take pictures of pets for the holidays; Valentine's Day, Easter, Halloween, Christmas. These events also serve as mini-adoption events and are a lot of fun.
Would you like to make a lot of new furry friends? Come hang out with the dogs at the Ranch (30 minutes from Columbia) or the cats at the Adoption Center (10 minutes from Columbia). Animals at both places require daily love and care, feeding & scooping.
Dog washes are held during the summer and are a terrific fundraiser for CSC. These events also double as adoption events. Many volunteers are needed to pull off a successful dog wash.
Use Videos, Web, and other E-Communication
We need some creative folks to help our animals get more exposure on the web! We will meet to talk about how to make that happen through posting videos, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Volunteers can work on this flexibly as their schedule permits.
New Volunteer Training
Learn about the history of CSC and how we are part of the no-kill movement that is sweeping our country. Hear more about how you can participate.
Work With Cats
We need volunteers who can either go regularly (one day a week for about two hours) or occasionally (flexibly as your schedule permits) to visit cats in our adoption center about a 10 minute drive from Columbia. Weekly visitors are paired with another volunteer to feed and care for the cats.
Pet Foster Parent
Foster homes allow us to save more animals. We are looking for foster homes for dogs, cats, kittens and puppies. We work with you to make sure you take a foster that fits in your home situation. We provide the food and vet care - you provide the love! To learn more about fostering, click here.
Take Animals to New Homes
We get requests several times a month to help transport dogs or cats who are traveling long distances to foster or permanent homes. People all across the country join together to drive a portion of the trip, knowing that they are helping animals get to where they will be loved and cared for. If you are interested in hearing when these transports are coming through Columbia, let us know and we'll add you to the list! The request is often for someone to drive part of the way to Kansas City or St. Louis. You decide on a case-by-case basis when you are available. (Folks who do this have AMAZING stories to tell).
We need help away with computer database work as well as record input work. After some training, this can be done from your home instead of the Adoption Center. We look forward to working with you!
