How can I meet animals that are available for adoption?

We strongly suggest you have an application submitted prior to visiting any animal in our program.

Second Chance has a facility that houses most of the cats in our program. It is located 1 mile west of the State Fairgrounds at 6003 Chapel Hill Road, Suite 133, Raleigh, NC 27607.

All of the dogs in our program are housed in foster homes. After your application has been submitted and approved, we can set up a time for you to meet the dog with his or her foster parents.

We are open for cat adoptions at our adoption center Monday through Friday from 11 AM to 5 PM.

For dog adoption events, please see our Calendar of Events.
