Second Chance Center for Animals (SCCA) is a unique sheltering model which serves the needs of homeless and abandoned animals throughout Northern Arizona. Opened in 2004, the center was founded by the Robert T. Wilson Foundation. Today, SCCA is a state-of-the-art 20,000 square foot limited intake animal shelter and training facility. We "rescue from the rescues," TM
working with over 37 humane and open-intake shelters and rescues. We provide a helping hand to these organizations by taking in adoptable animals only and exclusively from them. Thereby providing second chances to adoptable animals that might be scheduled for euthanasia or that have been with one of our partner organizations for so long that they simply are not getting adopted. SCCA will keep an animal until we find it a suitable forever home. SCCA never euthanizes for time or space!
Often times, animals come to us that have been abused or are in need of social skills to fit a forever home. Through our behavior and training programs (something not seen in most shelters), we are able to offer those special needs animals the opportunity to develop trust and a positive relationship with their human companions.
By rescuing from rescues, we provide these animals a true second chance for a forever home. We offer pet adoptions, humane education, pet behavior training and resources, and in a designated emergency, we are an emergency animal evacuation shelter for Coconino County.
Second Chance Center for Animals (SCCA) is located on 10 acres just 6 miles north of the Flagstaff Mall on U.S. highway 89. SCCA is an independently run non-profit 501(c)(3) organization operating on funding from individual gifts, fees for services and small grants. SCCA does not receive non-emergency Federal, State, or local funds nor does it receive on-going humane organization funding. Our mission is to provide opportunities for a quality life for homeless and unwanted companion animals and to provide resources to enhance the human-animal bond.
