New England 2nd Chance Animal Rescue is a non-profit, low-kill (As much as we strive for a no-kill motto some animals by the time they reach us are to sick and suffering that the only humane thing to do is to euthanize them). We are a volunteer animal rescue organization serving the greater New England area, dedicated to caring for pets through adoptions, community awareness, fostering and caring for companion animals until loving homes can be found. We are dedicated to rescuing dogs left homeless for whatever reason – animals in public shelters where they are at high risk of euthanasia due to pet overpopulation, pets given up by their owners because of difficult circumstances, and those in danger of abuse or neglect. Our organization is now largely run by folks who generously volunteer their time, homes and hearts in order to help. Through our Foster Care program, animals have a safe, healthy "place to be" until loving forever homes can be found for them.
