Our Mission

Second Chances Animal Rescue of Pontotoc is dedicated to saving the homeless pets of Pontotoc County Mississippi and the surrounding area. All donations go towards saving lives of the helpless animals of Pontotoc County and the surrounding areas. Our goal is to provide a safe, comfortable, welcoming environment for animals until adoption, promote spay and neuter and educate the community on animal wellness.

Second Chances Animal Rescue is its own organization. We are separate from other animal shelters and rescues, including those that also have "Second Chances" in their name. We are not part of an umbrella organization such as the ASPCA or the Humane Society of the United States. We do actively collaborate with other local shelters and rescues to promote animal welfare.

Adoption Policy

All of Second Chances Animal Rescue's dogs & puppies are kept in private foster homes in Mississippi. Our dogs are NEVER in a facility. Our dogs are vaccinated and introduced to other dogs, cats, children, as well as temperament tested. We do not post any animals with any type of aggression or issues without listing the issues.

Adoption fees are posted on each listing. Our regular adoption fee $450. We have a reduced adoption fee of $350 for our senior dogs.

You may email us at with any questions.
