Second Chance Animal Rescue Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation that relies heavily on donations to continue our lifesaving work in the community.

Cats and dogs that find themselves without a home deserve a second chance and we are here to ensure that they get one. We are an Animal Shelter in Melbourne committed to facilitating the successful matching of families with their new best friend, making sure that they become a valued addition to their lives, for the rest of their lives.

The Pet Rescuers

Last year, Second Chance Animal Rescue Inc. was the focus of a ten-part documentary series on Channel 9 called The Pet Rescuers. We are incredibly excited to announce that Channel 9 have just renewed The Pet Rescuers for a second season! We hope you will join us once more for another fascinating insight into how we rescue, rehabilitate and rehome homeless animals! For now, check out the first official sneak peek of all the action being filmed behind the scenes here at SCAR and see our team in action – saving lives and giving hope to pets and their owners. And don’t forget to catch up on series one by clicking below!
