EAST BROOKFIELD — Second Chance Animal Services has been named a 2023 Top-Rated Nonprofit by GreatNonprofits, a leading website for community recommendations of charities and nonprofits. Second Chance offers programs and services that help more than 44,000 pets a year to live better lives.
“We are honored to be named a 2023 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” Chief Development Officer Lindsay Doray said. “We are proud of our accomplishments this year. The importance of our work has never been more pronounced as the economy continues to take a toll on pets in our communities. At our vet hospitals, more pet owners are relying on subsidized rates than ever before to care for their cherished companions. Meanwhile, our shelter is taking in local surrenders at a rate not seen in over a decade.”
The Top-Rated Nonprofit award is based on the rating and number of reviews that Second Chance received from volunteers, donors, and aid recipients. In one review, a volunteer shared that “I have been a volunteer with Second Chance for the past couple of years and continue to be impressed with how hard they work to not only help and care for the animals they rescue, but also the resources they give to animal owners in the communities they serve, from veterinary services to vaccine clinics, pet grooming, food banks, and more. They truly are an impressive organization.”
Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, added that “Second Chance is a great example of a nonprofit making a real difference in their community. Their award is well-deserved recognition not only of their work, but of the tremendous support they receive, as shown by the many outstanding reviews they have received from people who have direct experience working with Second Chance.”
