Meet Star, one of the newest residents at the Second Chance Pet Rescue of Grand Lake.

Star is approximately 1 year old. She is a lab/border mix and was returned to the shelter. She is house trained and does well on a leash. 

Volunteers are needed to help care for animals like Star and others at the Second Chance Pet Rescue.

 A volunteer's time is one of the most cherished gifts that can be given to Second Chance Pet Rescue of Grand Lake.

Volunteers are essential to everything that is done at our life-saving animal rescue organization and shelter.

Volunteers are the heart of our rescue and a key reason why Second Chance Pet Rescue is able to save so many homeless pets. Volunteers are needed today who can make a difference in the lives of our rescued pets.

Whatever your availability might be, there is an opportunity that can fit your schedule and interests. Here are just a few of the benefits of volunteering:

1. Be a part of the solution to help homeless animals. Join a network of people working to make a caring and safe environment for homeless cats and dogs.

2. Get warm fuzzies! You will never find a more grateful and accepting companion than a homeless cat or dog that you've comforted.

3. Keep good company. Make lots of new friends - and not just the four-legged kind. Working side by side with people who share similar interests can forge life-long friendships.

4. Enjoy a wagging tail, a purr, and a smile! Didn't someone once say that the best things in life are free?
