Can I Do Court Ordered Community Service at Second Chance?

Second Chance Pet Rescue is happy to work with members in our community who need to complete Court Ordered Community Service (CS). CS workers offer support to animal caregivers and assist with sanitation, housekeeping, yardwork, and operational needs.

To begin your community service, please visit the shelter and bring court documentation which should include charges, hours needed, and the date you need to complete hours. Wear long pants, close-toed shoes, and clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.

**We cannot accommodate individuals with felony charges, charges related to sexual misconduct, assault, theft, or animal-related offenses. We only accept Court Ordered Community Service for individuals 18 years old or older; if you are between 16-18 you may perform community service with the accompaniment of a parent or guardian.
