Second Chance for Animals, Inc. is a nonprofit volunteer group devoted to enhancing the lives, adoption rates, and experiences of the animals living in shelters. 
We currently assist the Franklin Township, NJ Animal Shelter.

about us here, To learn more about adopting a pet from the Franklin Township Animal Shelter, please visit their web page at

SCFA always need volunteers!  Due to cut-backs at the Township our help is needed more than ever.  We can always use folks in all areas of our group.
Call 732 748-SCFA (7232) and let us know you would like to help.  Be sure to leave a clear message and include how we can reach you. 
You must be 18 or older in order to work with the animals.

November is the month to honor our veterans
SCFA recognizes the service of  our veterans and active military people.  To thank them,  SCFA will reimburse the adoption fee to  any documented member of our military (active or veterans) if they adopt from our shelter during the month of November.  Please ask for details at the shelter when you come to visit the adoptable animals.

Franklin Township Animal Shelter Open House and Food Drive:
The Animal Shelter will be holding their annual open house and food drive on Saturday, November 29th from 12-6PM.  Light refreshments will be served and a special guest - SANTA - will be arriving at 1PM courtesy of the Elizabeth Avenue Fire Company.  Come out and meet Santa and all the wonderful animals available for adoption.  Learn about our shelter and SCFA.  Donations of cat, kitten and dog food are welcome and appreciated!
