Welcome to Second Chance Orphanage!! We're so glad that you could stop by for a visit. Our Kids have all had failed first adoptions, and are looking for new parents to love them. At Second Chance, they are fed, bathed, given new clothes if needed, a new name and a place to sleep and play until a new mom or dad comes for them.

The Kids that need surgery are taken to our hospital ward where they have their "owies" all taken care of . When they are adopted, they carry with them the Second Chance adoption certificate, and if they spent time in the hospital ward, they also leave with their dated medical record. If their "boo-boos" are permanent (ink marks, scars, etc.) this is also listed on their medical record. We at Second Chance feel that just because a Kid has some permanent mark on them, it in no way hinders their ability to give lots of love and comfort.

If you see someone you'd like to "meet", just send us a note, and we'll be happy to send you a picture. Our adoption fees are reasonable and range in price from $8 to $20. Won't you give one of our orphans a new home and a second chance??

We support our  troops!  ...And we'll give a special discount to military families.
