Second Chance Rescue & Placement

(505) 316-2281

Do you have an extra room or bathroom, or space for a playpen cage to foster a cat or litter of kittens? Even if you travel or only live in Santa Fe part time, you can help! 


Volunteer Coordinator: Review volunteer applications to determine the best fit. Communicate with volunteer schedulers at Petco, Santa Fe Cats, Teca Tu and for special events.

Foster Home Coordinator: Follow up with approved foster homes to assign them a cat [or cats] to care for.  Serve as the contact person when food or supplies are needed to vet care is required.

Adoption Advisor: Help meet with approved adopters to introduce them to our available cats at Petco. Complete adoption paperwork and send the cat(s) to their furever home.

Application Review Committee: Work remotely and help us call references for adoption, volunteer and foster applications.

Bookkeeper: Team up with our Treasurer to help with bookkeeping. The ideal person would need to be proficient in QuickBooks online. This work can also be done remotely

Kitty Caregivers:  Feed and care for our shelter cats at Petco or at Santa Fe Cats. A commitment of 2-3 hours is required per shift.

Fostering: Help out during kitten season, care for a special needs cat, or provide a senior kitty a loving home to spend its days.

Transport: Help with vet runs, supply pickups and general transportation needs.

Fundraising: Help us staff and pull together fundraising events. We are open to new ideas


Can you spare 2-3 one day a week to care for the cats at our Adoption Center inside Petco?  Are you able to transport cats to/from fosters homes or vets?  Do you have organizational/administrative/computer skills and would like to help from home?
