Second Chance Information
Managed by the DeLand Police Department, the City of DeLand’s Second Chance Program is designed to house abandoned or lost domestic animals in a safe and secure holding area for a three day period. The holding period allows pet owners an opportunity to reclaim their pets by contacting the police department’s Animal Control Officer, and equally important, the three day period is also used to notify numerous animal advocacy groups from around the state about the adoptable animals that are available through the program. The advocacy groups are committed to finding “forever homes” for the animals and their partnership with the City is core to the program’s success. Prior to the program’s initial start, all animals captured by the Animal Control Officer would be taken directly to a local humane society. The Second Chance Program creates an opportunity for owners to be reunited with their pet and for adoptable animals to find good homes.

Anyone wanting to adopt an animal is encouraged to contact any one of the listed animal advocacy groups that is associated with the program. A representative will work with you and arrange the adoption. For a Listing of available Animals Click Here

The Second Chance program is not designed to be a working humane society nor is it a full time shelter. Because it’s a temporary holding facility, DeLand residents who choose to give up an animal need to contact one of the area shelters to make the necessary arrangements.
