Second Chance Companions

We are an all-volunteer organization, started in 1993 dedicated to helping animals in SW Washington and the Portland Metro area. We have a small number of foster homes that take in dogs/cats (and sometimes other small animals) and no central facility, but we also work as a referral service for private owners who are looking for homes for their pets (we do the screening for them and also provide education to try to encourage them to keep their pets, when possible). We have a low-cost spay/neuter program for the public to try to try to curb pet overpopulation. We also work with our local Meals on Wheels program to provide pet food to Meals on Wheels recipients, individuals in assisted living and senior facilities, and area food banks. When we have the funds, we also provide emergency medical assistance to individuals.

Meet Archie (special needs)

I am a special boy along with my sister with special needs. It was discovered that our thyroid levels were not normal, therefore stunting our growth. At first our foster mom thought we were Munchkin kittens due to our size and short legs, but now that we are on thyroid meds, we are growing and starting to look more normal. We will most likely be on meds the rest of our lives and will need levels checked periodically. I am so affectionate and love to lay on my foster mom's lap. I am very loving and love to play with my sister alice. I will be neutered, microchiped, dewormed, vaccinated, and tested negative for feline leukemia and aids. Since we have some special needs, we will need a special person to adopt us. If you're interested please go to and fill out an application.
