Urgent Foster Home Plea
It's that time of year where SCAA loses a lot of foster homes to repatriation or long summer holidays. Combined with the usual influx of new foster animals early in the year, it leaves us scrambling for foster care cover.
Can you help? Here for the summer? Here until the end of summer? The foster animals to move are healthy & happy and many are pet-friendly. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to help
Founded in 2005, Second Chance Animal Aid is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health and welfare of companion animals through education, outreach, advocacy, medical care, and the promotion of foster care as a healthy and cost-effective alternative to traditional shelters.
SCAA is proud that our operating procedures qualify us for Association status with RSPCA International. However, we do not receive funding as an Association and rely solely on donors and sponsors to provide our foster animals with nearly RMB15,000 (US$2,000) a month in generously discounted PAW vet care.
The Challenges and Rewards of Operating in Shanghai
Shanghai lacks a city shelter, SPCA or Humane Society. There are no animal protection laws or services to pick up or receive rescued animals. In Shanghai, if you rescue an animal, it is yours at least in the short term.
SCAA operates on a surrender basis: we accept fostering, medical care and adoption responsibility for the limited number of animals we can place in our foster homes. SCAA does not have a physical address and we do not act as a referral service connecting animal rescuers and adopters.
SCAA has helped over 900 rescued cats and dogs from the streets of Shanghai. We generally have 30 to 40 foster animals under our care, thanks to local and expat volunteer foster parents from all over the world. SCAA-adopted animals are now living in over 25 different countries.
Our humane education initiatives reach out to international schools, from kindergartens to high schools, and progressive local schools expanding their curriculum.
