About Us

Melissa’s Second Chances is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue in Shawnee, KS. We find homes and safe refuge for animals in need of a second chance to be a beloved family pet.

On January 1, 2019, we rescued our first animal – a dog named George Jetson. Since then, we’ve worked our tails off to give as many animals as possible their Second Chance!
