What is a second chance animal shelter (Ascas)?

Proceed with caution:  Our website is still under construction.  We are adding information weekly.

​It is a Low Kill/No Kill Shelter and we do not euthanize animals to make room for additional animals. 
The shelter is not able to accept visibly sick or injured animals and we cannot pick up stray animals. 
The shelter cannot accept feral or wild animals. We define "feral" as cats and dogs that cannot be held without trying  to scratch, bite or get away. 


​We are a 501(c)3 non profit, shelter. Our existence depends solely on donations and contributions by members and friends, and proceeds from sales at A Second Chance Thrift Store, located at 537 S. Mill Street, Manning, SC.  Their phone number for donations and information is (803) 433-2323.
