Keep Cats for Life
The keep cats for life goal is to provide resources to keep cats and kittens in their homes for life and out of the shelter including community cats. We have a number of resources depending on your situation.
& Surrender Prevention
While our goal is to get as many pets into homes as possible, we want to keep them there for the remainder of the pets’ lives. Because of this, we have resources to help cat guardians resolve the most common behavior and medical issues. Our surrender prevention counselors also work with the Jacksonville Humane Society. They are open to advise you on any matter. We can meet you in-person to discuss and observe your cat’s problem behavior. We have several volunteers who are knowledgeable about common cat behavior issues. We offer this service free of charge. We have been very success with making changes in your home which modifies your cat’s behavior and becomes the same cat you fell in love with as a kitten!
If anything happened to you, what would happen to me?
Thousands of companion animals are surrendered to animal shelters and euthanized every year when their pet owners die or become too ill to care for them. Have you made arrangements to ensure the lifetime care of your pets?
2nd Chance 4 Pets is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 nonprofit organization providing free resources to help pet owners plan for the possibility that their pets might outlive them. For more information, please visit them at
Bringing Low Cost Spay/Neuter Resources to Underserved Neighborhoods
88% of pets in the United States living in underserved communities are not spayed or neutered. 20 MILLION pets live in poverty with their families in the United States. These are disheartening statistics and are occurring not because they are unloved, but because these families lack financial resources or veterinary care is nonexistent. Many loving pet owners in the United States lack financial resources for and access to basic pet care and spay/neuter services. Details for our first free spay and neuter pop-up clinic will be announced with date and location. We are working with committed partners in the underserved counties nearby. Once date and location is announced, your donation for this cause will be used to connect people and pets to veterinary services and keep them living happy, healthy lives together for life.
