Second Chance Cats
Second Chance Portsmouth Cats has been re-homing cats for over 25 years and is run on an entirely voluntary basis, everyone giving their time freely. We rescue, rehabilitate and re-home cats in all areas as well as operating a Trap, Neuter and Return program with Ongoing Support for a number of feral colonies in the Portsmouth and surrounding area.
Although we never turn our back on any cat that needs our help we primarily try to concentrate on the most vulnerable and the most deprived. So often they are totally ignored, sometimes even other rescues turn a blind eye, as the medical and rehabilitative costs can be expensive. Finding the correct home for them is also extremely time consuming and difficult.
We are part of and work very closely with Second Chance Animal Rescue in Southampton which has been in operation for more than 40 years. They are first and foremost a rescue for dogs, all the kennels come with central heating and outside runs. Over the years, however, their care of cats has steadily increased so that today they now have two large purpose built and centrally heated catteries, one has an isolation ward and the other a large, secure outside recreation area.
