Who we are
Another Chance Sanctuary was established in 2009 by Dr.Laura Hirt, DVM. For many years Dr. Hirt has opened her home and practice to unwanted and disabled animals. Many have found homes however rising costs and a poor economy have forced a record number of pet owners to relinquish their animals. Many others are unable to afford treatments or surgeries for their special needs pets. It is the mission of Another Chance Sanctuary to provide housing and medical care for these animals. Whenever possible we try to place them with families that can permanently provide for their needs but unfortunately we are unable to place all our animals. In such cases we pledge to provide quality care for the remainder of their lives. This is a mission we cannot do on our own. We do not have a corporate benefactor, our sanctuary relies on donations from private citizens.

Volunteers Needed
Another Chance Sanctuary is looking for volunteers to help in many ways. If you have a couple of hours to spare, we need help feeding, cleaning, scooping (litter boxes/yard) and caring for the animals. We also need help planning, organizing and operating various fundraising events throughout the year. If you can sew, craft or bake items for fundraising events that would be wonderful too! Perhaps you are a handy man/woman - we could use your help as well. Please call (419) 307-1559 for more information.

Fostering a dog or cat
We have many animals at the Sanctuary that are available to be fostered (given a temporary home until we find it a permanent home). If you would like more information on fostering or would like to apply to be a foster mom or dad please contact us.

Spay/neuter your pet
If everyone in the community spayed and neutered their pets we would see a decrease in the number of animals coming into the Sanctuary each year. Although we no longer carry out spay/neuter surgery, if you or someone you know needs information on low cost spay and neuter options please give us a call and we will be happy to talk to you about those options.

Please Donate to Help the Dogs
We need towels, blankets, hard and soft dog food, basic cleaning supplies and dog beds. We also have an Amazon Wishlist. See our Donation Page for other items we can use. You can also donate to our Spay/Neuter Fund. For more information about how you can donate, see our Donation Page. On behalf of the dogs thank you.

No Squeeky Toys Please
Toys that make a noise when you squeeze them can encourage some dogs to be aggressive towards young children because they squeek too. The device that makes the noise is usually small and can be harmful if swallowed. Some toys of this type contain a small battery which is poisonous if the dog eats it. The best toys are tuggers, tennis balls and hard chew toys that cannot be ripped apart.

Visiting Another Chance Sanctuary
Please phone us on 419-307-1559 to check that the dog you want to visit is still available.
