Second Chance relies 100% on donations and fundraising. We do not get any funding from the government.

Every little bit helps! If you would like to make a financial donation, we promise we will put your donation to very good use. And because we’re a registered charity, you can claim 33% of your donation back from the Government at the end of the financial year! It’s really easy and we might even be able to help you if you need it (depending how busy our volunteers are!)

We have an easy to complete monthly donation form for those kind folk who want to support our work – you can find this form under the ‘Download Forms’ tab.  Please let us know if you need any help completing it.

We’re always happy to receive donations of cash, dog food, dog toys, leashes / collars etc, bedding / crates – or time! Please contact us if you can help in any way – we’d LOVE to hear from you. We’re on Facebook (search Second Chance Tasman), you can email us at


From all the dogs at Second Chance, thanks for your support!
