Second Chance Named 2022 Top-Nonprofit by GreatNonprofits Award Based on Community Recommendations

EAST BROOKFIELD, MA (November 10, 2022) — Second Chance Animal Services announced today it has been named a “2022 Top-Rated Nonprofit” by GreatNonprofits, the leading website for community recommendations of charities and nonprofits.

Second Chance serves pets in Massachusetts and beyond, helping over 40,000 pets a year.

“We are honored to be named a 2022 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” says Second Chance founder and CEO Sheryl Blancato.  “We are so grateful for the community’s support that makes our work possible, keeping pets in their homes with the people they love through our four Community Veterinary Hospitals and helping homeless pets get the care they need to find their new homes.”

The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is based on the rating and number of reviews that Second Chance received from volunteers, donors and aid recipients. The reviews share loving stories of pets adopted from and cared for by the nonprofit. “Got my dog from them years ago, and still use (them) for his vet care and he is the best thing that ever happened to me.”

Second Chance is a great example of a nonprofit making a real difference in their community,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “Their award is well-deserved recognition not only of their work, but the tremendous support they receive, as shown by the many outstanding reviews they have received from people who have direct experience working with Second Chance.”

GreatNonprofits is the largest donation website for nonprofits and where people share stories about their personal experiences on more than 1.6 million charities and nonprofits. The GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Awards are the only awards for nonprofits determined by those who have direct experience with the charities – as donors, volunteers, and recipients of aid.
