According to Cynthia Seitz, a director with Dryden’s Second Chance Pet Network, the organisation now takes in dogs and cats from an expanded region including 50 First Nation reserves, Northern Manitoba, and Nunavut
With a building situated at 270 Wilson Road, Second Chance Pet Network provides a haven for surrendered and abandoned animals, pending their adoption.
SCPN began with a vision to help control the pet population in Dryden and surrounding area through spaying and neutering and to have all pets adopted into loving homes forever.
Spaying and neutering make a big difference.  Just one unaltered female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in only six years. In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce an incredible 370,000 kittens.
The Wilson Road facility also has an area for feral cats and an outdoor area where dogs can run. The fencing for the run area was provided through funds from the Dryden Rotary Charity Foundation.
SCPN raises much of its money through Second Chance Treasures on King Street where it sells used items that are donated to them. The net proceeds are used to support the dogs and cats.
Second Chance Treasures recycle many items such as used electronics such as cell phones, desk phones, computers, answering machines, computers, and TV'. They even take liquor bottles if you bring them out to the facility on Wilson Road.
