We are the Second Chance Pet Rescue of Grand Lake (AKA Humane Society of Grove and Grand Lake, Inc.), a 501 ( c ) 3 not-for-profit, private animal shelter, established in 1984 and governed by a Board of Directors. We are not affiliated with any national group and we do not receive any city, state or federal government funding.
Our goal is to provide a caring, safe, and loving environment for abused and abandoned dogs and cats in our community. We are a life-saving shelter that houses approximately 80 dogs and 75 cats and are usually at capacity.
The pet overpopulation problem in our community is an ongoing concern. Our low cost spay and neuter clinics are one way we try to address this problem. All of our animals are spayed or neutered shortly after they enter the shelter.

When you visit Second Chance Pet Rescue, one of the people you are likely to meet is Marissa Clark, Assistant Shelter Director. She has worked at the local animal rescue since September of 2018.
Originally from Portland, Oregon, Marissa spent her high school years in southwestern Missouri in the small town of Wheaton. After high school, she earned her CNA certification and was pursuing a nursing degree. Marissa career was temporarily diverted to a stay-at-home mom with three children - two boys and a girl. When she was ready to return to the working world, she had changed her mind about her career and decided to be a "nurse for animals".
After working as a supervisory assistant at Hampshire Dog Food Factory in Joplin, Missouri, Marissa met Lysa Boston, who was then Shelter Director for the Joplin Humane Society. She knew immediately that she had found something she loved to do. She became a Medical Technician at the Joplin Humane Society where she obtained training in Heartworm testing and vaccination protocol.
