Welcome to the Second Chance League

The Second Chance League is a group of Fairbanks mushers focused on finding permanent homes for sled dogs. SCL is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. We work with dogs exclusively from the municipal animal shelter in Fairbanks, evaluate them, foster them, and train them with our own dog teams. Many of these dogs have excellent bloodlines. Our goal is for the dogs to be successful. We strive to match the right dog to the right owner.


With more dogs entering our program each day, our medical cost (spay, neuter, microchip, medications, etc.) are rising. Your donation will help insure the future health and happiness of these eager to please dogs!
