President and Founder of SCF
SCF was officially founded in 2012 after many years of being funded by Sandi’s 2 small businesses. Approximately 20 years ago, it all started with a blind horse named Blaze and a crippled cow named Annie. These 2 bonded and became inseparable. Sandi put a bell on Annie’s neck so that Blaze could hear where she went. The cow led the horse to water and to graze. They remained friends until it was time to let Blaze go, due to old age. Sandi always thought that Blaze cared more for Annie until the day Blaze died and Annie just stood and seemed to look around for him. She did mourn for him and it showed that she truly cared. This was the beginning of Sandi’s passion for special needs animals and sharing with people that they really do matter. Based on a 70 acre family farm, Second Chance Farm has grown into a very successful non-profit that houses a lot of special animals.
Volunteering at SCF is very rewarding and does the heart good. Watching these animals "Redifine Normal" on a daily basis is so inspiring. It is an honor and privilege to be a part of the SCF family. Doodle On!
My two favorite things are animals and auctions. I get the best of both worlds by volunteering as the auctioneer at SCF. Getting to be Sandi’s friend is an added bonus.
Being a volunteer at SCF is truly amazing, not to mention rewarding and educational. The love I have for the animals is immeasurable. They truly adapt & overcome whaterver comes their way. The passion Sandi has for these animals is genuine. It is an honor for me to be a part of the SCF family.
I followed the farm on Facebook for a few years and eventually adopted my dog from them. I've seen so many amazing things done at the farm for all different kinds of animals. You can't help but want to be a part of that.
