About Our Rescue Group:

Second Chance Dog Rescue's mission is to give dogs that have found themselves homeless a second chance at finding a loving forever home. The founders take care of everything involved in the rescue of dogs including but not limited to: the initial intake of the dog, grooming, feeding, training, vet visits, home checks and all the administrative functions. Second Chance Dog Rescue prefers to take dogs that are at the local shelters and have a greater chance of being euthanized.

Come Meet our Pets:

We do not have a shelter. These dogs stay in our home. We would be happy to make arrangements for you and your family to meet a dog. Please email us to make arrangements to view one of the dogs available for adoption.

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption fees are as follows: $285.00 unless otherwise specified. This covers all shots and neuter/spay. All dogs are heartworm negative unless otherwise specified at the time of application. Please be aware that since we are a very small organization, we take pride in matching you with a lifetime companion. Most of the dogs have come to us very sick and scared so we make every effort to make your house, our rescues "last stop". Therefore, we would like the chance to get to know you and for your to get to know the companion you are considering adopting.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
