About Our Shelter:

We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization working specifically with our local shelter to prevent the euthanasia of adoptable dogs. Before Second Chance started taking care of the dogs at the shelter, it was a "fill and kill" facility. Today it is "fill and adopt." We do 'hands on' with the dogs two times a day, behavior test, and work very hard to match up dog to person/family. All our work is volunteer. The shelter is under the jurisdiction of the local police department.

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.
