We adopt out dogs, we do not take owner surrenders or strays. We only take dogs from partnering shelters when we have available space.

About Our Rescue Group:

Annabelle's Second Chance is a small private foster home based rescue located in Central Virginia to Central and Eastern North Carolina. We officially began our organized rescue efforts in the Summer of 1999 even though we have been unofficially rescuing homeless pets for our entire lives and been involved with the breed since the early 90s. Our rescue began with a quest to rescue and adopt out a wonderful pit bull named Annabelle who has become our mascot and namesake. Annabelle's Second Chance received its 501(c) 3 June 2005.

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.
