About Our Rescue Group:

Second Chance Dog Rescue was formed to fulfill a desperate need in the community to --Rescue, Rehabilitate & Re-home-- homeless dogs from families who can no longer take care of their animals due to financial distress, and from over-crowded local shelters.

Our program is based on foster care, and all rescued dogs spend their first days at a loving foster home where they receive personalized care. As part of our program, we ensure that all dogs have their shots, are spayed or neutered, and have been re-socialized by their foster family. In addition, Second Chance Dog Rescue provides support for potential new owners and monitors progress for both new pet parents and their adopted dogs. This helps guarantee that our dogs go to good, loving homes.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our foster parents schedule one on one meetings with potential owners and provide a personalized adoption experience.

Our Adoption Process:

We require a foster questionnaire to be completed before a scheduled meeting. Then, if interested in our dog, a foster to adopt contract is completed with a two week trial period. An adoption fee is required. After the two week foster period, we conduct a home visit and complete the adoption contract.

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.
