About Our Rescue Group:Dogs 2nd Chance is a 501[c]3 non-profit dog foster group that was founded in the fall of 2007. We are a group of VOLUNTEERS that saw the need to help medium and large mixed breed dogs find permanent loving homes. We have evolved to help any size dogs. We are NOT a shelter. We receive no government funding and depend on our minimal adoption fees, donations and our own bank accounts.
All of our dogs are fostered in our homes and become a temporary active member of our family. Fostering helps to socialize the dogs, helping them adjust to life in a family setting. The majority of our dogs were abandoned, dumped or found running stray. We attempt to reunite lost dogs with their owners by placing ads in local newspapers and online classified ads. Additionally, we rescue dogs from high kill shelters as space allows. We are caring for the castaways by saving one dog at a time.

Our Adoption Process:.The adoption process includes filling out an Adoption Application and signing an Adoption Agreement. We offer local trial adoptions. We bring the dog to your home to see how it fits in your environment. If we and you feel comfortable, we let the dog stay with you for a week as an adjustment period. After that time, if everyone is in agreement, we then finalize the adoption.
Although we do not require [but prefer] the dogs to be kept inside, we do require a safe area for outside play. These requirements help us to find the the best home possible for our dogs, making sure they do not return to the streets or shelters. We appreciate your understanding that our best interests is for our dogs.
Our adoption fee begins at $150.00, depending on medical expenses and covers a portion of our expenses incurred while caring for castaways.
Out of state adoptions are welcomed with the adopters covering transportation costs through our sister rescues listed below.
All dogs are up to date on vaccines, have been heartworm tested and spayed/neutered. All dogs are on monthly heartworm and flea preventative
