We have a very special boy who needs a urgent foster home due to unforeseen circumstances. We rescued this beautiful boy Jacob when he was just about 6-7 months old after he was hit by a car and his front paw was degloved on a busy Brooklyn street. Jacob went through some months of staying at the vet and receiving critical medical care. Shortly after Jacob went into a wonderful foster home. He was quickly adopted by his foster family as they fell in love with him. He was a big goofy puppy, but he got along very well with all the resident dogs, 3 females and 1 male. The family went through some very difficult times, lost their home during Hurricane Sandy, and through it all they took Jacob back home as soon as they could. We received a frantic call that Jacob and their male Great Dane have started getting into bad fights over dominance. The situation has become urgent and the family is absolutely heartbroken, but for safety reasons we must remove Jacob and place him in a foster home to prevent anymore dangerous fights between the two males. Jacob is a absolute love-bug. He is about 3.5 years old now good with kids, he does wonderful with all the female dogs in the home, and has never had a problem before with other dogs. His family is absolutely heartbroken. Please help us by sharing Jacobs story and photos. He is a stunning boy, so friendly and loving. Go to www.nycsecondchancerescue.org to fill out an application.

About Second Chance Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small, individual, private rescue group dedicated to giving unwanted dogs and cats a second chance. Most of the animals we rescue are strays and or owner surrenders to high kill city shelters. Many of them have been pulled off “death row”. We are very passionate about what we do, we love and care for these animals unconditionally. Our goal is to place our homeless rescues in permanent loving homes as their former owners have already abandoned them at least once before.

Adoption process includes adoption application, phone interview and home visit. Vet references are checked!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a physical shelter, we place our rescues in foster homes or boarding facilities where they are socialized and nurtured back to health before we place them in their forever home. If you are interested in adopting a friend, kindly look at our available pet on this site.
