You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.
All of our dogs are in foster homes and we have no paid staff. If you have questions concerning a specific dog, PLEASE fill out an application and the foster parent will be in touch. We will not arrange any home visits with any of our dogs until your application is processed. Please understand our foster parents are precious to our 2nd Chance family; without them we cannot function, so we do our best to not burden them with multiple appointments. Our foster parents will choose their top 3 applications and arrange home visits with these applicants. The adopter will be chosen at that time. The process can take anywhere from a week to a month. We want to make sure our little furry ones are placed in their "forever home" and never have to go through a rehoming again!
Hey, you guys! It's me-- Biscuit! <3
Let me tell you a little bit about me. Well, I was down at a high kill shelter in Philadelphia called ACCT, when my now foster parents got an email stating that I had been hit by a car, was in desperate need of medical treatment, and I would be killed by the shelter since the Thanksgiving holiday was rapidly approaching. A picture of me was attached to that e-mail. My foster mom emailed my foster dad and said, 'What do you think?' His response? 'Let's save him.'
They got me the next day, after I had been checked out by 2nd Chance 4 Life's amazing vet, Dr. Clements, and I was so excited, because I didn't have to have surgery! I was ordered to have 6 weeks of crate rest, because my hip was hurt when the car hit me. Fast forward six weeks, plus another week to recover from my neuter surgery, and here we are! Now, I love to run and play, but I will need to still take it relatively easily (no marathon training for this guy!).
I am the biggest cuddle bug in the world, I am potty trained, and I am super well behaved. I do pretty darn well on a leash, and I LOVE walks. Because of my prevous accident, I am hard of hearing, and I'm easily startled. As a result, I'm a little afraid of other dogs. So, I will need to be the only dog in your life for now. TRUST ME- I'll more than make up for it. I will stare up at you while we cuddle, give kisses, and share my endless love with you. Plus, my foster parents say I'm really funny. They are the best!
So, what do you say? Do you think I might be the perfect match for you? YES?! Well, what are you waiting for? Submit an application for me -- I'm so ready for my forever home!
P.S. Wondering how I got my name? Since I was my foster parents' Thanksgiving miracle, they named me after their FAVORITE Thanksgiving side dish-- Biscuits. ;)Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.
Please understand we do not adopt out to families with children under the age of 5. We do not adopt to renters. Some dogs will have fence requirements while others may not.
A dog is a lifetime commitment. The dogs in our system find themselves there, for the most part, because their humans did not have the same loyalty to them as they did to their owners :( We do not take the adoption process lightly, and will do everything in our power to make sure the dog is placed correctly the first time around for your sake and theirs. Thank you for choosing to adopt not shop!
