Phoebe came from a hoarding situation. There were more than 40 dogs taken from a trailer house. When she came to us she had given birth to 4 healthy sweet babies. She is very shy but will bond and then she becomes a cuddle bug. She gets along with cats and dogs. She hasn't been tested much around young children as she tends to avoid them.

What we know about her former home. It was a trailer that was filled with dogs and yet you never heard one bark upon approach. Every time I saw the owner she was carrying a fly-swatter which she would pop on the side of the trailer upon entering. Phoebe is afraid of fly swatters so I SUSPECT the side of the trailer wasn't the only thing popped with the fly swatter. We suspect the owner was breeding the dogs for sale. We also suspect they were either crated or placed in a play pen 24 hours a day. She will head to her crate over the slightest thing, using it as the safe haven we meant for it be.

She has had very little loving care prior to foster care. Her nails were extremely long. She deserves a loving home with a patient pet parent who will work with her to help her with her anxiety.

All foster pets have seen a vet. Dog's adoption fee includes up-to-date shots, microchip ID implant, free rabies vaccine, and free mandatory spay/neuter. All dogs live in foster homes during the week like regular pets and work on socialization and manners. Many are from local animal controls so their housetraining history is unknown; puppies are all working on housetraining. Come meet our adoptable dogs during our adoption events each Saturday and Sunday afternoon at Lubbock Petsmart on Slide Road. Not every pet comes to every adoption event, so make sure and call or email if you want to meet a specific pet. Many pets are not yet listed on

About Second Chance Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small rescue group located in Snyder, TX. All of our pets are kept in private homes by private fosters. We attend adoption events in Lubbock, TX on a regular basis and go to Abilene, TX on occasion. We also arrange for meet and greets here in Snyder when necessary. The rescue started in September of 2012 with rescuing one dog, and we quickly expanded our program. In the first 5 months of 2013 we have rescued 220+ dogs and about 15 cats. We are always looking for new fosters, volunteers and can always use donations. For every dog we can save there are 10X more that we can't. Our primary focus is on dogs, but we do help with kittens/cats when we can.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are always available for private meetings in Snyder. We try to attend adoption events in Lubbock at the Petsmart on Slide Road at least twice a month ~ more when we have the volunteers to handle the event. We can arrange for transport to most places within 4 hours of Snyder and sometimes further. It never hurts to ask ~ we might have someone going your way.

Our Adoption Process...

All dogs and cats require an adoption application. All dogs and cats we pull from shelters are spayed/neutered before being adopted (without exception). Our adoption fee is $150 to cover basic vetting and rescue fees, unforseen vetting is absorbed by us. We try to return inquiries within 24 hours (Holidays may cause delays).
