Hi everyone Im Timbo. Im a 5 year old red nose male and i have been one lucky doggy. My family was moving and can no longer take me with them so they took me to the Kill Shelter in Brooklyn. Thank god for Facebook because they checked in there location and wrote their good byes to me ....thinking that someone was gonna come adopt me . But two days later i ended up on the Euthanization list - the complete opposite ! Second Chance Rescue saw the post, checked the shelter, came to my rescue and took me out of there the day i was being put to sleep. I was boarded for weeks until a foster home opened up and i really proved myself. I am being taught manners and everyone involved is so pleased with how fast I am learning. I love to be walked and ran. Im super chill in a home. I'm scared of the cat that i live with because he swats me in the face but my foster doesnt leave us alone together yet! I also like to sleep in on the weekends. I don't bark a lot even though i hear lots of noises in the apartment. All the dogs I've been properly introduced to I've been really nice to as well! OH and I'm housebroken ! So I'm looking for a calm owner who has strong leadership qualities so i can continue to be disciplined and show off all the manners I've learned thus far. Im currently fostered in a coop that doesnt allow dogs so I'm scared I'm gonna go back to boarding if my kind foster gets caught with me ! So if you can be my new home call 917 974 6666 or text my sponsor ! Or email for an application ! Come get me soon !

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.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption/Foster Application must be completed online via the link below.

Home visit is required along with Vet references. Our full list of fees have been listed on the adoption application. Our dogs come fully vetted and have to be spayed/neutered prior to adoption.
