You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Please contact Lynn ( for more information about this pet.
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!


6/13/2016  Zoey has been returned to us after 2 years.  Why?  because the owner says she is aggressive and a biter and has 'mistakes' in the house.  OMG!!  She has been back with me for a week now and she SO is not aggressive!  She is a little love bug!!  People disappoint me all the time making it about the dog has issues when they tire of them and don't want them anymore.  It makes my heart so sad :(  That's ok Zoey we will make sure your next adopter is a Yorkie specialist and knows how Yorkies play and communicate.  Love you little girl!

My name is Zoey.  I only have a name now because a wonderful supporter of 2nd Chance named me.  My owner would not have named me because he was an Amish Breeder and I was just an 'oven' or 'cash cow' to him :(   He left me in labor way to long!  It was scary and I couldn't push my puppies out :(   I have no clue how many times I have been pregnant but it was a lot!  When I finally was fearing I would die he took me to the vet.  She took one look at me and immediatly rushed me into the operating room and did an emergency c section.  My insides were a mess and she begged my owner to allow her to take out my uterus since it was damaged but he refused.  He said 'I'll get 5 or 6 more litters out of her.  Her puppies bring me $1,000 a piece'  If people would stop buying puppies mean men like him would stop breeding them and hurting mommies like me :(((   PLEASE PLEASE help pass the word that for every cute little puppy on an amish farm there is a mommy and daddy in a crate that never gets love, grooming or learns how to play and have fun!!!!
My first puppy died.  My owner took home my other 3 puppies and left me at the hospital for the night.  I didn't mind I had a soft bed for the first time in my life and gentle hands that did something they called 'petting' it felt really good!!!!
My owner came the next day and one of my other puppies had died so he took the last 2 of my pups and 'put them on another bitch' he said.  He then picked me up and took me home :(  I didn't feel very well and he didn't care he just stuck me back in the pen.  I really thought I would die there!  2 days later he picked me up but by then I didn't care, I was ready to go, dying couldn't be worse than this :(   He took me to the nice hospital again and the vet was really upset.  She talked with another vet and I heard them talking about whether it would be best to just 'euthanize' me.  I didn't know what that meant but they didn't seem happy.   They decided to operate again.  When they opened my little belly again they realized my uterus had ruptured and my insides were a mess!  They took my uterus and flushed out my insides 4 or 5 times then they stitched me up and prayed that I would still be there in the morning when they came in.  I was and they gave me meds and really good food and I started to feel much better.  I so didn't want to go back to my crate at the mean mans place :(
My owner came in and when he heard I couldn't have anymore pups he was more than happy to give me to the vet and not have to pay for my 2nd surgery.  He gave them a check for the emergency c section and it bounced :(  Again if people wouldn't buy from breeders they would stop using us to make $$$$ :(
The vet called 2nd Chance and now I have my own soft bed every night.  I get held A LOT.  I like the other really small dogs in the house.  I'm not very fond of the bigger ones.  I now know what grass is and its fun!   I give little kisses to my foster mommy every once in awhile not a lot yet because I'm still scared but I'm getting there and I'm working on going potty outside instead of in the house :)
My foster mommy says NO kids and NO big dogs.  I would like someone that will give me lots and love and a safe place to call home!

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!

About 2nd Chance 4 Life Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

2nd Chance 4 Life Rescue is a foster network. Our goal is to find our precious little ones their "forever families" where they will live out the rest of their lives. Your dog is a part of your family and should be treated as such. You don't give away your children and neither should your loyal pet be dispensable!
All our dogs must be altered before adoption. Spay/Neuter is the only way to stop the senseless overpopulation we have now. Our hope is one day with education we will live in a society where shelters are not a necessity and no animal will die just for lack of space!
