  • ID#: 10268201-11309

My name is Basil and my foster mom says I am the “Bomb.”  She says I am  the sweetest, smartest, best boy she’s fostered.  I remind her of a lab personality and temperament but I’m just a miniature version.  I attach very quickly and always keep my “people” in sight. She thinks I would do best as a second dog or a family where my “people” are home.  I don’t like to be left alone as I am a very social guy.  I love walks and walk very nicely on my leash.  I have a doggy door to go outside and have not had any accidents as I have now been given free roam downstairs like my other dog siblings.  She is really impressed with me and proud of how quick I catch onto things. I love kids too, sometimes I jump on them when I get excited but I am trying to learn sit.    I’m still a puppy so may get into things here and there, but I try to be a good boy.  If you want someone who will be a loyal, true companion come meet me!!!

Adopter for Basil must reside in the immediate Houston/Galveston area and be at least 25 years old.  A home visit may be required prior to this dog going to any home.  

Adoption Fee for Basil is $175.

About Second Chance Pets

About Our Rescue Group...

Second Chance Pets (SCP) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 animal welfare organization dedicated to providing unwanted pets a second chance through foster care and pet adoption programs, educating the public about proper care for their own animals and about animal welfare issues, and working with the public, other rescue groups, and public officials to help resolve the problem of animal overpopulation.

Come Meet Our Pets...

SCP does not have a shelter or an office location. The rescued pets, volunteers, fosters, and adopters who comprise SCP come from all over the Galveston Bay area (mainly north Galveston and south Harris counties). Most animals are fostered and loved in volunteer homes until a permanent home is found.

SCP has cats and dogs available for adoption every Saturday at the Petco store at Bay Area Boulevard and Space Center Boulevard. A few cats may be seen during the week at the Petco location

Our Adoption Process...

Potential adopters must complete applications so that volunteers can help adopters identify cats and dogs that will fit best in their homes. SCP volunteers review the applications and discuss pet care responsibilities with potential adopters. The adoption donation typically starts at $95 for cats and $125 for dogs.

SCP tries to ensure that all pets are healthy at the time of adoption. All are examined by veterinarians when they enter the program. All are vaccinated, spayed, neutered, de-wormed, tested/treated for parasites and disease (such as heartworms, fleas, leukemia and FIV) as needed. Cats are vaccinated for FVRCP-C and FeLV. Dogs are vaccinated for DHLPP and Corona virus. Animals are kept in foster homes when available to minimize exposure to disease and to help them be well-adjusted. It is the policy of SCP that no cat or dog may be sent to a permanent home before it is fully vetted, including spay or neuter. All of our rescued animals are microchipped.
