Behold beautiful Jackie!!!!! This smokey beauty is 8-9+ years old. She's amazing but she has a sad story. Jackie is heart worm positive and was brought to us in heart failure secondary to Heart worms :( It takes a while to get to this point. Obviously she received NO vet care before we found her. No one cared enough about her to give her the minimal care needed. Now that she is safe, she is on heart meds and is being treated for those horrible heart worms. Get out gross worms! Jackie ain't got time for that!
 
We need a calmer home for her to recuperate at. That most likely means no other dogs or VERY calm ones to keep her heart rate as low as possible. She does not bark, she is housebroken, and she is the most amazing dog! She does great with everyone and she LOOOOVVVVEEEESSSSS kids! She has a 10 and 13 year old at her foster home.
 
We know that most people want a young pup, but we have a secret...the older ones are calmer and often far less work. They are content to lay their leads on a soft bed and get lots of love. I mean, what sounds better on a cold snowy night than to snuggle in a warm home with a grateful calm girl like Jackie?
 
Thanksgiving is coming and she really wants something to give thanks for.

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.
