Meet our gentle pittie girl Gidget!  Gidget is a 60 lb, 5-6  year old pit bull.  Gidget came from a high kill shelter up in LA County.  She is a very friendly and loving girl that was lucky to get out since we discovered a large mammary mass that needed removal. It was discovered early enough that  the vet was able to remove the cancerous mass in its entirety.  Gidget also got a dental and has a beautiful, fresh clean smile to go along with her fresh start at life.

She's a very versatile girl. If you want a jogging partner or a couch potato to watch a movie with, Gidget is your girl. She's 50 lbs of love and affection toward her people. She'll go for a walk or a run! Still learning leash manners and doing great! Fetch is her favorite game. Tearing apart other toys is another thing she likes to do, so make sure the toys are durable and can withstand a lot of personal attention! She's housebroken, and knows how to sit and stay.

She's patient and waits for you to let her know she can start chowing down on dinner. She takes treats nicely and will sit for them too.

She gets along with other female dogs (we have 2 female dogs). But, she can be grumpy with male dogs. She does like to be the top dog so would probably work best if she were the only dog in the house.  She seems especially fond of men, but we don't recommend she be placed in a home with kids, small dogs or cats, as we just don't know how she'd be around them.

Gidget needs a strong alpha leader who is familiar with the breed and willing to put in extra time and additional training to make her adjustment into her new FURever home a smooth transition. 

 Gidget is spayed, microchipped and current on her vaccinations.  Her adoption fee is $250. 

All of our dogs are in private volunteer foster homes, and as such these individuals are most qualified to answer any questions regarding the dog.

We do not have a central shelter or kennel locations - you must make a private one-on-one meet and greet appointment with each individual dog at the foster family's convenience.  To protect our foster families' privacy, we must have an APPROVED adoption application on file before we release their contact information.

All of our dogs are fixed (spayed/neutered) and up to date on shots. We have a 2 week foster-to-adopt period to make sure the dog is a fit for your family. Adoption fees vary from dog-to-dog.  

Please note that an approved application DOES NOT guarantee that the dog will be placed with you. The final decision rests with our fosters as they know the dogs the best, and please be aware that there may be other applicants interested in the same dog. We continue accepting applications on a dog until the dog is with the new adoptive family in their home.

Thank you for visiting our dogs located at

About Second Chance Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Second Chance Dog Rescue was formed to fulfill a desperate need in the community to Rescue, Rehabilitate & Re-home homeless dogs from the over-crowded local shelters, and from families who can no longer take care of their dogs (on a case-by-case basis only).

Our program is based on foster care, and all rescued dogs spend their first days at a loving foster home where they receive personalized care. As part of our program, we ensure that all dogs are vaccinated, are spayed or neutered, and have been socialized by their foster family. In addition, Second Chance Dog Rescue provides support for potential new owners and monitors progress for both new pet parents and their adopted dogs. This helps guarantee that our dogs go to good, loving, forever homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Visit our website at for a list of upcoming Adoption Events. Additionally, our foster parents may schedule one on one meetings with potential owners and provide a personalized adoption experience.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an Adoption Questionnaire to be completed - whether online or in person - before meeting any of our dogs. Upon approval of the Questionnaire, a potential adopter will be required to complete an Adoption Contract and pay adoption fees. All of our adoptions start with the first 2 weeks as a 'trial' period, to ensure the adoption is a good fit. Adoption of a puppy may require a refundable training deposit, which will be refunded upon completion of training with a Certfied dog trainer, and submission of certificate of completion to our office.
