This is Shiro he hasn't had the greatest first years of his life but we have stepped in to help change that. Shiro was brought into the shelter down South as a ... stray. He is a petite little boy at only 8 pounds, and is estimated to be 2-3 years old. Shiro sadly has a liver shunt, unfortunately he is one of the cases who is not a candidate for surgery. What this means for the long run is shiro will need to be on a strict diet for the rest of his life. This adorable little pocket pup would love to be a part of your family. Because of his lover shunt Shiro's life expectancy is unknown he could live 6 months, or 8 years. This all depends on how his body responds to the diet we set up for him. Please apply to foster or adopt this sweet boy, he deserves to live the rest of his known in a loving home. http://www.nycsecondchancerescue.org/app-form/

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.
