You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.
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!
Ralph was on the kill list at ACCT Philadelphia. He was super young and emaciated. When we brought him here the vet thought he had cancer and gave him 6 months to live :( A year later with more testing it was found that it was not cancer as first thought but severe inflamatory bowel disease. After a year Ralph is healthy and wants to play like any bully breed would and his 'hospice foster' cannot walk him as she is a very small woman :(
Ralph is at a training facility. The cost to the rescue $2000. The benefit to Ralph is his life! He is doing phenomenal and the trainer adores him! The trainer will choose his new owner when applications come in but he says Ralph is WONDERFUL :)Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.
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!
