We received these heartbreaking photos of an emaciated boxer name Zeal. Zeal was found while he was wondering around scavenging for food in a rural area of Nort ... h Carolina right before the hurricane hit. The shelter workers were horrified, as you could count every single rib, and bone in his skeletal body. Why would someone do this to a sweet boy? As word of the hurricane touching down, the shelter knew they would have a huge problem
On their hands. They begged us to save Zeal, and we couldn't turn our backs on this very needy boy.

Zeal arrived late last night on a plane right from the storm ravaged area. Our amazing volunteers we're waiting for him with open arms. We can't believe how skinny he is, we also can't believe how sweet he is. Zeal needed us, and we are here for him. He will never be hurt or hungry again. Zeal needs a home, or a foster right now, please help us to find this amazing dog an equally amazing place to lay his head.

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.
