9 April 2017: Maggie still sitting and waiting, it is so sad to see her excitement fade when she is put up by one of the volunteers. She simply does not understand that we all love her but no one wants to give her a home. One day her day will come. 

3/26: Not much has changed with Maggie, she is certainly enjoying the freedom and being able to run and play. When she was first given a toy she had no idea what to do with it, now she runs and jumps and plays with it in her mouth the entire time. She LOVES to get out in the back yard and really run. She is a quick learner when some food and gentle direction is given to her. She loves men, women, and children (older ones we have not had her around young kids). We believe she would do ok with another dog if she is given proper time to adjust and with a dog who will respect her space until she is ready to interact. 

2/18: Maggie is still waiting for a foster or adopter! She is very active, still regaining muscle on her back leg from not using it long term. She had a luxated hip that initial replacement failed. We removed the head of her femur about 6-8 weeks after her initial visit to a different vet. So she does limp from time to time, we have her on anti-inflammatories and glucosamines right now and it helps. She loves to run and chase thing (no small dogs or cats!!). She is a Shar Pei / Hound mix and will need a dog savvy owner.

29 Dec 2016: Maggie, she's 3-5 yrs old, 45 pounds of adorable. She's dog friendly, NOT good with cats. She's a really sweet dog. Recovering from a FHO.


Does everyone not need a 45-pound lap dog? Meet the perfect candidate for that position! Maggie Mae is a very unique Shar-Pei Houd Mix. She found herself in a very rural shelter in Ga after she had been hit by a car. A local vet determined her hip had been popped out of the socket and she was not using her leg at all. He was able to pop it back into place but very soon after it came back out. For weeks she had been not using her leg, and when we were contacted to get her help we immediately had her brought to our vet. It was determined she needed surgery immediately to help her regain use of and start to build muscle in her leg again. She has been receiving physical therapy and cold laser therapy to help her leg/hip heal and she has finally been given the all clear.

Maggie LOVES to hunt when she is out in the exercise pen! She adores the volunteers and really enjoys her walks. She is gaining strength in her back leg and it will soon be as strong as the other leg. She is food driven and enjoys learning new things. She is middle aged at 3-5 years old.

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.
