  • Size: Unknown
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10751559-16-0814

Chaquita is a Border Collie, 5 years old, 56 pounds, and is Heartworm positive. She was an owner surrender after her owner passed away. She has lived her entire life in a pen outside and has never even been to the vet. We do no know how long she had the mass or even how quickly it developed, but what we do know is that it was large and was encompassing her urethra. Surgery was complicated and difficult, it took about 2 hours. When it was all said and done the mass has been removed and sent to the lab. We were not able to get clean margins because of the urethra involvement. She is a friendly dog, which is good because the lady who dropped her off told us that she may bite. She has not shown any aggression towards other animals. She is becoming a favorite of FAH.

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.
