Meet Ziggy! Sometimes we wish our dogs could tell us their stories. Here's what we know. He's 4-5 yrs old and he was found as a skinny stray with his leg chopped off!

But what happened before doesn't matter, the future is what Ziggy looks forward to! He had surgery to remove the leg stump that was left and he's ready to find his forever family. It's difficult to describe The Zig in text, he's such a silly character! Do you ever wish a dog could tell you exactly what they wanted? No worries with Ziggy, he will let you know! Ziggy is a goofy, friendly, always happy boy that wears his heart on his sleeve. He's quite the talker and will grumble and groan until he gets what he wants! He lives for snuggles and rubs, he's a big clumsy lap dog! If you stop petting before he's done, he'll tell you so and gently chew on your hand and nudge his way in until you give in and start again! Ziggy gets along well with other dogs and does well with cats(though he is learning that yelling at cats doesn't make them want to play with him!). He loves people! Ziggy likes to play with toys and to run around outside, he is fast on 3 legs! When he's done playing he wants to snuggle in close and relax. He is crate trained but also does well loose in the house for short periods and loves to sleep in bed with his foster mom. He is potty trained and walks well on leash. Ziggy is up to date on all vaccinations, has been treated for tick disease, he's neutered, heartworm negative, and microchipped. Email for an application to adopt the funny goofy boy! A home check is required.

About Second Chance Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small rescue group located in Snyder, TX. All of our pets are kept in private homes by private fosters. We attend adoption events in Lubbock, TX on a regular basis and go to Abilene, TX on occasion. We also arrange for meet and greets here in Snyder when necessary. The rescue started in September of 2012 with rescuing one dog, and we quickly expanded our program. In the first 5 months of 2013 we have rescued 220+ dogs and about 15 cats. We are always looking for new fosters, volunteers and can always use donations. For every dog we can save there are 10X more that we can't. Our primary focus is on dogs, but we do help with kittens/cats when we can.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are always available for private meetings in Snyder. We try to attend adoption events in Lubbock at the Petsmart on Slide Road at least twice a month ~ more when we have the volunteers to handle the event. We can arrange for transport to most places within 4 hours of Snyder and sometimes further. It never hurts to ask ~ we might have someone going your way.

Our Adoption Process...

All dogs and cats require an adoption application. All dogs and cats we pull from shelters are spayed/neutered before being adopted (without exception). Our adoption fee is $150 to cover basic vetting and rescue fees, unforseen vetting is absorbed by us. We try to return inquiries within 24 hours (Holidays may cause delays).
