You know how, when you spend time with someone, you can tell if they were brought up properly — with respect for others, good manners, social but not overbearing? That’s how I felt about Emily when I spent time with her. She’s an absolute delight, easy going, has nice leash manners, is sweet and friendly in a low key, calm and gentle way. Emily seems to be housetrained, doesn’t pull towards the birds and squirrels we pass, and sits nicely for a treat which she takes gently. She ignores the craziness on the street — construction, drilling, big trucks and bunches of school kids out on an unusually warm fall day. She’s been well fed, her tail wags gently as she makes soft eye contact with me, doesn’t mind being tethered for pictures, and then comes in for some soft hugs. Off leash, Emily happily explores our small space with a wagging tail, comes in for more cuddles, and eagerly walks over to the gate to investigate when someone new passes by. She was my oasis in the midst of a hectic day. There is a calmness, a sweetness, and easy going acceptance of all things about her that I fell in love with. She’s that companion with whom you always feel comfortable…no need for conversation, it’s enough to just be together. We all need that special friend

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.
