5 March 2017: Our beautiful Shilo is still searching for her forever home, she came to us beaten and clinging to life. We did not think she would make it through the night after so much head trauma. But she proved everyone wrong, she made it! She has a permanent head tilt, she is slow to learn things, but with good consistency, she gets it and REALLY actually enjoys learning with positive teaching methods. She is still young, maybe 4 years old,  and on the smaller side only 45 pounds. Shilo LOVES children and she really is LOVES her trainer Mark. He is kind, calm, and constant with her, and we are looking for the same type of home. One who understands she won't be perfect but really just wants a great family dog.

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.

http://nycsecondchancerescue.org/app-form/


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.
