Facts about Cassidy

  • Color: Brindle - With White

She came to us after being hit by a car, appearing to be mostly hit in the head. She is about 2-3 years old and I think 45 pounds. She had major difficulty walking when she arrived at the clinic. She is now 2 months post trauma and was spayed on Wednesday and is being treated for heartworms on Monday and Tuesday. Personality: She is very much all over the place, she has been with older kids (10 & 12) and I would not suggest sma ... ll kids based on her hyper energy level and not completely knowing where her legs/feet are, although she improves daily. She has not been cat tested but I do believe she will chase anything that moves. I do not think she would injure said running animal but better to not put her in that situation. She will need to learn house manners, the volunteers have been working on sit and leash walking. She is doing both of those commands pretty well. SO an understanding family, who understands she may not every be "normal" from her head trauma.

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.
