Leo is a young man who was found as a stray. Leo was most likely a pet just yesterday…We don’t know what his past life was like, but he was quite nervous upon arrival and several days afterward, Leo relaxed quite a bit and allowed me to outfit him with a scarf and pet him. He loves treats and we certainly made friends thanks to turkey jerkies… Leo pulls a little on the leash, does his business with a moderate amount of marking and sits beautifully on command, even wagging his tail as he knows that he will get more food. There is something about Leo’s face that is endearing and reminds me of a little boy, a little boy who deserves to be cared for and loved. Let’s hope that better days lay ahead for him. Leo needs experienced and understanding new owners who with patience and love will help him to feel comfortable in his new home so he will be the wonderful dog he is meant to be. Come and meet Leo at the Manhattan Care Center and offer him the chance of a caring and loving home.

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.
