Mattie rescued from a high kill shelter as a neglected matted little mess. While we don’t get a full story on these little ones, we do know she was living in the back yard with two larger dogs. She was in such bad shape that an emergency grooming was necessary. She had to be completely shaved. She had a limp to her back left leg. At night she was placed in a crate in a room with several other dogs. She never made a peep. She has been around a very playful cat and two cranky old cats with no problems. She has been exposed to several dogs of different sizes with no problems. She is crate trained now and working well on house-breaking. She has had a rough time with her vetting process. When her routine preoperative medical SNAP 4 to make sure she was healthy enough for her spay, she was found to have both Anaplasmosis and Ehrlichia Canis. She was successfully treated with antibiotics, though she will need to be retested in 6 months. At the time of her spay the doctor noticed the limp and injury to her left back leg and recommended a follow up. When the follow up included an xray that showed that the back left leg had been broken and repaired. She will probably always have this little limp to the back leg. Her little injured leg doesn’t slow her down. She loves to sit and just be with her person. She is looking for a home where she will get all the attention she wants and where she will be kept primarily indoors. She would make an excellent companion.

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).
