5 Feb 2017: Heidi is one of the most gentle loving girls you could ever hope to meet.....and yet this wonderful soul has known her share of pain. Heidi had been so abused t ... hat when she came into the shelter she had to have a leg amputated. Just look at her....look into her eyes. This is a wonderful forgiving precious dog.
Shelter notes:
"Here is a picture of this beautiful girl when we found her and the awful condition she was in. I just can not believe this sweet and wonderful dog hasn't been adopted. My heart hurts for her . . .I found her wandering down Highway 127 dragging her broken leg that she had been gnawing at, swollen, infected and a wire clothes hanger wrapped around her leg so much ...and so tight that it had swollen to at least the size of baseball. Her nose was cut up from where every time she would chew her rotted leg the wire would scratch her nose. Heidi is not good with cats

"Everyone needs a spiritual guide, mine is my dog, he has great wisdom to impart, he makes friends easily and doesn't hold a grudge, he enjoys simple pleasures and takes each day as it comes, like a true Zen master he eats when he is hungry and sleeps when he is tired, and best of all he befriends me with an unconditional love that human beings would do well to imitate."
This quote really puts things into perspective for us: many of the dogs that we have sent you over time have experienced abuse, injury and neglect at the wicked and heartless hands of humans; however, they still wag their tails with boundless joy and love with a purity as if they had never been hurt. This is a great life lesson for us all.

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.
