found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
1/8/11: In collaboration with other area rescues, we received 7 small breed dogs just released from a PA puppy mill because they are no longer needed for breeding. 26 small dogs were freed from their cages today, and our rescue received a peke, a chihuahua, a lhasa, a cocker spaniel, and several dachshunds, all 2-5 years old. Please check back for individual pictures and write-ups. Some will be able to meet with prospective adopters Sunday 1/9 but all will be getting spayed and fully vetted prior to adoption. They are all understandably shy and need to learn to trust people, and will be looking for calmer adult homes with at least one other dog to help them adjust. Please submit an application from our homepage www.secondchance.petfinder.com if you are interested. Thank you to No More Tears Rescue for saving these precious dogs and transporting them to us!
These poor dogs have spent their whole lives in wire cages, churning out litter after litter of puppies to make $$$ for their greedy owner. They have never received proper vet care, been walked on a leash, or had a soft bed to sleep on. They lived in filthy conditions and were not properly groomed. These are the lucky ones- we were able to rescue them and make sure they will get the loving homes they deserve. Many more like them are simply shot or drowned by their owners when they are no longer needed, or sold at auctions to other millers where they will continue to be bred.
These dogs are all understandably nervous and confused in their new setting, but are sweet-natured and want to be loved. They are seeking calmer homes that will give them time to adjust and patiently help them learn to live in a real home. They get along with other dogs and generally do best in a home with another friendly social dog to help them come out of their shells. They are obviously not housebroken- most learn pretty quickly once on a schedule while others may require more patience or need to be wee-wee pad trained.

Our great vets at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains are taking care of these sweeties and they are making sure they are all altered, updated on shots, treated for various skin and ear infections infections (a result of their poor living condtions), and giving them dentistries to clean and/or extract their rotted teeth. We are in desperate need of donations of funds to help with their medical care- even if you can't adopt one please consider donating even $10 toward their care. Donations can be made by clicking on the "sponsor me" button on this page, or can be mailed to:
Second Chance Pet Adoption League, P.O. Box 221, Oak Ridge, NJ 07438.
Most importantly, please remember the stories of these dogs and others like them. Every time someone buys a puppy from a pet store, breeding kennel, or broker, they are supporting the cruel treatment of their parent dogs and encouraging more dogs to be bred. Please refer anyone looking for a puppy to shelters/rescues in their area or to petfinder.com and encourage them to adopt a homeless pet.
We do not have a shelter- all our pets are in foster homes or boarding kennels and can be seen by appointment only during the week, or at our weekly pet adoptions every Sunday at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains from 12:30 to 3PM at 3009 Route 10 East next to 5 Star Car Wash (formerly Boulder Car Wash). To help us better match a pet to your household, we request you fill out an application on our homepage www.secondchance.petfinder.com and copy and paste it into an email, or print it and bring it to our adoption day when you come. Local inquiries only please- we do not do long distance adoptions.
