Story
Patch is declining in boarding and needs out NOW! Patch is continuing to look for an URGENT foster, adoptive home, or even a rescue transfer 🚨🙏🏼🙏🏼 Patch has his adoption fee sponsored!! Patch is currently stuck in boarding as his foster home didn’t work out 😭 He was saved last minute from euthanasia. He has been with us patiently waiting and is a wonderful dog! While he loves spending time outside with the other dogs, we really prefer all our dogs to be indoor pets and Patch deserves a comfy home! Here is a little bit about this beautiful boy: *4 years old * Already Neutered * Fully vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative * Walks well on leash * LOVES his human * Has not had a reaction to other dogs and doesn’t bark at them. We would definitely do slow introductions as we would suggest with any dogs. * Curious about cats but not aggressive * Kid friendly! * Gentle and very soft! * Was very thin so he is very food motivated and still has not figured out he’s going to be fed twice and get treats twice a day. He’s not shown any aggression towards us with his food dish. But, we would not feed him freely with another dog. * He is the best and deserves the best!

LIMITED TIME ONLY! ADOPTION FEE HAS BEEN SPONSORED! Hi, my name is Ronnie! I am a beautiful brindle looking for my forever home. I am 3yrs old and love to lay around. My fosters consider me to be a couch potato. If you work from home, I would love to keep you company. I like to go on long walks when available but running around in the backyard is fine with me too. I am not much for toys or raw hides, but I LOVE a large Milk-Bone.

LIMITED TIME ONLY! ADOPTION FEE HAS BEEN SPONSORED! Hi, my name is Britt! I am an old lady who loves to cuddle on the couch with my foster dad. We take naps together during the day and I am told I snore, but I can't hear it, haha. I am looking for my forever family who loves naps just as much as I do. I am not a fan of toys or bones, but I LOVE a good Milk-Bone treat. I have the absolute cutest trot when I am on a leash. Want to see it?? Request a video of me trotting around my foster's backyard.

Story
LIMITED TIME ONLY! ADOPTION FEE HAS BEEN SPONSORED! Hi, my name is Koa! I have deformed bowed legs from being crated all my life and a knee injury! I need a TPLO surgery but due to my bowed legs I was told I am not a candidate for surgery at this time. I am the sweetest boy who would protect you to no end. 🩵🩵 I love to know I have a bit of freedom & have done so much better with open space. I am content by myself but would much rather have human company near me at all times. I do love my fosters large breed dogs. I am unsure how I would do with small animals. Due to prey drive I cannot be adopted to a home with small animals. I LOVE to lick! As you can tell my feet are stained, due to licking so much. I am not a huge fan of actual toys. Just things I can constantly lick & chew. My digestive system isn’t the greatest, but I finally have normal bowel movements! 😄😄 I would love to have bones, cow hooves or pig ears but unfortunately, I can’t process them like I should be able to ☹️. My Kong toy has become my all-time fav now!! I am on prescription dry food. I love to go on car rides! One of my foster’s coworkers brought it to her attention that I’d be a great fit for a truck driver!! I have a hard time with separation from people or my foster siblings. If you’re with me, I can go 4-5 hours without having to go outside. I love all humans & all I ever want are belly rubs or a scratch under my ears & collar. ❤️ I’d be best as an only dog, but with a very slow introduction it is possible to have other siblings.

Story
🖤 Draco is ready for his forever 🖤 Draco isn’t only the loyal dog everybody wants, but he is determined to be your best friend for life no matter what. Dogs never seem to fail humans but yet so many are failed by owners. Draco is ready to have a furever home where he won’t be failed! Draco is a great dog who loves to snuggle on the couch with his person and give you plenty of kisses. He enjoys running outside and playing with his abundance of toys. He also enjoys a big backyard to run in when he gets the zoomies. Unfortunately many would look past him because of his coloring, but I think it makes him stand out even more. I have truly enjoyed taking care of this precious soul, he is such a joyful dog and will make someone very happy! He is hard of hearing so when you want to get his attention I either squeak a toy or I wave to him to come. This treat motivated boy will make the perfect dog for someone who is willing to give him the chance he needs. Check out his videos in the comments! Quick facts ⬇️ •5 year old male pitbull •Dog friendly; cats unknown •Fully vaccinated, microchipped, and fixed •Hearing impaired •Energetic and loves jolly balls •Loves to snuggle 📝 Foster application: https://form.jotform.com/secondchancespetsanctuarytx/Second-Chances-Foster-Application 📝 Adoption application: https://form.jotform.com/secondchancespetsanctuarytx/Second-Chances-Adoption-Application 📍 Currently being temp fostered in Loganville, GA Foster or adopter in the Midwest needed!

🐾 🐾 🐾 Creed 🐾 🐾 🐾 This good boy is looking for his forever home or for a foster ASAP! His foster is having a family emergency and needs him placed! He did great at our last adoption event, gently taking treats from two doggy whisperer kiddos, practicing his sit, lay down, and shake cues, and just chilling with the other pups! He needs structure and an active home. Creed is: 🦴 2-3 years old 🐾 super good energy, athletic! 🦴 neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccines 🐾 crate trained 🦴 super food motivated and easy to train! He has the cutest little underbite, and is good with dogs as long as there’s proper slow introductions!

They named me Nani when I came to the shelter as a stray in early February. I'm thankful to the nice people who kept me as long as they could and shared some info about me to help me find the best home possible. The shelter staff estimate I am about 2 years old and tell me I have beautiful blue eyes and a thicker coat than most pitties. I have been around kiddos and did very well with them. I am housetrained and crate trained and enjoy cuddling up on the couch if you'll let me. My finders described me as playful, friendly, and affectionate and said I listen well. I can get myself into chewing things if my mind isn't kept busy and I could use some help with the leash, but overall I am on my way to becoming a great companion for someone, maybe that could be you!

Probably due to my breed, but I am the sweetest dog in the shelter.If you are looking for a medium energy dog, that doesn't need your undivided attention. I'm it!! I love to play with other dogsI also love to settle down on a bed and chew a tennis ball. So tennis balls are a must for me!

FrederickPitbull mixNeutered male3.5 years oldI was transferred in from another shelter to give me more exposure and different people to meet me. I am a very easy-going, lovable guy, I think my breed and my color were just making adoption harder for me. I'm hoping Indiana will be the spot for me! I am active guy and would love to be your running, walking, or biking partner. I get along great with other dogs and think a k9 friend would be fun too. My previous caretakers said I am very good at and enjoy agility so if you are looking to add a medal to your collection, I have one and can probably get you more :) If 'be more active' was your new years resolution, I'm happy to help you out! Stop by to meet me soon!
