Story
Stella was found in the backyard when she was about 8 weeks old. Friendly enough to let my wife pick her up and take her home. At the time we were fostering five 4 week old kittens and two 10 month old longhair male Siberian kittens. We are sure that Stella and the longhairs came from the same mother ( shorthair ) and it is possible that the other 5 did as well. Stella is now about 20 months old and adjusted to being a house cat. She shows her affection and wants affection but is not overbearing. She does not exhibit any negative household behavior. She comes around to socialize and disappears when she's ready to be alone; a normal cat. The problem is that the longhairs, particularly one of the longhairs, are / is very aggressive towards her and she is always on guard or she hides more than she should. I think she would do much better in a home where she does not have to look over her shoulder constantly. I am open to a trial period where she can be returned.

Story
Looking to re-home this sweet boy. With working so many hours and being away often he is home alone a lot. I think he would be much better with someone who is home more often. His name is Lincoln and he is 7 years old, he can be pretty vocal at times and he’s still very playful for his age. Must be a kid free home. Please reach out with any other questions you may have!

Story
I got theikos when he was 4 months old at humane league on prince street, we’ve been going strong for 7 long years. He’s been loved and taken care of through all 7 years, my lease is ending and I’m moving into a new apt that doesn’t allow any pets unfortunately. This was a tough decision and a decision I didn’t want to make so I hope whoever adopts my beautiful boy can give him love and a good life for the remainder of his time here on earth.

Story
Meet Callie! She's just over 6 years old and is such a sweetie 😻 She can be a big scaredy cat, but will give all the love if she feels safe. Once she starts purring she doesn't stop, and she's a pro biscuit maker! She likes to play, and she can be talkative when she wants to be. She isn't a huge fan of other kitties, so she would probably be happiest as the sole cat in a household. I am SO sad to be rehoming Callie, but I'm entering the mission field and will be moving to Guatemala in a few short weeks, so I'm looking for someone to give Callie a loving home in my place 🥹💔

Story
My wife and I found Joni when she was less than a week old. She was abandoned, caked with mud, and covered in fleas, so we brought her home, and cleaned her up. That was in the Fall of 2021, 6 months before our first kid was born. After rescuing her, we became attached and decided to keep her. But presently, we now have two children, demanding jobs, and skyrocketing expenses. Providing Joni the attention she deserves is tough, and caring for her is a strain on our resources. We did our best to provide her a loving home and we're proud to have rescued her, but now we think it's best to find her a long-term home with parents who can give her a better quality of life than we can expect to, given our circumstances.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. 2nd Chance 4 Life Rescue is primarily a sanctuary for senior and medically needy dogs.  Every once in awhile you will see younger dogs but for the most part our dogs live out their life at the ranch at the request of their previous owners or their owners families.  We have many sponsorship dogs.  Our sponsors love to keep in touch and know how their sponsored fur buddy is doing :)When we have foster families we are thrilled to be able to take adoptable younger dogs :)  So if you have ever thought about becoming fosters please feel free to go to our foster/volunteer page and fill out an application.The Ranch located at 737 Taylor Rd., Windsor, PA is always looking for dedicated volunteers that will commit to at least a 2 hour shift per week at the rescue.  Volunteers work in play yards, help with laundry and feeding.  Some enjoy landscaping or carpentry projects and some like to bake for the healing center visitors :)Thank you for supporting our mission of caring for the elderly and medically needy souls that need us!We are constantly being asked to help find a home for a helpless cat.  Typically it is someone is moving or the owner has died and there are only days to keep it from being tossed on the street or ending up in a kill shelter.PLEASE tell us what you are looking for in your next cat and we will process you application and call you when we have 'a fit'Thank you for caring enough to adopt instead of shop!Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.Please fill out an adoption application: Adoption application (Dog) Adoption Application (Cat)   Please understand we do not adopt out dogs to families with children under the age of 5. We do not adopt dogs to renters. Some dogs will have fence requirements while others may not.   A pet is a lifetime commitment. The dogs and cats in our system find themselves there, for the most part, because their humans did not have the same loyalty to them as they did to their owners. We do not take the adoption process lightly, and will do everything in our power to make sure the animal is placed correctly the first time around for your sake and theirs. Thank you for choosing to adopt not shop!June 11, 2024, 2:26 pm
