Welcome to Second Chance Dog Rescue!

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit dog rescue. We receive no government funding to run our organization, and we rely on the generosity of the public to keep our doors open. Please consider adopting or donating today.

Second Chance Dog Rescue dogs are housed in foster homes until well matched and carefully screened forever homes can be found. Each dog is examined by a vet and then spayed or neutered, brought up-to-date on shots, micro-chipped and heartworm checked before being placed in their new homes. When time permits, our dogs are also housetrained and taught basic obedience.

Second Chance Dog Rescue serves as a resource to our community and all pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership as well as increasing public awareness of companion animal overpopulation issues, the importance of feeding good nutritional food and keeping their companion animals up to date on their shots as well as heartworm prevention.


Please consider donating today.

For every new person we recruit to
join ResQwalk over the month of January, ResQwalk will give us an
additional $1! All you have to do is download the app, select us as the ResQ you’d like to support, and log
at least one complete walk. It’s that easy! Click here for info.

Shout Outs!

Thank you for all you do, you are truly the best!

Thanks for helping us with the mounds of laundry we have each week

To my Volunteers that come each week:
You make this rescue. I often hear, "You have the best volunteers". You have no idea how proud this makes me. Thank you for all you do for both the dogs and me. You give up your weekends to help the animals and in an age when I often hear, teenagers are lazy, my response is always, NOT MINE!!!!!!
