Second Chance-Happy Tales

This is our favorite page on the website! Dogs in this section have found a happy home with their adoptive families through Second Chance. Once you have adopted a dog through Second Chance Dog Rescue, we would love to post your "Happy Tails" story and pictures here. Please email your stories and pictures to Lisa.

Second Chance Dog Rescue is proud to announce the following adoptions that have taken place since 2004. Most of the dogs that come into Second Chance Dog Rescue were either on their final days or very close to it. Each of the dogs that are taken into the rescue are examined by the vet and provided with all shots, as well as they are neutered or spayed and heartworm tested. The majority of the dogs are often very sick and may also need time to just "feel better". For many of you that adopted from us, our house was just the first step; your home has become your new pet's final step in finding his/her "forever home". Hopefully, as time has gone on, your new friend is settling in and the pain that we once saw in his eyes is turning into the joy of knowing that his forever home is one that is filled with love and security.

To read our happy tails simply click on the first letter of the dog's name to see the happy tails of all the dogs whose name begins with that letter.

Hunter is great Lisa! Hope you are too! I love hearing about the great things you guys are doing so please send the newsletters to our new address.

Best, Samara Presley


Not sure if you remember us (Chris and Catherine Gardner); we adopted Kayla, a black lab puppy from you 4 years ago (the litter was born in early April 2005). I got your newsletter today, and just wanted to share with you that Kayla is healthy and doing well, always full of energy and fun. She loves to "stalk" the crickets and other small critters that hide in the tall grasses and shrubs at the back of our yard. She and big sis Jasmine (husky) "hunt" together almost every day. Besides patrolling the yard, her favorite activities are playing fetch and play-dates with her boyfriends- Clancy (golden retriever) and Baxter (mixed breed ???). Glad to hear the rescue organization is doing well!

Take care, Catherine
