Upcoming Events

Join us at our monthly dog adoption events in San Diego!

All of our dogs are in private volunteer foster homes, so these events are a great opportunity to meet some of our four-legged friends in person. We do not have a central shelter – so if you’re looking for a particular dog, it’s best to schedule a private meet-and-greet appointment at the foster family’s convenience.

Events also help to educate the community about dog overpopulation and the need for spaying/neutering, foster homes, and Second Chance Dog Rescue’s mission and core values.

 Come join us for some laughs at the La Jolla Comedy Store!

We are excited to present Canines & Comedy, a fundraising event in partnership with The La Jolla Comedy Store to benefit the pups of Second Chance Dog Rescue!

We would love to gather our friends, fans, volunteers, adopters, and fosters who are the backbone of our organization to enjoy this evening of standup comedy with us! Please SHARE & bring friends and family to meet us and raise money for the care of our current and future Second Chance pups! Join the cause & help us SAVE MORE DOGS!

Funny and generous comedians have donated their time for this event and we get every dollar raised with the exception of drink sales!

Kick it for K-9’s


We are so excited to announce the grand collaboration and competition with Frosted Faces Foundation! Together we are hosting our first annual Kick It for K-9s!

It’s a kickball tournament against Frosted Faces Foundation and our goal is to raise $20,000, but not without a little healthy competition. Which organization do you think can raise the most? The waggers or the saggers? The young & spry or the old & wise? Pick a team and make your donation count! It all goes to the dogs!

We’re currently looking for sponsors who would be willing to help us reach this goal. Can we count on you to donate to help?
