Second Chance Dog Rescue


All of our dogs are in loving, private foster homes until they are adopted. We are not a shelter but a dog rescue. If you are looking for a new addition to your pack, please attend one of our weekly adoption events or check out our available dogs and apply to meet them. What are you waiting for? Your new best friend is waiting!


It takes a team of caring souls to save hundreds of dogs a year. We would love your help. If you can foster, transport, help at events or work behind the scenes with IT, social media or admin please reach out. A little time and a little love is all it takes make a huge difference. Volunteering is so rewarding, and the pups will thank you!


Supporting Second Chance Dog Rescue is one of the most direct ways to save the lives of thousands of helpless dogs, provide medical care and reduce overpopulation. Our rescue is funded by donation contributions. The adoption fees cover the cost of the dogs, there is no profit from our low adoption fees. Our proven approach to help saves dogs with no kennels ensures that your investment benefits not just one dog’s medical needs or pull fees, but the future of thousands more waiting for us. Second Chance Dog Rescue is a 501c3 (#26-3642128) charity. WOOF!
