2nd Chance Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization; we are dedicated to saving neglected, abandoned, and fearful dogs. We also work with our local shelters in saving the “extreme medical” dogs that are scheduled to be euthanized due to their injuries. We provide the proper medical, shelter, and a safe environment, in order to help them overcome their insecurities and regain their trust in humanity.
We have opened our hearts to them with the hope and goal of finding them their forever homes. Unfortunately, some dogs have been abused and/or neglected to the point where they no longer trust humans - for those dogs, our rescue is their sanctuary, to live out the rest of their days, loved and secure.
Please consider opening your home and heart to one of our amazing dogs. If you aren’t able to adopt one of our dogs, please consider making a donation to their medical and rehabilitation; 100% of your donation goes to their care and is tax-deductible, as our organization is completely volunteer-run and operated, with no paid salaries.
