Join Our Pack! On a daily basis, we have new foster dogs and cats coming into the system that need medical care, such as insulin, heart meds, allergy meds etc. Won't you be part of the pack and help with a monthly donation?
All of our dogs and cats are in foster homes and we have no paid staff. If you have questions concerning a specific animal, PLEASE fill out an application and the foster parent will be in touch. We will not arrange any home visits with any of our dogs and cats until your application is processed. Please understand our foster parents are precious to our 2nd Chance family; without them we cannot function, so we do our best to not burden them with multiple appointments. Our foster parents will choose their top 3 applications and arrange home visits with these applicants. The adopter will be chosen at that time. The process can take anywhere from a week to a month. We want to make sure our little furry ones are placed in their "forever home" and never have to go through a rehoming again!

Our precious little senior girl was found in a field near an Amish farm. There is no doubt she was a breeder dog :( matted beyond imagination. Being eaten alive by fleas :( blind and with a leg that had been broken but never fixed :( The leg is tucked up under her and when she potties we need to make sure to clean her leg but she is so used to it that the vet says with her age we should not amputate it would cause more trauma than necessary since she has adapted to her leg.
Manheim is blind. She will NOT go to a home with another dog. If she leaves the ranch it will only be to a person that has the financial means to pay for things a senior needs and will not put her down because it would cost to much to help her....

Please understand we do not adopt out dogs to
families with children under the age of 5. We do not adopt dogs to renters. Some dogs will have fence requirements while others may not.
A pet is a lifetime commitment. The dogs and cats in our system find themselves there, for the most part, because their humans did not have the same loyalty to them as they did to their owners. We do not take the adoption process lightly, and will do everything in our power to make sure the animal is placed correctly the first time around for your sake and theirs. Thank you for choosing to adopt not shop!
