 2nd Chance 4 Life Rescue is primarily a sanctuary for senior and medically needy dogs.  Every once in awhile you will see younger dogs but for the most part our dogs live out their life at the ranch at the request of their previous owners or their owners families.  We have many sponsorship dogs.  Our sponsors love to keep in touch and know how their sponsored fur buddy is doing :)
When we have foster families we are thrilled to be able to take adoptable younger dogs :)  So if you have ever thought about becoming fosters please feel free to go to our foster/volunteer page and fill out an application.
The Ranch located at 737 Taylor Rd., Windsor, PA is always looking for dedicated volunteers that will commit to at least a 2 hour shift per week at the rescue.  Volunteers work in play yards, help with laundry and feeding.  Some enjoy landscaping or carpentry projects and some like to bake for the healing center visitors :)
Thank you for supporting our mission of caring for the elderly and medically needy souls that need us!

Well hello my name is Poodah.  I am an elderly gentleman but I still have some spunk left in me.  I'm not fond of being picked up and my legs are deformed but that is probably from birth.  ( I of course know but have no way of telling the humans around me :)
I hang out with the other ranch dude and today I even played with this young pup named Sally who kept jumping on me and knocking me over but I have to admit it was fun and I kept going back for more :)
My celebrity look a like is Ed Sheeran. Don't you see it?
PS my foster mommy says I need to tell you I REALLY don't like baths and getting my legs played with doesn't make me happy.

Good with Dogs, Good with Cats, Is Not Good with Kids

Special Needs: Poodah's legs are deformed. We can tell he is used to walking with them the way they are so we believe this is a birth defect.

Please fill out an adoption application:

Adoption Application (Cat)


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!
