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!

Well I can't say I lived a good life :(   I've been tossed around like a beach ball.  I've lived in 6 homes and then when I got sick my owner didn't want to pay what it would cost to make me better :(  I had a large mass on my face which was a blocked tear duct so it had filled with puss it wasnt' very comfortable :(   My owner took me to the vet where the vet told them what needed done.  Of course, my owner said NO to treatment and didn't want me so he signed me over to the vet.
The vet took me home that night and he had 2 large dogs.  They took me outside to go potty but not on a leash :( so I took off.  It was in the middle of a thunderstorm and I was so scared :(  Luckily a nice lady found me and she brought me to 2nd Chance 4 Life Rescue.  When the vet found out where I was they were going to take me back!!  Lucky for me the Director of 2nd Chance talked them into allowing me to live at the ranch!!  I am happy, safe and healthy.  2nd Chance took care of getting me the surgery I needed.   
I will be so happy if my story can help them raise the money they need for the surgical center!  I know some day many pups will be saved because 2nd Chance will have a surgical center to help them all!!!
Oh by the way I am NOT up for adoption because I am FUREVER HOME at the Ranch and I LOVE IT!!!

Is Not Good with Kids

Please fill out an adoption application:
Adoption application (Dog)
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!
