My Rescue
Login to Remember your Favorite Animals and Breeds!

 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!

Are you looking for a running partner? Hiking? Walking companion? If you are I could be the girl for you! I love being active and need daily exercise to keep me out of trouble. I'm growing up in my foster home which has been GREAT but I would love to have a family of my own. I get so excited to meet new people that I tend to jump and act crazy-my foster mom is trying to teach me proper greetings but we still need to work on this-I'm still a puppy after all:)  My foster mom has been working hard at teaching me commands. I have mastered sit, shake, down, roll over, and I am working on stay. I walk good on a leash and harness. I ride nice in the car! I'm now fully housebroken and I "knock" on the door when it's time for me to go out. I think I have been really easy to train:) just give me some peanut butter or hot dogs and I'll do what you want me to do:) I'm fully crate trained too! My foster mom has been leaving me out over night and it turns out I'm quite the snuggler. She also let me out when she ran to the store the other day and I didn't touch or chew anything.
Please consider adopting me-I know that with a little work and training I will be the best, most loving and loyal hound you will ever meet.
The vet thinks I am a Bluetick Coonhound/Beagle mix. Please research these breeds-Coonhounds are very loyal but extremely hard headed. They need a "job" or they will become destructive. The same can be said about Beagles. Both breeds are extremely intelligent but also have a mind of their own. No off leashing for this lady-she follows her nose and not commands.

Papaya showed up with her 3 siblings in a box on a cool March day at a rural shelter in WV.  They had no idea why they were left :(   They are sweet little babies who need a human that values them and wants to be their "forever friend"

Papaya says PLEASE if you cannot commit to her for life do not fill out an application.  She doesn't want to be "dumped" ever again!!!

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!
