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?
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!

Everyone meet 6 year old Ottis. His story is quite the heartbreaking one. He was surrendered yesterday due to his owner passing away. When Ottis was just a pup he was hit by a car. His owner got him the vet care he needed but he suffered spinal damage and was unable to use his back legs. She handmade him a cart with wheels and this strong little guy taught himself to walk again. Now he can walk al...l by himself without the help of his cart with little difficulty. He is as sweet as can be and sad now that his owner is no longer with him. He is wonderful with other dogs, cats and very gentle with children. He also will give a big smile when you say to him 'show me your geekers!' Something him and his owner shared together. Will you give him the forever home he needs? Please remember that in the future he will be a special needs dog as he may need a cart again as he grows older and you must be a truly committed forever home.
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!
