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!

So I'm a little "crooked" anatomically speaking!  I would never morally be "crooked" its just not in my sweet, angelic character.  Now here is my story.  I was wandering around the street of Philly now if you have never been there let me tell you there are some SCARY streets and a LOT of homeless pups.  I was "holding my own" but I gotta tell you living on the streets is tough business and I'm just not setup to be "tough" so between you and I shhhhhh I left myself get caught.  They brought me to the shelter and I just hoped for the best.  I tried to look really sweet and stand up straight (well as straight as I can) when people came in the room.

A lady came in and the guy with her said hey this little guy is cute....  The lady said what's wrong with his neck?  That's not good we need to take him too!!  And the next thing I knew they took me out of the crate and put me in their nice warm car with Princess and the two of us left the scary shelter and city behind and headed for Elizabethtown.

Whoooohooooo.  I stayed at the hospital so they could see if my crooked neck was hurting my spine or anything but Dr. C said it is congenital and it is not compressing my spine so its all good I'm just "unique"  hmmmm I could have told them that and saved us all a lot of time :)

Avery has been on a few home visits.  He is very "picky" with whom he likes.  He is not a dog to go to a home with a lot of activity and he cuddles on his terms :)

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!
