Over the last 3 years, hundreds of fosters and volunteers have worked together to raise funds for a Rescue Ranch – a sanctuary for medically-needy, senior, and abandoned dogs that may never find a forever home. A permanent facility with multiple play yards and a building for healing, grooming, boarding and short-term housing.
The Rescue Ranch will have a wellness center, and a vet who “understands” rescue.
There will eventually be a therapy pool in place where we can work with our dogs that have had surgery or are old and arthritic.
Our rescue has never had a permanent facility for office spaces, or meetings for the many fosters and volunteers we now do!
Our dreams are big for the Ranch, and for the communities we serve. We would love to start a reading program with local schools where students who are trying really hard at school are rewarded by being invited to the Ranch to read to a pup!
We have found that dogs work miracles in peoples’ lives, so there will be a “healing space” where people going through rough times — emotional or physical — can come and relax and heal with the love of a dog.
We are excited to announce that 2ndChance 4 life Rescue has purchased a property where all these things will happen. However, our journey is not done. We are just getting started. The entire first floor must be restructured to fit our needs. Some fences are up however others need to be built, the entire property needs to have fencing so we can do agility and just keep our animals safe from other animals coming unto the property.. Building materials and lawn maintenance equipment need to be purchased. 2 storage units need to go up.
We are also looking for skilled carpenters, plumbers, electricians, painters and landscapers who are willing to give a few hours of their time to help us help the dogs who need us.
Volunteers are needed to commit to certain hours each week since we do not have paid staff.
There is so much that can be accomplished at “The 2nd Chance Ranch.”
