On September 24, 2009 my beautiful son Bryan died. He had infantile cerebral palsy and each day my world evolved around my son. After his death, I felt useless. My time had been devoted to Bryan and now the time only made the pain of his death that much more severe. It was suggested that I volunteer somewhere. I have always loved dogs and been able to bond with them so I began to volunteer at shelters and rescues. I learned a lot during that time....I learned about things I thought were awesome and I also learned about things I thought were awful. I knew where life would take me now. I had found a place where my soul could heal and I could honor my son and my self by helping the dogs...thus Second Chance Dog Rescue began.
So glad you are here! We are a licensed 501(c)3 dog rescue. We work with shelters, other rescues, private owners and breeders, taking in dogs that need to find new homes for whatever the reason. When a dog comes into Second Chance, his future begins. The dog's past is over. Our first goal for a new dog is to work with our veterinarian, Dr. Burke, to get the dog as healthy as possible. We then work on socializing the dogs, potty training, basic commands and leash training. We offer the dogs for adoption as soon as possible so their time in rescue is as short as it can be. We believe that ALL dogs should be given the opportunity for a SECOND CHANCE for a new life and work toward each dog attaining that goal.
