We know you've always wanted a dog, cat, bunny, or other awesome animal. And now's the time friends! We are here to help you get ready for your new family member, as and as soon as you're ready to take the big plunge. Owning an animal is, after all, one of the most gratifying things you can do.

We require everyone interested in adopting an animal to fill out an application. We have trained staff that will go over every possible question or concern you and your family might have on introducing your newest pal to the family!

We work hard to make sure that we take care of all of our pets here at Second Chance Rescue. But, unfortunately we can't do it without people like you and your donations of time and money. So, if you ever feel like you want to be a part of our family and help some of the best animals around, check us out.

pet of the week


This little girl is dainty and only weighs about 35#. She is about 1 yr. old and is vaccinated, heartworm negative, on preventative, spayed and microchipped. She is fine with dogs, loves kids but would do best in a home without cats. She is playful and loves to play with puppies and kids! She is very smart and listens well. She was found protecting her two remaining puppies, after someone heartlessly dumped her and left her to die in the Everglades. Please consider loving her and showing her what a real family is!

those darn rescues with all their rules and questions...what gives?

If you have tried to adopt a dog, you know what I'm talking about. Dog Rescues - so many in-depth, personal questions; just to adopt a dog! For goodness sake - do they really need all of that information?

After all - aren't these homeless dogs? Wouldn't any owner be better than being a dog lamenting in rescue? Than being homeless?? Nope - as a matter of fact, those questions and in-depth applications have a purpose. The individuals who run these rescues have seen quite a bit of dog stuff in their day. They have seen the circumstances that brought these dogs into rescue in the first place.

There are a few "real" cases where a dog needs the help of a rescue because the owner has died or fallen gravely ill, but the majority of dogs in rescues are there because they had owners who did all things wrong.

Why does the dog rescue care about training? Really, if it is your dog, shouldn't training (or not training) be your decision? Nope. Many of the dogs in rescues are there because nobody took the time to train them.
