We are the 2nd Chance 4 Life Rescue
Our mission is to provide homeless and abandoned dogs with a second chance and a brighter future. In doing this, our rescue organization will:
- Ensure loving and safe homes for these dogs for the rest of their lives
- Encourage responsible dog ownership
- Educate our youth in hopes to cease the need for shelters altogether.
Through dedication and perseverance our volunteers will continue to be committed to the three E's as long as there are dogs in need. We believe every adoptable dog deserves a 2nd Chance 4 Life.
2nd Chance 4 Life Rescue is dependent upon its fosters. They are the "hub" of our organization. We appreciate EVERYTHING they do. Our fosters open their hearts and homes to dogs that without them may be living on "borrowed time" And believe me the dogs seem to know that they were saved and appreciate their foster families. People tend to think that shelter dogs must be "problem dogs", on the contrary, many were just unlucky and ended up with owners that felt they were dispensable. So for all the love and loyalty they gave, their owners still "dumped" them at the local kill shelter when they became inconvenient for whatever reason. Other owners failed to plan for their loyal pet in case of their death and so the owners family dropped the dog off at the kill shelter.
Usually our foster dogs are wonderful little creatures, starving for love and attention and yes, sometimes food! If you would consider opening your heart and home to an innocent dog who did nothing wrong other than end up at the shelter, PLEASE fill out a foster application and we will be in touch. I guarantee your family will be blessed by the wonderful dogs and people they meet through becoming a foster. And parents, don't worry about your children not understanding the fostering concept, children get it ~ It is the adults that have a much harder time with it!! However, if you remember that for every dog adopted, 2 dogs have been saved (the one you take in your home and the one who now has a kennel at the shelter because we made room). It makes the process much easier and so rewarding! I look forward to meeting you and having your family as a part of our foster family network!
