Garden Gate Photography

Many many thanks to our tireless friends at Garden Gate Photography for all of the pictures they take of our doggies!

Thank you to Denise Archer for supporting 2nd Chance with all our grooming needs!

Thank you, as well, to Nickole Newcomer at the Shaggy Dog Grooming Salon for keeping our pups pretty!

Example Frame

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.
