Second Chance Rescue NYC

P.O. Box 570701, Whitestone, NY, 11357

Shelter Description

In 2009 Second Chance Rescue NYC began as a small dream, founded on the firm belief that all animals deserve love and care, and that no animal should ever be subjected to abuse, neglect or homelessness. We are 100% not for profit and to date have relied solely on donations from the public. Our mission is to offer a second chance to those less fortunate—those with critical medical, emotional or behavioral issues. We are a lifeline for thousands of cats and dogs that otherwise wouldn’t stand a chance.

Bully loves to snuggle while watching TV and play games with his toys. His favorite inside activity is cuddling, he sleeps on his back and absolutely loves to lay his head on your lap or arm. Bully also enjoys going for walks & jogs around the neighbourhood. He is a quick learner with a strong drive to please. He can be shy with some humans at first, but just let him get comfortable for a few minutes and he'll be your new best friend.  All he wants is love and to make his forever humans happy!

Chance is a young-adult pitty mix  who came from a shelter  whose owner surrendered him because he was losing vision. However, these are not reasons why Chance should be your next dog. What Chance brings to the table, if we have to think in those terms, is that he can double as a bunny for you. Just when you think you are adopting a dog, you may find yourself with a little bunny instead! What this means is this little boy with big ears is a keen listener. He will hear footsteps from half way down the block.  He is also as quiet as a bunny - he went off to explore foster mom’s apartment when he arrived, circled it a few times, and decided it was probably better to stay next to foster mom. Lil Chancey can also double as a bunny because he has no problem climbing up the bench or sofa or chair you’re sitting on; in fact, he makes sure he is on the same furniture as you are at all times.  p.s. bonus feature about Chance is if you squint you eyes hard enough, he will also look like a little cow with those white and tan patterns! All dogs will be altered, microchipped, and receive age-appropriate vaccines prior to adoption.

 Chicken Wing is a bit shy at first to new people, but with peanut butter at your side, she will  show you just how much love she has to share. Once she's acclimated, she enjoys playing with her ball, sunbathing, and giving lots of smooches all over your face. Her "chicken wing" front leg doesn't stop her from walks or play, but she is no stranger to a good long nap. She likes chilling at your feet and video-bombing work calls, popping up with her ball to say "hi!" She goes up stairs with ease, but has a little trepidation going down and needs an occasional assist.     All dogs will be altered, microchipped, and receive age-appropriate vaccines prior to adoption.
