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.

He is smart, knows basic commands, and has good leash manners. He will most likely be found napping on the comfiest spot in the house (yes, he will find it) and will greet you enthusiastically if you come to say hi.

Hi everyone, my name is Buddy. I got that name because I absolutely, 100%, positively want to be your best friend and will spend all day letting you know it! I love following my foster parents around the house, laying on top of them, and wagging my tail constantly in the hopes that I will get a belly rub, a treat or a lap to curl up in. I am housebroken and will ask to go outside when I need to. I'm super dog friendly and interested in everyone I meet. I'll let you pet me all day long if you are so inclined. Despite being playful, I love to nap too. Let me be your buddy!" All dogs will be altered, microchipped, and receive age-appropriate vaccines prior to adoption.

Hi, my name is Dragonfly. Did you know that Dragonflies have been around for 300 million years? And did you know that having a dragonfly land on your head is considered good luck? Well, I won't land on your head, but I will land in your heart! I am very sweet, kind, and playful. I have had a hard time since I was born. I come from the streets of the Bahamas. A nice lady saved my life when I was found on the side of a road hit by a car. I couldn't walk. It was so scary and it hurt really bad. I was only 5 months old! I was very hungry too. Nobody fed me for a long time. That nice lady brought me to her magical house they called a refuge. I saw a lot of doctors. Then I flew on a big plane to the USA. A lot of really nice people have been helping me with my legs and making me strong like a bull! I love to play. I can walk a lot better now too. Here are some other things about me: I'm about 8 months old. I'm a boy puppy. I'm a lab mix. I think other pups are the bee's knees Can I be your Dragonfly and bring you love and some good luck? I would finally like to be in a home that loves me and will have me forever.
