Meet April!



April is a beautiful dilute tortoiseshell cat. She came to Second Chance as a very scared kitten, but with lots of love and patience from her foster mom, she is turning into a sweet girl!
She has learned to play with toys and that treats and feeding time are wonderful. 

One of her favorite games is chase the feet or hand under the blanket. Are you the perfect person to play that with her? All she needs is a little patience and someone who is willing to let her blossom into the wonderful girl she can be.  To learn more about April, and to put in your adoption application, check out her profile!

Day 3: Nap time and other updates!

 Today is the 3rd day we've had the 10 dogs we rescued from the local hoarding situation. They were understandably nervous when they first arrived at the Adoption Center and we knew it would take a while for them to adjust to their new surroundings. However, it didn't take them long, as you can see by the nap pile photo we snapped this morning!

Nap time!


A lot of these sweet dogs are not house trained. In fact, most have probably never been on a leash before. So, the always amazing Second Chance volunteers have been coming in shifts, to help take the dogs outside, work on their leash training and get them on a potty schedule. Because of this, when a dog does learn to do his or her business outside, we have to celebrate! (Ahhh, the things that make us happy here.) We are proud to say that Nugget has gone to the bathroom outside for two days in a row! Yaaaaay Nugget! Extra kisses for you!

In other great news, of the 14 dogs we rescued, 13 now have foster parents! We are absolutely humbled by the outpouring of love and support that we received, after we sent out the plea for help, and are eternally grateful to each and every one of you.  You have shown these dogs what love and kindness is.



Scooter is still looking for a foster parent. He is very social and sweet, but is having some house training issues. We believe that after he is neutered, and with a bit of training, he will be the perfect dog! If you have questions about fostering, or think you may be interested, please contact Allison at allison@secondchancenc.org

We're still looking for sponsors and donations to help cover some of the medical costs of these precious dogs. You can learn how to donate here.

We need YOUR help!

Last week we rescued 4 dogs from a local hoarding situation, and urgently rescued 10 more this week. The video below showcases the dogs and the help they need. We will try to give progress updates as often as possible on the 14 dogs. If you'd like to foster one of these dogs, or learn how to donate to help with their medical care, you can learn how to do so here.

Gracie and Bogie’s Journey Home



Gracie and Bogie are two very sweet, inseparable siblings who were adopted from Second Chance in 2002 as puppies, and later returned in 2012, homeless with heartworm disease.  

They were treated for their heartworms and are now healthy. Gracie and Bogie have been staying at doggie day care since their return, and have been patiently waiting for their forever home. 

After waiting for fifteen months for a family, Gracie and Bogie have finally been adopted!  We could not be happier for this pair who will be moving to Ohio with their new parents, Kathy and George.

You can read all of Gracie and Bogie's story here.

Meet Cambria!


Cambria is a sweet, beautiful girl with her unique silver-tabby markings and lovely blue eyes. She is quiet, gentle, and affectionate. She would be best in a home without other pets only because she is too easily intimidated by other animals. She would prefer a quieter home without very young kids. She loves to share your lap and to be petted. If you looking for a sweet, quiet feline addition to your home, Cambria is your gal. Come meet this lovely blue-eyed beauty, she'd love to make your acquaintance! You can learn more about Cambria here.
