Please note:
Like most rescues, all of our dogs live in foster homes and are unable to be met at the adoption center on a walk-in basis. One-on-one meetings will be scheduled once an adoption application for a particular dog is submitted and approved. To meet any of our adoptable dogs without submitting an application, please attend one of our adoption events, but note that these events are rare, not all dogs attend all events, and your potential adoption will progress much more quickly once you’ve identified a dog of interest and submitted an application.

Check our calendar of events for event times and locations!

  • Thank you for your interest in adopting a dog from Second Chance Pet Adoptions. Please understand that our dogs have all come to us either as a stray or an abandoned dog. They are now in need of a life-long loving family. If you are not able to make the commitment for the rest of their lives, please consider filling out a foster application instead.
  • If you are prepared to receive the love and affection of a new dog, please complete the application below.  Please note that you must be 21 to adopt.
  • Any incomplete applications will not be processed.
  • Please ensure you receive a confirmation email after submitting your application. If you did not, your application was likely not submitted successfully and you may need to resubmit.
