I LOVE WORKING WITH NATALIE AND ALL THE VOLUNTEERS AT NATALIES. WHILE SOME PEOPLE MAY SEE IT AS A "ROUGH PLACE" THIS IS ONLY BECAUSE THESE PEOPLE AND VOLUNTEERS TRULY CARE ABOUT THE DOGS FIRST, NOT "APPEARANCE." THEY PUT THE DOGS NEEDS FIRST IN MAKING SURE THEY HAVE NOT ONLY FOOD AND WATER, BUT LOVE AND ATTENTION AND WALKS. I FOSTER WHEN I CAN, AND IT IS SUCH A JOY. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GETTING INVOLVED, YOU WILL SEE TRUE PASSIONATE PEOPLE WHEN YOU TAKE THE TIME TO GET TO KNOW THEM.

This place really is awful. I used to volunteer there. There is nothing about that place that is good. The dogs are barely exercised, they aren't treated well, and they don't get water or comfy blankets (unless cameras are around). The place is filthy. The staff is rude and incompetent. No one ever knows anything about the animals. I could go on and on.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Start over from scratch.

This shelter was absolutely awful. The place itself was dirty and so unorganized. The staff knew nothing about the dogs. I just adopted a dog today and he is already sick with many issues, including kennel cough which has to do with the cleanliness of the facility. I would NEVER recommend this shelter and really feel bad for the animals. This place is gross. I can't stress that enough. I am just glad I am able to help one dog get out of that awful place.

I am the treasurer of Natalie's Second Chance Dog Shelter, and the passion that everyone (Natalie, board members, and volunteers) have is amazing!!! We take in all kinds of dogs and do not discriminate against breed, age, or even health! Natalie takes in the hardest cases, dogs that have been abused, dogs from puppymills, etc. Natalie's Second Chance Dog Shelter is a no kill dog shelter. We work with dogs that need extensive vet care, extensive training and socialization, and we will put the time, money, and love into them. Natalie truly believes that every dog deserves a second chance, and she will never turn down a dog if she has the room and the money. We are completely ran by volunteers and donations. We receive no state or city funding.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?

Definitely
