SECOND CHANCE GERMAN SHEPHERD RESCUE HOUSTON
August 30, 2011
Second Chance German Shepherd Rescue Houston is an organization full of compassionate volunteers who care deeply about the German Shepherds they save. As a volunteer for the organization, I have seen firsthand the heart & soul that is put into each dog that comes through the program. Dogs are placed in caring foster homes who love & nurture each dog, readying the dog for its forever home. Second Chance does not “cut corners”, as they fully vet each dog, taking care of every medical need, including spay/neuter, vaccines, microchip, heartworm treatment (all hw+ dogs undergo treatment) and any other medical issues. The thing I like most about this organization is that they do not “cherry pick” dogs; rather, if they find a GSD in need of rescue, no matter the extent of the medical expenses, they will take the dog into the program given they have the space.
Volunteering with Second Chance has been such a rewarding experience. Not only have I learned a lot about the German Shepherd breed and had a hand in helping save many dogs, I’ve made many life-long friends. The volunteers of the organization not only care about the German Shepherds, but they care about their volunteers. This is an awesome group with HEART and I could not be prouder to be a volunteer with this organization.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing the wonderful forever homes in which the dogs are placed. Second Chance thoroughly screens all applications (reference calls & a home visit) to ensure their dogs are placed with loving forever families.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
campaign for more foster homes & donations.
