In December 2010 there was a news story about a pit bull puppy who was thrown from a moving car. His name is Blake. He now lives with myself, my husband, my two sons and our cat, Winston. The day he was thrown from the car was probably the luckiest day of his life. He met Joe, who (owns?) Second Chance. Joe brought him to the shelter. Blake was so terrified he couldn't even walk, he just crawled on his belly and he shook with fear. By the time my husband and I went to meet him just over a week later he was the happiest dog I had ever seen. This was thanks to the staff at the shelter. We went through the adoption process and our application was reviewed carefully and all our references were checked. When we went ot pick him up everything was prepared. We got a packet of all his records and Joe spent the time to review everything with us and even offered training tips. They were nothing short of professional. We started a FB page for Blake to educate against dog fighting, BSL and pit bull discrimination. (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Blake-Bait-Dog-to-Part-of-the-Family/343235945687492) A lot of the staff is following him and his story. Their dedication and devotion doesn't end when the animal leaves the shelter. The shelter itself is clean and safe. They have meet and great areas and a fenced in area for the dogs to play outside. The best part about the shelter is they are a no-kill! I would never adopt from a place that euthanizes their animals. Finally, to comment on Donna's review, she said they barely had any animals to choose from when she went. This is a shelter, not a pet store. If there are not many animals that is good, that means they have adopted out a lot and now have room to help more needy cats and dogs. My husband and I will be full supporters of Second Chance for many years to come. Highly recommend!!
