Review for Second Chance German Shepherd Rescue Houston, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We discovered this wonderful organization by accident. When our dog died recently of old age, we soon realized how much we loved him as a member of the family. We wanted a new companion immediately, and we started to search local shelters. We really wanted a German Shepherd, but the chances of finding one in a shelter was slim.
While my wife was searching shelters on the internet, Second Chance's website appeared as one of the choices. We did not even realize that there were groups out there that fostered specific breeds of dogs, and to find one that fostered German Shepherds was more than we hoped for.
Once we contacted Second Chance, we could tell they were good people.
They loved their foster pets, and we were interviewed thoroughly to make sure that whatever dog we wanted would be a good fit for our family. Our house had a walk-through and the yard was inspected to make sure that the dog would be safe in his new home.
We made several visits to public places where the dogs were greeting potential family members, and then we met Austin and his foster mom, Michelle. Michelle told us about Austin's rough start in life, but Michelle and Second Chance took him in and nursed him back to health. They also gave him the love that he had not received previously.
Austin is now a happy member of our family, and he is spoiled rotten.
The kids love him and play with him whenever they get the chance.
Michelle, her family, and the rest of the the volunteers at Second Chance are taking these German Shepherds into their homes because they love these animals, especially this breed.
No one knows the mind of God, but I have to believe that there is a special place in heaven for those who care for animals that cannot care for themselves.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

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

change nothing
