About Second Chance Dog Rescue
Second Chance Dog Rescue is one of San Diego’s largest and most successful volunteer based nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations dedicated to saving homeless dogs. We rescue, rehabilitate and re-home dogs from local shelters, dogs surrendered by their owners for various reasons, and dogs from Baja, California.
One of the keys to our success is our network of volunteers and foster family homes. We rely heavily on volunteers who lovingly open their hearts and their homes, offering temporary accommodations. Once integrated into one of our foster families, a dog that may have come to us frightened, timid, or otherwise emotionally scarred, will blossom and flourish with the tender loving care it receives there, often within just a few days or weeks.
All dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations before adoption. All donations are tax deductible. For more information, or to see photos of dogs currently available for adoption, visit the website.
