Dogs 2nd Chance is a local, Memphis area 501[c]3 public charity. We are a mixed breed, dog rescue group. We have saved over 1,000 lives since our inception in September 2007. Dogs 2nd Chance saves abandoned, abused and stray dogs and puppies. We spay or neuter, microchip and vaccinate the dogs. We also care for any other known medical needs, including, but not limited to expensive heartworm treatments and orthopedic surgeries. No dog is turned away due to breed or medical needs. We bring the dogs into our homes as foster dogs and strive to find them not just a home, but their perfect, forever home. We also raise awareness of animal abandonment, abuse and neglect along with the importance of spaying and neutering companion animals.
Dogs 2nd Chance is not a shelter and receives no government funding. Our nominal adoption fee barely covers a healthy dog that is with us short term. We depend on donations and fundraisers to continue our mission of saving the stray and abandoned one dog at a time.
