You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. 2nd Chance 4 Life Rescue is primarily a sanctuary for senior and medically needy dogs. Every once in awhile you will see younger dogs but for the most part our dogs live out their life at the ranch at the request of their previous owners or their owners families. We have many sponsorship dogs. Our sponsors love to keep in touch and know how their sponsored fur buddy is doing :)When we have foster families we are thrilled to be able to take adoptable younger dogs :) So if you have ever thought about becoming fosters please feel free to go to our foster/volunteer page and fill out an application.The Ranch located at 737 Taylor Rd., Windsor, PA is always looking for dedicated volunteers that will commit to at least a 2 hour shift per week at the rescue. Volunteers work in play yards, help with laundry and feeding. Some enjoy landscaping or carpentry projects and some like to bake for the healing center visitors :)Thank you for supporting our mission of caring for the elderly and medically needy souls that need us!Well my life is like a country song except I dont drive a truck!! I found myself with hard times living in a dump. The humans that were to love me DIDNT! And even though my life was rough I was luckier than some in the house!!! When the authorities came to save us they found cats in bottles of water drowned and in totes filled with water drowned :((( There were 10 dogs, 10 live cats, bunnies and birds all in a single wide trailer yep it was definitely a sad song UNTIL I found myself in a vehicle (that was nicer than my home) headed for the north and a new life!!! I reside at this place called the Rescue Ranch and boy do I like it!!!! I mean I have a really hard time sleeping because there is so much fun stuff to do and LOTS of fur friends to play with!!! The cats are not that thrilled with me because I think its great fun to chase them but they are super nice so they just run and they dont even try to whack me WOW!!! The other dogs are fun to play with I get into it with Deloris sometimes so mom says we will definitely not go to the same house! Thats good cause she always tries to steal the show!!! Well gotta go I just saw Toby saunter by so that means I need to go chase him! Have a great day I know I will :)Please fill out an adoption application: Adoption application (Dog) Adoption Application (Cat)

Please understand we do not adopt out dogs to families with children under the age of 5. We do not adopt dogs to renters. Some dogs will have fence requirements while others may not.

A pet is a lifetime commitment. The dogs and cats in our system find themselves there, for the most part, because their humans did not have the same loyalty to them as they did to their owners. We do not take the adoption process lightly, and will do everything in our power to make sure the animal is placed correctly the first time around for your sake and theirs. Thank you for choosing to adopt not shop!
