Adoption Thursday: Love and Second Chances Rescue

This Thursday, we’re turning the spotlight on a shelter we’re proud to work with: Love and Second Chances Dog Rescue! Based in Northern California (with locations in San Ramon and Sacremento), Love and Second Chances is focused on helping death-row, abused, and neglected dogs find forever homes, with no discrimination by breed, age, or special needs. Their motto that “Nobody said it would be easy, they only said it would be worth it,” captures the spirit of the challenging, but incredibly valuable, work that they do.

With two foster-based rescue programs (one local and one international), founder Melody and her dedicated team remain committed to helping dogs in her native Taiwan, and the United States. “Our hope is to show that a little TLC can go a long way! Together we can make a difference, let’s start today!”.
