Second Chance Dogs is a 501(c)(3) non-Profit organization designed to help rescue, rehabilitate and re-home abandoned, abused, neglected and forgotten dogs into loving forever homes.


Second Chance Dogs was founded by Diana Crimi. In July 2009, the group became an official non-profit organization in an effort to help more dogs. Each current member brings their own special gift to the organization. When all heartfelt efforts are combined, Second Chance Dogs is able to offer a variety of services to help rehabilitate and find loving homes for these wonderful dogs.

Philosophies and Practices

Although each dog touches our heart, we are unable to re-home dogs who may hurt another animal or a person. TRAINING is often the key. Dedication & perseverance are needed.

We believe that a senior dog with health issues is best staying with his/her family. Transitions can be so difficult. Hospice dogs deserve respect and admiration. They have been companions for years.

We offer consultations with the dedicated people on our board of directors. There are two trainers and a holistic veterinarian. We respect those who want to learn and practice responsible pet care.

How You Can Help

Second Chance Dogs is entirely run by volunteers. We need people to help advertise our rescues, write grants; run adoption events, take photographs; transport; contact new adopters to make sure all is running smoothly and help dogs become more socialized and walk on a leash. The list of what needs to be done can be endless. We’re always open to new ideas.

Our greatest need is to find foster homes. We supply the dog food and cover pre-approved vet bills. We do our best to match the rescue dog with the foster home. Foster families simply fill out an application and discuss what their hopes are. Most foster dogs stay in their temporary homes an average of anywhere from two weeks to six months. The opportunities are endless. The rewards so very meaningful!
