Adopting a Dog

So it’s time to add a dog to your family? Whether it’s your first, second, or third canine companion, Second Chance can help you find a dog that best fits your family, home, and lifestyle.

When you come to the shelter to speak with our Canine Supervisor and visit with some dogs, think about some of these topics and how they might impact your decision:

  • Age
  • Energy Level
  • Personality
  • Size
  • Working Dog

The vast majority of SCAC dogs are referred to as American Shelter Dogs. We encourage you to visit the website of the Animal Farm Foundation to find out how an American Shelter Dog is defined and how shelters are helping to break breed-specific barriers.
