I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter . . . the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal.
I was angry.
"God" I said, "this is terrible!
Why don't you do something?"
God was silent for a moment, and then spoke softly, "I have done something," was the reply. "I created you."

In Memory of ...

Some of us simply cannot bring ourselves to go to a shelter and pick out a dog or a cat from so many eager—or shy—faces looking back at us. Emotions run high when we have to leave behind so many crestfallen faces, each of whom could make a wonderful pet. Many of these animals are in the shelter due to no fault of their own . . . perhaps their owner has died with no one to care for them, a family has suffered a job loss, or some other unforeseen circumstance.

second chance pals was formed to save the lives of many adult adoptable pets by getting them into foster care and out of an already crowded and chaotic shelter situation. We also intend to feature these older animals that remain in the shelter awaiting foster care. This, in turn, should give them a greater chance at a finding a forever home.

SCP

2/27/17: When shelter workers arrived this morning, Gerald had passed away ... he found his forever home on his own.

2/24/17: Gerald is a 7 year old, indoor-only cat, a buff tabby with very soft fur and a cool temperament. He's an older gentleman who is content being a little laid back. He would love to live in a quiet home, curled up on a nice warm lap, or watching the birds from a perch by a window. He is litter box trained. Thanks to Second Chance Pals we were able to get Gerald a complete senior check-up and he is scheduled for a dental cleaning on March 16th, 2017.



DANTE - MALE - NEWFOUNDLAND MIX - 7 YEARS

SCP    SCP
2/23/17: Dante and his foster Mom passed away this past weekend ... a very sad day. Both will be missed.

5/31/16: Dante saw the vet again today; he is now on 17 units of insulin twice a day. His swollen eye is a concern.

4/2/16: Dante's foster mom has told us that Dante has gone blind, his lingering high blood sugar took its tole. Dante is doing well even with the loss of his sight, he is learning to follow instructions such as 'step' when going up and down steps to go outside.

I assured his foster mom that SCP will not abandon Dante because of this new disability. If I have learned anything in my few years in rescue, there is someone for Dante; we can look back and say it's amazing. His forever home is out there; we just need to be patient and get his story in circulation.

On a positive note, his blood sugar is 370 and stable; target is 300; it was over 600. He is on 20 units of insulin a day, 2 shots of 10.

Please help by telling your friends about Dante....

3/22/16: Dante is a big boy, 70 lbs, he wants to be a lap dog, very friendly to humans and dogs alike, totally non aggressive. Dante walks well on a leash, he is house trained, likes to play with toys.

Dante is a diabetic, he is not yet available for adoption due to the fact his diabetes is not under control. Dante started out with 10 units of insulin, then went to 12, now at 14, with his blood sugar level nowhere near under control. Dante is seeing the vet weekly to get his sugar tested.

There are health risks involved with his sugar being out of control, which we hope he will not have to endure. Dante drinks a lot and in turn must go to the bathroom frequently, he is on a strict feeding schedule (every 12 hours) followed by his insulin shot, which he takes like a champ.

We still have our fundraiser open and anyone wanting to donate to Dante's meds would be appreciated. They can also drop a donation off at the shelter or mail it to the P.O. Box. Just note for SCP.
