Second Chance - Mason Animal Rescue at a Glance
A Distinct Identity
Second Chance - Mason Animal Rescue knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Back in 2000, our Animal Rescue Service realized that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch Second Chance - Mason Animal Rescue. We work closely our local City Pound to save animals from euthanasia. Unfortunately they have a 3 week hold time but so far all adoptable animals have been saved! We also help families in Mason County Texas who are no longer able to care for their animals by finding new and loving homes. Please consider donating your time or money to the animals of Mason County Texas.
Our rescue efforts rely on generous donations from people like yourself. All donations are tax deductible. The money we raise goes towards the medical expenses and care of the dogs and cats we rescue.
Undergoing Heartworm Treatment
This sweet boy unfortunately came back as heartworm positive at his first vet visit. This disease is much easier to treat these days although it is quite expensive. Not to worry, we are treating this kind soul. If you can and would like to help by giving a donation that would be super! He will be available for adoption as soon as he is all fixed up.
Available For Adoption
This is one cute puppy at about 8 months old. He has lots to learn but with some treats he will be perfect in no time! Brutus is an owner relinquish because he is getting too big for the 25 pound apartment weight limit so his owner sadly had to re-home him. We are looking for the perfect family for this fun and active young boy! Is that you?
Great Pyrenees Mix
This is the nicest girl and the best companion dog! She loves her people and just wants to be near them. She loves to romp with other dogs too! We had her adopted but unfortunately the family is dealing with unforeseen health issues and are no longer able to keep her. She is a very affectionate 1 1/2 to 2 year old girl who attaches quickly to a person or family. Shadow does well with other dogs, loves tummy rubs and enjoys nice long walks. She would do well in a home that is fairly active and will give her the mental and physical exercise she needs. She sure does know how to settle down and relax though! Shadow is spayed, current on vaccinations and heartworm prevention.
We (and Shadow) thank you for passing on her info to friends and family!
