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
Black Mouth Cur Mix
Brutus is a fun 9 month young boy looking for love! We think he is a Black Mouth Cur and he definitely has the personality to go with the breed. Brutus would do best with an experienced dog owner who is interested in an active and loyal companion.
If Brutus could talk he would say,
“Hi. I’m Brutus. I’m a boy dog and I am nine months old. I LOVE playing ball. Just love it. I am pretty good at giving back a ball, but not always. There is so much to learn! And I am trying my best. I am smart. I am very loyal. And I love people. And I want to grow up to be a really, really good companion. My new foster family thinks I am a Black Mouth Cur. Personally, I think I am a love bug.”
Brutus has been neutered, up to date on immunizations, heart worm negative and on preventative. He is all set for his new family to enjoy his cute little personality and take him along on runs and hikes. Did I mention Brutus loves to ride in the car! Does this handsome boy seem like a good fit for you or someone you know?
Catahoula Leopard Dog Mix
Mia is a very calm young girl. We think she is a much sought after Catahoula/Pit mix. Doesn't she have fabulous markings! Mia was picked up by our local pound and now she is in the safe hands of Second Chance Mason Animal Rescue. She seems to have been in a home because she sure goes straight for the sofa. If this is not ok with you, she will nicely get down! Mia weighs about 43 pounds and has been spayed, up to date on immunizations, heart worm negative and on preventative! She is super eager to meet her new family. Mia is sure to be a super companion! Mia can be found in Mason Texas. Contact us to find out more about Mia.
