Meet Tippy

Please read entire posting for information on our new procedures. We are currently requiring appointments for all adoptions. Please give us a call if you questions about a pet or complete an application at to make arrangements to visit the Animal Resource Center.

Hi, I am Tippy and I am looking for someone to call my own. I am looking to settle down with my prefect mate.

My person passed away and I hung out by myself for awhile but was rescued and eventually brought to Second Chance and while I love living with my foster mom, I need a my own person. I am not very "worldy" and startle at noises I haven't heard before and sudden movements.

I am great on a leash, I just tuck in right behind you and walk in your footprints. I am slow with other dogs but with proper introduction get along fine. My sweet foster brother helps me meet new people and dogs when I am not sure.
I am probably 5-8 years old and in fantastic shape - just check out my muscular hips....but I did test positive for anaplasma so that dental work I need has to wait a month.

Yes I know that is a lot of information, but I am sooo worth it.

Tippy will do best in a home with another gentle confident dog. She will not thrive in chaos and may be too nervous for kids. She will need a very secure fence.

Tippy will require a dental appointment back here at the Animal Resource Center within a few months of adoption after she has recovered from her Anaplasma.

Please give us a call if you questions about a pet or complete an application at to make arrangements to visit the Animal Resource Center.
Adopters will be considered on the totality of the application and how it matches the particular pet's needs.

Most dogs who come from the shelter will not be house trained.

We do not know or make guarantees that a dog or cat will do well with all children, other animals or is house-trained.

We will need to talk to all of the adults in the home prior to making an appointment to visit with a pet.

In most cases its necessary to to have family dogs come into meet your potential adoptee. Please be sure your dogs are spayed or neutered and current on vaccines (distemper - parvo and rabies) before bringing them for a meeting.

All dogs must be transported home in a travel crate to transport your new pup home safely.

Renters must provide a copy of a lease indicating pets are allowed or contact information for the landlord.
