Our Mission

Nikeno's Second Chances started as a response to the unfulfilled need for professional assistance during the dog adoption process. While numerous people are willing to adopt shelter animals - many times the combination of untrained dogs and unknowledgeable owners leads to returned or unwanted pets. The dogs in our program come with an additional four weeks of integration training after adoption. Integration training is one-on-one training with you, your new pet, and a trainer. At Nikeno's Second Chances, we believe the key to successful placement is proper training. By giving the dogs structured training before, during, and after home placement - their chances of success more than quadruples.

Having an animal that is not altered (spayed or neutered) may disqualify your adoption.

Adoption Policy

The animals in our program are altered before being placed. They are microchipped, vaccinated and come with an additional four weeks of integration training after adoption. The adoption fee for our animals is $300 for dogs over 8 years of age, $395 for dogs over 6-months but less than 8 years and $475 for puppies 6-months or younger; kittens are $85 20-weeks or younger and cats are $75. This is to cover medical care, food, and housing while we have the animal, as well as the training that sets our organization apart. To start the adoption process, you will need to fill out an adoption application. To receive a copy of our adoption application you may download it from our website at http://nscrescue.org
