The Second Hand Dog Rescue

1041 Culver Rd
Rochester, NY 14609

Our Mission

The SHDR is a 501c3 and works to help find the right forever home for each dog we rescue. We are always looking for volunteers to foster our pets and to help with many other jobs that are needed. All donations are tax deductible.

Adoption Policy

Our adoption process requires an application, phone interview, and virtual home visit.

We are entirely foster-based and do not keep any dogs at our storefront location or in any shelter. Meets are set up ONLY with approved applicants and arranged with the foster family, usually.
