The Second Hand Dog Rescue was started after its founder moved from downstate NY area back to the upstate NY area. While downstate she worked with Sandra's Second Chance Sanctuary under Animal Nation. The SHDR is currently 501c3 and works to promote a non-profit persona- in it for the animals and not just getting our pets in any home, but the right home. We are currently looking for volunteers to foster our pets and to help with many other jobs that are needed.  We also hope to start a service dog program and need puppy raisers for dogs with potential. 

All donations are tax deductible.
