Their mission to help animals spreads the spirit of goodwill in our community by taking in and helping stray dogs as well as dogs that have been surrendered by owners that can no longer care for them. Natalie’s also works with other rescues and animal shelters to re-home dogs and puppies. They do not discriminate by breed, size, age, or even health.

Thanks to the compassionate team at Natalie’s Second Chance Shelter, many dogs have also been rescued from high-kill shelters. Natalie regularly posts photos of dogs that are available for adoption and fostering on the shelter’s Facebook page. If you’re considering adopting or fostering a dog, look into Natalie’s first!
