We want to thank everyone for helping to make this happy ending possible! We are pleased to say that the 3 puppies have all been adopted! The mom and dad are still with us while we provide them with medical care. The "dad" was neutered this week. He did have some frostbite from being left in the frigid weather but he is being treated and doing well. The "mom" has already gained 10 pounds! We are hoping they will both be adopted soon as well. A big THANK YOU to all of you!

Dogs are doing well!!!
Just to verify all the questions about the cat. We did not take a cat in on the day we took the dogs in. Sturbridge Animal Control did pick up a cat that seemed to have a bite wound but it was reunite with its owner. We can only assume that the story of Ricky, who was brought to us after being hit by a car, is where the cinfusion is coming from. Ricky is in fostercare and doing very well. Thank you all for your concern and donations!!!

It's hard to believe in this subzero cold that someone would do this, but they did. They left a family of retrievers in a wooded area. There are two adults and 3 puppies. The female adult is emaciated, the male adult is suffering hair loss and skin issues. The puppies are loaded with worms and ALL of them were loaded with fleas.
Luckily the police in Sturbridge got these dogs to safety and called Second Chance to help. Second Chance has taken these dogs in and provide emergency medical treatment to rid them of the flea infestation and worms. More treatments will be needed to help with the skin issues and sores, get them all spayed/neutered and vaccinated, and address any other medical concerns that are found.
The shelter already has homes ready to take these dogs once they are ready for adoption. This may be weeks for some of them because of the skin issues. The female adult will need time to put some weight on too.
Please help support the efforts of the shelter to get these dogs ready to go to their forever homes! It is very sad how someone could be so cruel as to leave these dogs out in a wooded park in these temperatures. The freezing temperatures and other dangers could have cost these dogs their lives. There is no excuse to abandon pets.  All donations are tax deductible and every donation will be used for these dogs and for other pets as well.  So many have come through our doors lately in tough shape.  Thank you for your support!

When will they be up for adoption? My golden passed recently and this might be a sign for me to help another.

I will take one of the goldens. Please call me at 508-328-0338. I'm so upset about this. They need good homes and I know you guys will find homes for them.

I am beyond appalled that anyone could abandon these beautiful animals, or any animal, for that matter, especially in such bitter cold....
