It may be the holiday, but we’re helping two special pups who need a ‘second chance.’

Emma came to Second Chance in December after both her owners passed away and family was unable to keep her. This sweet girl is facing some serious health challenges. She will need to undergo surgery to have several masses removed and then undergo treatment for heartworm disease before she can find her forever home.

UPDATE:  Emma had her surgery and is doing well.  She will be heading home very soon with her new foster to adopt family! When Emma completes her heartworm treatment, she can be officially adopted.

UPDATE 2/13/21:

Emma’s foster sent us a wonderful update this week. Emma is doing great. She has lots of company and she’s fitting in.
Her foster plans to adopt Emma when she completes her heartworm treatment.
Thank you to everyone for your support for this sweet girl!

Dimples is a sweet 3 month old puppy with a dislocated and broken hip. She was rescued from an overcrowded shelter in Alabama that did not have the means to help her. She flew to Massachusetts so Second Chance can help give Dimples a ‘second chance.’ We are hopeful that our surgeons can repair the joint at our North Brookfield hospital. We won’t know how extensive the damage is until we perform the surgery. Dimples may need additional care from a specialist.
Her surgery is scheduled for Monday, December 28th.


Dimples had a successful surgery late Monday and was resting comfortably after her Femoral Head and Neck Ostectomy. Her femoral neck was already broken all the way through and had a lot of inflammation and some scar tissue build up in the joint that had to be removed to get to the surgical site. Dimples is now recovering at home with one of our amazing fosters!  There is some concern for the other femur. She could develop the same necrosis or deterioration of the femoral neck on the other side so we will be rechecking her in the next weeks.
UPDATE: 2/8/21: Dimples had her recheck and our vets cleared her for adoption.  She was officially adopted by her foster this month.  She’s pictured here stopping by for a nail trim before adoption day.  Thank you so much for your support!
