Second Chance Rescue Adoption-Camera Critters


Second Chance Rescue
Maggi, The First Foster Dog
10-years in Our Home

When we had to part painfully from Odin, our first adopted shelter dog, after 12 happy years in our home, we decided that we couldn't "go through" this again.  Losing a beloved pet was too painful so we decided to provide a loving home for orphaned animals until they were adopted.  We went through a foster parent program and after successfully graduating, Maggi was our first foster dog.  She stole our hearts immediately as she bounded (literally!) into our car.  Well, Maggi was adopted immediately by us, and we haven't regretted it for one minute!

For more Camera Critters, go here (of course you won't find one as wonderful as our Maggi!)

  2. We have the same with cats. You think you will never come over the loss, but at a certain point you start to miss something in the house and you start all over again. Your dog looks very comfy in your home.

  4. Maggie is a sweetheart. I've often thought that if we adopted dogs we'd soon have a hundred or two running around the place!

    Have a fun weekend.

  5. I'm smiling at Lowell's comment. We have a few too many rescue dogs here, but can't imagine life without them. They keep us laughing.

    I'm so glad you and Maggi found each other!

  9. She looks so sweet curled up in her bed. What a beautiful dog. I understand what you mean. We had our last shelter dog for 16 happy years and when she was gone we didn't think we could stand to lose one again. But 6 years later I saw a picture of a sad looking dog on an internet site for a rescue group and said to my husband, "I think that is our dog". He has been with us for two years now, bringing joy and smiles to our house.

  15. Julie went through this with cats. Someone put a kitten and bowl of milk under the gap in her garage door. Another time, she found a kitten nearly dead on a rural road. She adopted both, and they lived for 20 years, although she is allergic to cats. She woke up with welts on here arm many mornings from the cat using her arm as a pillow.
