Finding homes for unwanted and abandoned Shelties
Serving areas within a 125 mile radius of St. Louis, Missouri
Second Chance Sheltie Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit all-volunteer organization that helps unwanted and abandoned Shelties.  We do not have a shelter for the public to visit.  All dog visits occur in our foster homes and must be scheduled in advance after submitting an adoption application.
All Shelties are given necessary veterinary care, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and their temperament evaluated. All adoptive homes are carefully interviewed to ensure the best possible match between Sheltie and family.  A securely fenced yard is a requirement to adopt.  Invisible fences are not considered "secure" fencing.  Tie-outs will not be accepted as alternatives to fencing.  Review the adoption application process prior to starting an adoption application form.
If you have a Sheltie needing to be placed immediately with a rescue, the organizations listed below may also be available to help.  If you are able to keep your pet until you find a loving home, please contact us at to be considered for a courtesy posting on our website.  Your Sheltie must be spayed/neutered to be considered for a courtesy posting.
