Follow us on facebook to get the most up-to-date information on shelter happenings. We update the doggie profiles there first and share pictures daily of all of our kids up for adoption.  We also have an "Adoptable Dogs" Album which has pictures of all our kids up for adoption in one place!


Ollie is a 2 year old lab mix with loads of energy!  He's bright, housebroken and even has a few basic commands down.  When Ollie first arrived he was fine with other dogs, but as he's been here for far too long he has grown intolerant of other animals and is exhibiting food aggression.  We are putting out a plea for help for Ollie!  He loves people however the shelter life is really getting to him. Because of his aggression behaviors, we feel that he should not be in a home with children. He needs an experienced dog owner to help him re-acclimate to life outside the shelter.  If you are interested in a buddy come and see Ollie - he's beyond  ready to be your forever friend.

We are a no kill dog shelter founded in 2009 by Natalie Moore.  We are a 501(c)3, non-profit organization that relies heavily on private individual donations and volunteer services to be able to continue helping homeless dogs. We have a board of directors that helps manage the shelter. 

We accept personal surrendered dogs, strays, and work with other rescues or animal shelters to rehome dogs and puppies. We have saved many dogs from death row at high kill shelters. We do not discriminate against breed, age, or health of a dog and we provide all of our dogs with a comfortable, temporary home until a match with the right family can be found.

Why adopt and support Natalie's Second Chance Dog Shelter? We are a local dog shelter that rescues all kinds of dogs in need all over the state of Indiana (sometimes even out of state!). We do not discriminate dogs by breed, size, age, or... even by their health. As long as we have the room, funds, and support to take a dog in, we will never deny a dog! We accept pregnant moms, puppies, injured dogs, senior dogs, and even dogs that may not have the best temperament. We work with all dogs to get the healthy and happy, we have a vet and a trainer that works closely with us to help us get dogs in the best condition so they can go to a great home. We make sure that each of our dogs go to the best fit home for them, which is why a lot of times we start out with a "foster to adopt" agreement to make sure the dog fits well inside the home. To us... our dogs are like our kids, so we always make sure they are well taken care of, and we want them to go to the best homes possible. We appreciate all that this community has done for us, and really thank you for your continued support and love. Please help spread the word about our shelter, and help us to grow even bigger!! The bigger we are, the more dogs we can save!!!
