We have a new email address just for our volunteers to use.  We are trying to get better at scheduling all the people who help us every day to keep our shelter humming!  



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!

 Here's Truffles!

Come and meet our girl Truffles!  She is a loving dog that we are urgently seeking a home for.  She listens well, is solidly housebroken and knows basic commands. Most importantly her favorite place is where you are!

She doesn't do well here at the shelter even though she has many friends that come to take her for long walks and adventures.  

Truffles is around 10 years old but you would never guess it.  She is good with older children (ages 5+) and with other dogs.  Please consider adopting this lovable girl into your family!

 Meet our sweet girl Senna!  Senna came to us emaciated and from death row.  She has been here a very long time and is ready to go to a furever home.  Senna would be best as an only dog so she can be showered with all the love!  She is about 5 years old, housebroken and back to good health.  That floppy ear gives her great character don't you agree?  COME AND MEET SENNA!


About us

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!!!
