CeeGee would very much like the opportunity to be a part of a forever family.

GROVE – CeeGee is a wonderful example of a shelter rescue residing at Second Chance Pet Rescue looking for her forever family in 2018. She is a playful young adult (2 yrs) that is bubbling with personality and whose cute little ears move back and forth while you are talking to her.

CeeGee would very much like the opportunity to be a part of a forever family. If you are interested in learning more about CeeGee, please contact the shelter at 918-786-7630.

Please visit Second Chance Pet Rescue shelter if you are interested in adopting a shelter pet in 2018. Each shelter animal has a story of their own to share, but all they want is a home and a "shiny new start" to life. Brimming with excitement, a newly adopted dog's first day home gives him an important first impression. Second Chance Pet Rescue offers these tips for a bright new beginning for your newly adopted shelter pet:

1. Have a canine-proof confinement area ready to introduce on day one. Even if adopting an adult dog, you will want to confine her while unsupervised to prevent mishaps. This area could be a crate or gated kitchen/laundry room with her bed, water, toys, and chew things.

2. Make rules in advance and stick to them from the start. If you prefer your dog stay off the couch, putting this rule into effect the first day will cause less confusion later.

3. Schedule plenty of potty breaks. Even housetrained dogs sometimes slip in new environments, so take her outside more often than you normally would when she first arrives.

4. Give your new pet time alone. If you bring your dog home on a Friday and shower her with nonstop attention all weekend, when you leave her alone come Monday, she may go from "bliss to the abyss". A few five-minute solitary stints the first day (progressing to an hour the next), will help avert separation anxiety.
