Welcome to the Second Chance Rottweiler Rescue

Please visit our donation page to find out how you can help us by buying through our sponsors. We get a percentage all of the sales and that will benefit our Rottie’s. We have so many ways that you can help our rotties even if you can't adopt one. See help our cause below.

The goal of Second Chance Rottweiler Rescue Inc. (SCRR) is to rescue Rottweiler's from animal shelters, humane societies and other rescue organizations where otherwise the dogs would be euthanized. We rarely accept personal surrenders but if you are interested in finding a new home for your Rottie we would be happy to place your dog on our courtesy listing page. Those of you who may see a Rottweiler in a shelter and wish to provide a foster home, please see our Foster Page link.

SCRR adopts dogs out to homes in Northern California, Northern Nevada and to the Oregon border only.  If you are outside our adoption area, please visit for a listing of Rottweiler Rescues in your state.

SCRR Inc. is a nonprofit organization recognized by both the IRS and the state of California -- your donation may be tax deductible.

A special thanks to thank the elusive James Wilson of Wells Fargo for his continued and generous support of our rescue.
We would also like to thank the Redwood Krest K9 Center, Battle Ground Washington, and Christina Reiley for their generous donation to our rescue.

IvyHeidi came from a veterinary in Medford, Oregon at the age of 10 weeks old. Her owners had abandoned her at the vet, asking she be euthanized because they did not want spend money on her to do surgery to correct ectopic urethras, as diagnosed by the vet.

Vince Augusta, one of our volunteers drove to Oregon to save Heidi. Our vet determined that Heidi had not been diagnosed correctly and surgery would not cure her incontinence. She had a very bad kidney infection, that she most likely got from her mother before she was born.

Heidi spent the first 1.5 years of her life continually on antibiotics. She had an ultrasound every 3 months and a urine check every 2 weeks. She finally got to the point where her kidneys are stable and she is no longer on antibiotics. She requires an ultrasound every 6 months and her urine checked every 3 months. She has been off on antibiotics for 9 months but she is still incontinent. Due to that fact, happy sweet Heidi will probably live out her life as a sanctuary dog here at SCRR. We would love for Heidi to find a forever home, but realize she is a particularly difficult case.

You can help Heidi by supporting the rescue so we can provide for her ongoing care and medical expenses.

K9 Cancer Walk Header

Cancer has taken a heavy toll on Rottweilers. For the last 5 years, SCRR webmaster and her husband have hosted a K9 Cancer Walk in Elk Grove and Los Gatos to raise money for canine cancer research. After losing two beloved Rotties to cancer, they wanted do something to fight this horrible disease that so unfairly targets Rotties and other large breeds. Since 2008, the "Rotties to the Rescue" team composed of SCRR families and other rottie lovers have raised over $17,500. The Elk Grove K9 Cancer Walk will be held on October 12th 2014. To date the K9 Cancer Walks have raised over 1.2 million dollars for canine cancer research
Don't live near Elk Grove or Los Gatos? You can join the nationwide Virtual Walk. Blue Buffalo will be matching your donations. All the monies raised at all walks go directly to fund canine cancer research. Last year Morris Animal Foundation funded 59 canine cancer studies thanks to the support of dog lovers like yourself! Morris Animal Foundation has funded over $17 million in pet cancer research to date. Help make a bighter future for all dogs but supporting the effort.

Second Chance Rottweiler has been awarded Dog rescue award for 2007. We appreciate being recognized for all the hard work all of our volunteers put into saving this amazing breed. We also want to thank all of the generous people that financially supported us. We couldn’t do it without your help.
