LogoAbout Pammy’s 2nd Chance Rescue

Pammy’s was founded in 2012
and has partnered with Petco for over 5 years.

Pammy’s 2nd Chance Rescue is a foster & volunteer based all breed animal rescue.

What does that mean you ask???

Our rescues (of all breeds) stay in the loving homes of our fosters until they find their forever home. We do adoption events (run solely by our wonderful volunteers) Petco in Goodyear and Avondale most Saturdays from 11am – 4pm.

Adoption fees include but are not limited to spay or neuter, microchip, microchip registration and transfer, and for the animal to be current on all vaccinations including rabies. A copy of all paperwork goes home with their new family.


We started working with other rescues before branching out on our own in 2012. We are grateful for everything we learned from them. Pammy’s received our 501(c)(3) status in 30 days which we are pretty proud of since we were told it could take 9 months.

Pammy’s is an all breed animal rescue working primarily with dogs and cats. But you never really know who may join the rescue! (Ask pam about the hairless guinea pig).We have all breeds which are pampered equally. Nobody is left in the heat or the cold. Fosters go through an application process to ensure the proper care of those who are waiting for their forever homes.

In 2016 Pammy’s joined up with another rescue (formerly ChiLuvBug Rescue) based out of Tucson, AZ forming the Tucson chapter of Pammy’s 2nd Chance rescue. We now have fosters and adoption events in both the Phoenix and Tucson areas. We actively work to keep our website, Facebook, Petfinder and RescueMe pages current with our avalible animals waiting to find their fur-ever homes! We are always looking for both fosters and volunteers, please contact us to get involved.


Our hearts are made to love animals.

Meet Scout – Our Mascot! 

Scout is a fabulous Boston Terrier/Chihuahua mix. Although her back legs are paralyzed, it never affects her spirits. She loves to get around in her wheelchair as enthusiastically as any other young pup loves to run. Shortly after Scout was in an accident, her owner died. She and her sibling were left behind. Her owner’s daughter kept the “healthy” dog but left Scout to die in a kill shelter. Thankfully, Pammy’s 2nd Chance Rescue was contacted about Scout.
Now Scout will live the rest of her life in a loving environment.
