Hi, my name is Chumley (aka King of the Nose Boops), I’m a 2 year old English Setter and can be quite the gentleman. In addition to walks, runs and playing ball, I also like to practice the art of doggy yoga and of course naps on the couch. I'm also kind of a huge weirdo, my foster mom says there's never a dull moment with me around. I love to meet new people, but can be a little nervous around some other dogs.

I seem to get along better with female dog friends, and seem to be a little iffy about other boys, my foster mom recommends easing into meeting other pups. I’m curious when doors open, because sometimes it means new friends and adventures! I would like to smell all of the smells in the world and get super excited for car rides. I’d do best in a home with children over the age of 15 because I tend to get a little carried away with my playing and don’t realize how rough I’m getting.

I’m great at letting you know when I need to go out to do my business, and I know the standard commands like sit, shake paw, stay and lay down, and I can catch balls and treats in my mouth. In addition to this I’m great at nose booping people and objects. I love to rest my head on your lap when I’d like to be invited up for a snuggle session. A fenced in yard would be great as sometimes I can get a little adventurous and am a super speedy runner. On walks, I love to stop and watch birds, and I seem to LOVE chasing kitties. I promise I’ll make an awesome, goofy addition to your home.

"Second Chance Animal Rescue of Windsor Essex County"

Open the app and you're ready to start walking!

​Our mission is to assist animals in need and place these animals into homes where they will be treated with the love and respect that they deserve. To ensure that the necessary veterinary care for the animals we rescue be provided.

​Second Chance Animal Rescue in Windsor (S.C.A.R) opened in June of 2015 to service the Windsor / Essex area of Southern Ontario, Canada. S.C.A.R is a local non-profit organization established to rescue and rehome cats and dogs of all ages and size. 

The foundation of our organization are board members with years of animal rescue and pet care experience.  Our ultimate focus is to help dogs and cats get off the streets and out of shelters. 

With the help of loving foster homes and community support S.C.A.R aims to be a voice for the voiceless.  We ensure that all of our adoptable pets have necessary veterinarian care by some of the best local Veterinary Clinics. 

The animals are temporarily fostered in loving homes until a forever home is found for each animal. All homes are fully screened and checked before an animal is placed into a loving home.
