Disco Dog

July 22, 2011, 4:57 PM by Don Jorgensen

Disco Dog
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Now that Second Chance Rescue is closing, it's been scrambling to try and find safe homes for all the pets. But one dog in particular doesn't have to worry. 

"This is Disco; he's got party ears," Virginia Colgan said. 

Disco is quite the party animal.  It's obvious he's no John Travolta, but loves showing off his moves just the same. 

Colgan has volunteered at Second Chance Rescue for two years. When Disco was brought to the animal shelter back in May, Colgan fell in love with him. 

"Disco is a fun, fun dog.  He is just a sweetheart.  He gets along with people very well.  Just look at him, he just looks like a lot of fun," Colgan said.

Colgan says she was watching the news Friday morning when she heard Second Chance was closing its doors. Her first thought was to rescue her buddy Disco.

"Because a lot of people don't know what it means to be a pitbull owner and I didn't want them getting euthanized or go to a bad home, so I came out here to see my buddy Disco and see how the other dogs are faring," Colgan said.

While some of the animals' futures are uncertain right now, Colgan says if no one adopts Disco, she will. But Colgan still worries about the other animals. 

"I hope some other organization can step up and take care of the constant need for animals in our community," Colgan said.
