All across the nation, dogs are abandoned on the streets, abused at home, or simply surrendered by people who can no longer care for them because of health, financial, or other reasons. Shelters do not have unlimited space and often routinely euthanize to make room for more dogs.
Our mission is to rescue abandoned and unwanted animals and provide them with food and general care until they can be placed in a loving, safe, permanent home. We currently operate in nine states, including in our local area, where there are animals in need. Since our founding in 2012, we have rescued and adopted out over 1,000 dogs.
We Use a Foster Home Model.
A New Chance Animal Rescue operates on a foster home model. We use foster families to house and care for our new arrivals instead of boarding them or sheltering them in a facility.
We believe experiencing home life with a foster makes our dogs better prepared for successful adoption. In foster homes, our dogs receive constant love and experience the normal activities of daily life, giving them the skills necessary to prosper. Our foster families get to know their foster dogs. And the valuable information they provide about the dog’s personality and their needs is included in the description of our adoptable dogs.
We Carefully Screen Dog Adoption Applicants.
A New Chance Animal Rescue will not place a dog in a home that is not the right fit for them just to get them out of our care. Throughout our adoption process, we work diligently with our applicants to know their needs and lifestyle. Because of our thorough pre-adoption vetting and the extensive support, we offer post-adoption, nearly all of our matches are for life.
We Always Take Our Dogs Back.
If for any reason, an adoption does not work out, we always take our dogs back. Unlike other rescue groups, we believe the commitment we make to our dogs begins the moment they come into our care and extends throughout the rest of their life.
We Believe Every Dog Deserves a New Chance.
A New Chance Animal Rescue saves dogs of all breeds, ages, sizes, medical statuses, and temperaments. We make a special effort to rescue dogs especially vulnerable to euthanasia at shelters – abuse/neglect victims, seniors, heartworm-positive, mother dogs, and specially challenged dogs.
Some of our dogs have had a rough life up to this point and require extra medical, training, or behavioral support to adequately prepare them for adoption. Whether it is working with a behaviorist, monthly medication, or care from a specialist, we provide our rescues with all of the care they may need.
We Do Not Receive any Government or Municipal Funding.
A New Chance Animal Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit corporation. We receive no government funding and exist entirely through the generosity of donations, both financial and in-kind, and the kind support of local businesses and amazing, devoted volunteers.
