The Chance Foundation helps homeless, neglected, abused and/or abandoned dogs. While the dogs are in our care, we give them housing, food, vaccinations, spaying/neutering and any medical care they may need.
We give them lots of love and attention and work on improving their socialization skills and obedience training in hopes that it will help them find their perfect match with a loving home. Every dog we have taken in so far has made great strides of improvement regarding their temperament, socialization, training and general well-being. We take in as many dogs as we can afford to at any given time. If you or someone you know is interested in a loving companion, please look at the dogs we have available.
History! My name is Chance
I would like to share my story with you, with the hope that it may help another unfortunate friend have a second chance at a better life.
Four days before Christmas of 2000, I was found lying in the local shelter on a cold, concrete floor, saturated in my own urine. I was scared, lonely and very depressed. I was so weak from not eating that I wouldn’t even lift my head off of the floor.
The chart on my run stated that I was 14 years old, deaf and blind; so the odds weren’t great for me getting adopted. The people at the shelter knew those facts, and I was scheduled to be euthanized in five minutes. My time, like so many other of my friends, had run out.
Fortunately, my special someone happened to come in at the right time. She was there to drop off Christmas presents for the homeless dogs. She walked in front of my run and found me so pathetic that all she could do was cry. She had no intentions of adopting a dog that day, but in her own words, “No dog deserves to die that way”.
She brought me home not knowing whether I would live a week or two, but she told me that “All that mattered was that I would know that somebody loved me and that I would enjoy my final days”.
While at the time she thought that she was doing something nice for me, she tells me every day that I did her the biggest favor by showing her how much she could love me. She adored me with all of her heart and tols everyone how much joy I brought her. I repaid her by being a loving, affectionate, comical companion to her and her other numerous dogs.
I had a lot of life left in me and I’m glad that someone was able to give me that “second Chance“!
