Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are Chance Foundation an Independent rescue group, serving mostly Southern California. We rescue dogs from the shelters before euthanasia.
I started dog rescue, (even though I've rescued animals my whole life), when I found a litter of puppies in a junk yard. There was one no-one wanted, I took her, and named her Chance. From thereon, I rescued another dog a Staffie named Cosmica, then a lovely Dalmation from West LA named Freedom. I then much to my horror, I saw how many dogs were being euthanized in the shelters, and had to take action. I have to this date, rescued thousand of dogs, which are now living in wonderful homes. Sadly Chance left us this year, I am heartbroken but know that she had a wonderful life and was very much loved. She will always be in my heart and my angel as I continue forth against odds to save as many lives as I can. I pray for a day there will be no kill shelters, and that these innocents will never be abused by owners, and lead happy pain free lives with happiness and love.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a non profit rescue group. We rescue animals from the shelters before euthanasia. We socialize and rehabilitate our dogs before we find forever loving homes. We make sure that the animals are given the best medical attention prior to adoption. All dogs are spayed/neutered, and have their up to date shots. They are microchipped with ID collars. Why do we do dog rescue, because of the huge need there is for rescuers, dogs and cats are flooding the shelters every day. The euthanasia rate in some shelters is 98%. The public are not educated to know, that a shelter is not a boarding facility for their dog until it finds a home, it is very likely to be destroyed. We try to make a difference as best we can, every one life saved is so worth what we do. We also want to make sure that the dogs we rescue, are never in harms way again.

Chance Foundation is in need of donations at the moment. We have taken on a lot of dogs, without funding, and are experiencing heavy vet bills, and boarding costs. Any small amount would be greatly accepted, receipts will be sent out. You can Pay Pal or

Please pass the word on, that all dogs and cats need to be spayed and neutered.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
