My story

If you love outdoor adventures Wallace is the dog for you. This 1.5 year old Boxer/Hound sweetheart loves to be outside in any weather - hiking on the trails, running in the snow, splashing in the water - it's all good with him. He is successful on and off the leash and his recall is quite good and getting better. At 77 pounds Wallace is a big boy, but is as gentle and affectionate as could be. He enjoys playing with other dogs, and will do so every chance he gets. He is very intelligent with a strong desire to please his people, and most things don't take any time at all to learn for this smart doggie. He settles down easily and sleeps through the night on his bed, but would prefer to share yours if given the chance.

After a pretty rough start Wallace has come into his own in a loving and supportive foster home, and is ready to continue his journey with an experienced owner to guide him. He can still be wary of strangers and loud noises, and boundaries are good for him and you. A large yard with room for him to explore and stretch his long legs would be ideal, and while he does play well with other dogs, it would be best if he were the only dog in the home. His size may be overwhelming for young children and he would probably do better in a family with kids over 15 who can understand and respect his energetic enthusiasm. Wallace's potential is endless, and this sensitive and kind hearted boy deserves a forever family who can appreciate how truly special he is.


Thank you so much for your interest in adopting a dog from A New Chance Animal Rescue (https://anewchancear.org). We are a 501c3, tax deductible organization. ANCAR is a foster-based rescue, and we adopt within a 90 mile radius of Bedford Hills, NY. You will find the adoption application here: (https://anewchancear.org/adopt/adoption-application/). All fields on the application must be completed. Please read about the adoption process (https://anewchancear.org/adopt/adoption-process/) so you'll know what to expect when you submit.

Our dogs are in foster care and we do NOT have a shelter or boarding facility. AN APPLICATION MUST BE COMPLETED IN FULL AND APPROVED BEFORE A DOG CAN BE MET. This is a firm policy. Our busy volunteers are not able to respond to questions about the dog or dog meeting requests in the absence of an application. We know these dogs very well because they are in foster care. Please read the profiles of the dog(s) you are interested in prior to submitting an application. If there are specific requirements stated (ie: Fenced Yard or Canine Friend Required) these are included because they are vital to the happiness, health, safety and adoption success of that dog.

We are only able to save as many dogs as we have foster homes (https://anewchancear.org/foster/faqs/) and resources for. We provide medical care including vaccinations, testing, deworming, spaying/neutering and microchipping before transporting our dogs. We provide all supplies, preventatives and any follow up vet care necessary while they are in foster care. These costs are high and the number of lives we can save is entirely dependent upon donations from people like you. We do not receive funding from private foundations or government sources. If you can find room in your heart to help us, with any amount, we are truly grateful (https://anewchancear.org/help/donate/). We are a 501c3 organization, so all donations are tax-deductible. It is only through the kindness of supporters like you that we are 'changing lives...one tail at a time' by providing our dogs with 'A New Chance.' (https://anewchancear.org)

Thanks so much.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

» The first step in the adoption process is to be sure that every member in your household is ready to have a dog sharing your life and home with you. Having a dog affects every member of the household and all of you need to agree that this is the right time to adopt. We do not "hold" dogs so only complete the application if you are ready to adopt immediately. » Think about what type of dog you'd like and what type of home environment you have. Consider how active your home is, how noisy or quiet, how often you're actually home, whether the dog would accompany you places, etc. For example, a very happy and bustling house is probably not the best situation for an extremely shy or easily scared dog, nor is a low exercise, quiet home appropriate for an active dog. » Look through our website at the dogs, paying particular attention to the descriptions that are posted. A cute dog with the wrong personality for your family never makes a happy situation for anyone. If none of the dogs seem like a good fit then wait until you find the one that is. » Once you have found the dog(s) that you are interested in adopting, fill out the application. Please be sure to fill out every question on the application. Each question is seeking important information that will help us in determining if the dog is a good match for you. An incomplete application will not be processed. » After submitting a completed application, if you do not hear from us within a week, please resubmit you application because it may not have gone through. Applications are usually processed in three to ten days, depending upon how long it takes to reach your references. » Once your application has been pre-approved you will be contacted to set up a home visit. » If the home visit was approved, your contact information is passed on to the foster family of the dog you are interested in and they will contact you to discuss the dog more specifically. If you both agree that s/he sounds like a good match a meeting will be set up. » Everyone in your home, pets and people, must meet the dog. » If all agree that it's a good match the adoption can take place immediately. You will fill out the Adoption Agreement, include the donation indicated, and add a wonderful new member to your family. If it does not seem like a good match, we will work with you to find a dog that fits into your household well. If you have any questions about adopting from A New Chance Animal Rescue or about a dog, please email adoption@anewchancear.org

Go meet their pets

We are a foster-based rescue and do NOT have a shelter or boarding facility. AN APPLICATION MUST BE COMPLETED IN FULL AND APPROVED BEFORE A DOG CAN BE MET. Please do not contact us requesting a meeting with a dog because we are an all-volunteer organization, and these requests tie up our volunteers who could instead be checking applications. Sometimes we hold Meet & Greet events with our dogs on the weekends. If we have an upcoming event, the information can be found on our website: www.anewchancear.org.

More about this rescue

The creation of A New Chance Animal Rescue was inspired by the dream and dogged persistence of a teenage girl with a deep passion for saving the homeless and helpless dogs who suffer daily. Having five dogs of their own, and having fostered over 100 dogs since she was nine years old, Sophia Silverman convinced her family how important it was to give even more dogs a new chance. Thus, was born the idea and ultimately, in 2011 the actuality of this 501c3, not for profit rescue organization. Sophia’s mom, Sharon Silverman, worked by her side; and with the unwavering efforts of a dedicated and active base of foster families, volunteers, donors and community supporters, A New Chance Animal Rescue has been able to save the lives of hundreds of dogs placing them in warm, loving, safe, and healthy environments. A New Chance Animal Rescue operates on a foster home model, with the strong belief that boarding and local shelter facilities are not replacements for experiencing home life that prepares a dog for successful adoption. A New Chance Animal Rescue relies solely on approved foster homes to house and care for all dogs. Literally, every home willing to foster is another life saved, and it is in these homes that the dogs experience constant love and the normal activities of daily life, giving them the skills necessary to prosper. As an entirely volunteer organization, our larger volunteer base provides tireless help when transports arrive, adoption events are held, or a ride is needed for an appointment. It is from this volunteer base that all other related activities are enabled; including web design and maintenance, graphic design, accounting, publicity, legal, and training services. A New Chance Animal Rescue receives no government funding and exists entirely through the generosity of donations, both financial and in-kind, as well as the kind support of local businesses. All across the nation dogs are abandoned on the streets, abused at home, or simply turned in to shelters 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. A New Chance Animal Rescue is dedicated to helping as many of these very sweet and adoptable dogs as possible. If you can help us by adopting, donating, or fostering, please do so right away. Please email info@anewchancear.org if you have any questions.
