Many happy returns!



Any amount you can help with vet bills and other expenses is greatly appreciated. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit, so all donations are tax-deductible! Please click the Paypal link above.

The number of dogs we can rescue is directly related to the amount of space we have available in foster homes to keep the dogs loved and healthy while we find them permanent homes.  If you’ve ever wanted to make a huge difference in a small dog’s life, fosters are our #1 need.

We will work with you to find out what you’re looking for in a foster dog - good with kids, certain breeds, whatever you need - trying to find one who will fit.  We pull them out of the shelter and into a new world where they are loved, well-fed, and encouraged to become part of a family again.  We rely upon the foster parent to get to know the dog so we can find the best possible forever home.

If you are interested in making a tangible difference in the life of a homeless dog, please submit a Foster Application soon!

We Need Foster Parents!

UPDATE: We have reached our fundraising goal AND Bubbles was adopted. Thank you to the above-listed donors!

Original plea: Bubbles came from the Bryan Animal Center with concerns that she needed specialized care due to suspected hydrocephalus. Bubbles saw our vet who confirmed she has hydrocephalus. She is also blind in one eye and may have vision impairment in the other eye although she tracks light and objects. Other than that, she’s in pretty good shape! She may not have a normal lifespan of a chihuahua, but she will have a relatively normal chihuahua life. She will require a cautious home to make sure her little noggin is well-protected. Although there isn’t much to be immediately done for her related to the hydrocephalus, she needed to be spayed with fluids, blood pressure monitoring, and pre-anesthetic bloodwork as a unique case. Therefore, we had this service performed at a full service veterinary office instead of the low-cost spay/neuter clinic. 

Please help Cotton Candy

Cotton Candy came in with a group of puppies from the Austin Animal Center and had the bad luck of being born with a pulmonary stenosis, which doesn’t bode well for a long term good prognosis. However, we have her scheduled for an appointment at Texas A&M Animal Hospital in October to see if she’d be a candidate for balloon surgery when she reaches maturity, which is dependent on if she can reach a larger weight of around 12 pounds. For now, she’s on a compounded prescription that costs about $40 per month. Her next cardiologist visit with diagnostics will cost $650. Could you please help us with her special needs by donating toward her care? Small Chance Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit rescue and your donations are tax-deductible. Thank you!
