Thank you for taking an interest in helping a small breed rescue dog!  Whether you are here to browse for a future family member, donate to help continue our efforts, or just here to see some cute faces, we appreciate your interest in our friends in need.

If you are interested being a foster for a dog in need, please fill out our Foster Application and we’ll give you a call!

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 5/13/17: Trixie’s pneumonia is improving, though still hanging around. She has a pulmonary hypertension that we will get her medication to treat. Her incision is healing!

Original plea: Trixie has been in the rescue group quite a while (5 years!), most of which was time spent undergoing the slow version of heartworm treatment due to her age and her advanced heartworm infestation (that’s a patient foster family!). She finally made it to the adoptable status a year or so ago, but she recently sustained a laceration to her abdomen due to an accident while in foster care.  She had immediate surgery to repair the wound and her recovery has been rough, with issues with secondary pneumonia and a possible infection in the wound. We are asking for help to cover the cost of this unexpected but necessary surgery.  Small Chance Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit rescue and your donations are tax-deductible. Thank you!
