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 them while the dogs find permanent homes.  If you’ve ever wanted to make a huge difference in a small dog’s life, fosters are our #1 need.

We find out what you’re looking for in a foster dog - good with kids, certain breeds, whatever you need - and we walk the shelter looking at the sad faces 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 to get to know them 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!

Thank you to the above-listed donors for helping fund Tucker’s physical therapy. He went twice a week to the Central Texas Veterinary Specialty Hospital in Round Rock for 6 weeks and he’s using his leg better already! Take a look at the video!

Original Plea: Tucker was rescued from the Austin Animal Center on Nov 8 and immediately taken to the Spicewood Springs Animal Hospital because his hip was out of its socket, and despite the vet at the shelter having put it back in place, it would not stay in and it was very painful for him. 

It was unclear how long he had suffered like this before he was found as a stray, because it was a genetic condition, but he wouldn't bear weight on the leg. His fur was long and matted as well. 

He received FHO surgery (femoral head osteotomy) Nov 11 to permanently fix the hip within the socket. He was desperate for relief and now recovery is underway... It’s been a few weeks since the surgery now, and although Tucker is feeling much better, he has been in pain for so long, he will need physical therapy in order to trust to use the leg. Could you please help us with the cost of his physical therapy? The sessions are $60 each and we would like him to go twice weekly for 6 weeks. Small Chance Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit rescue and your donations are tax-deductible. Thank you!
