Chances Animal Rescue, Inc is an all volunteer organization. It is vitally important that all of our volunteers realize that his or her part is critical to the success of our rescue work. No matter how small or significant you feel your role might be, we would love to have your help.
Speak Up! - Tell your kids, friends, family and even strangers about the importance of spaying/neutering to cut down on overpopulation. Spread the word about rescuing versus buying puppies from pet stores. Teach responsible pet ownership and compassion.
Are you ready to Foster?
You can save a life by giving a temporary home to an animal.
Do you have the time and patience to work with a shy animal who needs a little help with his or her social skills, or maybe an older animal that needs a little more peace and quiet, and have spare room in you heart and home, consider fostering. If you are able to provide a temporary home for one of the animals, it can be a wonderful, life-affirming experience you will very much enjoy and hopefully want to repeat.
