Our mission is to provide compassionate care to animals through adoptions, education, crisis intervention, and community involvement because we believe every animal, child, and community deserves a chance.
Our vision is to get children involved in helping animals that are neglected by creating skills with education and engaging the community through awareness.
What We Do
We are a no kill animal shelter providing crisis intervention, education programs, community involvement, outreach programs, and pet food assistance.
Why We Do It
Chance Shelter believes that being proactive in the city of Surprise will show that our city is on board with other valley communities in the awareness that we have to do our part to help prevent the neglect, abuse and overpopulation of animals.
How We Do It
The shelter will integrate volunteers to deploy and coordinate with first responders for emergency needs with animals. Chance Shelter assists pets and their owners in need of assistance through alliances with valley fire departments, police departments, and other charities.
Help offered includes assistance and referral to critical resources for disasters such as house fires, natural disasters, a death of a family member with no placement for the animal, and traffic accidents with animals involved. We also offer aid to the community in case of loss of job or home. Chance Shelter will help with the needs necessary to assist the family in an effort to keep owners together with their pets while they try to get back on their feet.
