San Diego Animal Support Foundation helps rescue sweet dog who was punched by owner

Chance sailed through surgery.

A big thank you to Darlene White and the rest of the crew at San Diego Animal Support Foundation for covering the cost of our foster boy Chance’s neutering!

Helping sweet Chance, kitty Tiger, and their disabled but kind and brave rescue mommy Robin escape their miserable lives on the streets has not been cheap, and the show’s not over yet, so Rescue Diva greatly appreciates this donation.

Chance the Champ sailed through two procedures last week—neutering plus the extraction of a tooth that was broken by his ex-owner punching him in the mouth. And it was a canine tooth, no less–a “fang,” considered to be a major extraction. Yet a few hours later when one of the great Surfside Animal Hospital crew brought Chance out, he just gave a good stretch, wagged his tail to reassure everyone he was A-OK, then was up and at ’em for a walk.

A strong, valiant, and super sweet guy, Chance is now ready for a foster or forever home!

Please take a peek at Chance’s story and SHARE. He is busily searching for a fabulous foster or forever family.
