Thank you to our amazing community for making this year’s Giving Tuesday our best EVER!

Thank You Lizzie, Charlotte, & Katherine!
A huge thank you to Lizzie, Charlotte, & Katherine for raising awareness, funds and supplies! They are 8th grade students in CT who focused their service project for school on ANCAR, and as part of it they set up a fundraising table at the Ridgefield Pet Valu. They are all dedicated dog lovers, and Lizzie and her family are fostering sweet Luka.

Foster Homes Needed

Please help us save lives by fostering a rescue dog in need.  Every foster home we find allows us to save another dog.  You provide a safe and caring environment, we provide all supplies and cover all costs.

Thank You Joelle!
A HUGE thanks to Joelle Cohen for everything she does for ANCAR! She is a wonderful foster mom, a tireless volunteer and a funny and creative social media maven. Joelle just organized all the dogs and firefighters for the photo shoot for our 2019 “Hounds and Heroes” calendar! Here she is getting her favorite kind of thanks.

Thank you Adam Nack!

We’d like to extend a **HUGE** thank you to Adam Nack for collecting supplies for us at his Bar Mitzvah celebration!!  On top of this amazing display of generosity, Adam and his family are ANCAR adopters and, best of all, a wonderful foster family. Adam, we are so proud to have a young man of your character among the ranks of our junior volunteers!

Open Your Heart & Home

We are desperately in need of foster homes for dogs of all breeds, ages, and sizes. With some of our regular foster homes on vacation, we are already working at a deficit. By taking in a foster dog, you save 2 lives: the dog you take in and the dog you make space for. We cover all costs and provide you with all the supplies you need; all you give is a home and lots of love! We even have a trainer who works with our foster homes. Why not open your heart and home to a foster dog?!

Please fill out an application to foster today!

Thank you Peter K.!

We’d like to extend a very special THANK YOU to Peter K. for raising $493.06 for A New Chance, by asking all of his family and friends to contribute to a fund in his honor instead of purchasing him birthday gifts this year!  Peter is also the proud owner of an ANCAR pup, Quincy, adopted in February!  Thank you so much Peter; with this donation, we are able to help partially pay for the surgery Quincy’s brother had to fix his intestinal intussusception.

Thank you, Gernine!

Gernine-TucknerGernine Tuckner wears many hats at ANCAR. She is an amazing Board Member, a dynamic volunteer, a generous donor, and a nurturing foster mother. In 2015, Gernine has fostered over 20 dogs. She often takes puppies in together and works very hard to prepare them properly for their forever homes. Gernine is always welcoming and educating new volunteers and foster homes, and she makes a point to really teach each of her adopters about the responsibility of owning a dog before they consider adopting. She is passionate about the work ANCAR does and referred some friends to ANCAR to donate, foster, and adopt. Gernine is a beacon of hope for the dogs that she opens her home to who would have lost their lives without her generosity. From all of the dogs you have helped save, THANK YOU Gernine for championing for them.
