Changing Lives … One Tail at a Time …

Off to a Great Start!

November 1st marks the kick-off of our new Home for the Holidays Program. We have just received word that a loyal supporter has stepped forward and agreed to match up to $1,000 in donations we receive from the public through the end of December!

Holidays are a time of joy, but not so for the many sweet dogs who are routinely euthanized in Southern shelters just days before Christmas in advance of the shelters closing for the holidays. The goal of the Home for the Holiday Program is to help as many homeless dogs as we can experience the joys of love in a real home during this holiday season.

Right now, we are busy selecting new dogs from the shelters and hope to have them in our area within several weeks. To provide temporary homes for them when they arrive, we need to have more foster families. Would you consider opening up your home and heart this holiday season?

Another way to give meaningfully this season is to be a part of our supply drive. We need food and toys for our newly rescued dogs. We also need donations to help pay for medical expenses of our dogs.

Here are some suggestions of needed items:

Blue Buffalo Chicken and Brown Rice – puppy and adult dry food
Taste of the Wild Pacific Fish – puppy and adult dry food
Fromm – puppy, adult and grain-free

Wobblers of all sizes
Nyla Bones – all shapes, flavors and sizes
Puppy toys – all varieties
All toys

Also needed are wire or plastic crates, puppy pens, dog beds and covers.

If you choose to order items online, Old Salem Farm will accept all supplies donated to us via UPS only. The address to use for online donation orders is: A New Chance Animal Rescue, c/o Old Salem Farm, 190 June Road, North Salem, NY 10560. If time is of the essence (and we know how busy everyone gets!), please email us at and we will work with you to make other arrangements.

This holiday season, thank you for giving a homeless dog a new chance!
