A New Chance Animal Rescue (ANCAR) is a local 501 c3 volunteer-based organization which operates on a foster home model. Founded in 2011 by teenaged Sophia Silverman, ANCAR is built on the the strong belief that placing a dog in a foster home is the best way to help that dog prepare for a happy life in a forever home. Every single home willing to foster is another life saved. 

Volunteers from this group rescue from areas in need, and have recently made several trips to the hurricane ravaged Carolinas, delivering supplies and bringing rescue dogs to Westchester.
