As a fellow animal rescuer and former vice president of a rescue I have been supremely impressed with A Chance to Bloom Dog Rescue in Houston. I have seen nothing but ethical and humane rescue from this group since the start. They are knowledgeable dog people who place dogs with the utmost care. Not only that but they never hesitate to take on medically needy dogs or breeds that other rescues are resistant to pull. My Houston Pit Bull and I give ACTB 2 big thumbs and paws up!
I adopted Billy now Brody. This rescue and Barbara are amazing. We found the perfect match for our home and the exact dog we were looking for. We have babies a teen and several pups and two cats in our home.
My son is special needs so also had to be a calm happy dog not afraid of screaming or tantrums.
I couldn’t ask for more from FaceTimes with him to the transport from Houston to Washington State.
Thank you for our newest addition. We love Brody sooo much!!
A Chance to Bloom is an amazing, ethical rescue. All those involved with the rescue have 0 ego; they consistently act in the best interests of the dogs in their care. They take dogs that would never make it out of shelters or are abandoned on the streets of Houston and turn them in to beloved, beautiful family pets. Not only are they caring and generous, ACTB is extremely knowledgeable about various conditions and ailments that dogs may have. They’re always willing to learn new things and get multiple opinions. Even when they are strapped with severe medical cases, they always find time to help dogs in need. Truly an all-around stellar group of people working to give voice to the voiceless!
A Chance to Bloom is one of the best rescues in the Houston area. I have been working with them over the past year and seeing first hand the challenging and most desperate cases they bring in shows me how caring and committed they are to helping those in need. Some of the dogs I see I can't believe the transformations that take place in just a few months, it's amazing! They care deeply for the dogs in their care and ensure they always get adopted to the best home. Thank you ACTB for all you do!!
The best foster fail I ever had came from A Chance To Bloom. After he wasn't a fit for an adoptive family in Indianapolis, IN, I agreed to pick Duval up and foster him here in Central Kentucky until a suitable adopter could be found. This was in February. It is now almost Halloween and I'm busy trying to decide what Duvie (as he was affectionately named at ACTB) Is going to be dresses as. He has definitely bloomed here, the training he received at ACTB and whatever he had known as a stray made him an excellent fit in my house already full of dogs (10 and counting) he is an amazing ambassador of his breed, He is a bully breed. The care that the rescue took in insuring that he was in good hands amazed me, the follow up on his wellbeing astounded me and I am proud to have "failed with this wonderful, loving, boy. He even does a "Duvie dance" for me every day for treats which he must have learned at A Chance To Bloom. I'm totally smitten with this boy who could never have bloomed into the amazing dog that he is without the hope and the chance that he was given by A Chance To Bloom. I will do my best not to foster any more dogs from them in the near future, my house can only hold so many...for now.
A Chance to Bloom stands up for the dogs who have no more chances left at the shelter. A Chance to Bloom is an amazing nonprofit that we have had the privilege of working with over the past 3 years. Jessica and Will and the rest of their staff have rescued hundreds of dogs from Montgomery County Animal Shelter, a high kill shelter, who had no more chances left. Without hesitation, they adopt dogs with multiple, serious medical issues who have been passed over at the shelter and have no more time left. They provide the obvious things: food, a warm soft bed to sleep, medical treatment. But the most important ingredient that has healed so many dogs is their unconditional Love. We have watched dogs make incredible transformations under A Chance to Bloom's care and have witnessed what a huge difference a small group of dedicated volunteers can do when they so deeply about these abandoned animals.

Incredible people doing incredible things. Jessica and Will are all stars - they run an amazing doggie daycare; rescue and foster dogs; and pour an immense amount of time into this great organization. A Chance to Bloom gives dogs the second chance they deserve. They provide the dogs with food, medical care, and love. They then place the dogs with loving families.
