CHELSEA'S CHARIOT INC.
A Registered 501c3 Public Charity
By rescuing pregnant or nursing strays, we give their puppies a healthy start from the very beginning which aids in breaking the cycle of homelessness and preventable illnesses. The puppies are then socialized by those often overlooked by the community. Children, the elderly, and the developmentally disABLEd work with the puppies to socialize them and train them in basic obedience. This makes the puppies more adoptable and helps to empower those who have so much love to offer! It’s a WIN/WIN!
Updated 8/11/23 See Facebook for most current information.
All of our adoptable pets are fully vaccinated, on prevention, and are spayed/neutered (unless too young).
Adults: $175 Puppies: $250

WHAT WE DO
DISCONTINUED until further notice.
Chelsea's Chariot still provides high quality transport services. We also provide boarding and fostering services. Chelsea and her fur sister Charli both work in an elementary school as comfort animals.
We currently use two different support animals (Chelsea and Charli) as well as many of our rescues for our summer reading program at our community library. This help build reading skills, foster a growth mindset, and provide social-emotional support for readers of all ages
FOSTERING AND BOARDING
We have had several successful fosters over the years and enjoy having furry guests stay with us. We have a large fenced backyard with plenty of grass and shade trees. While in our care they are treated as one of our own. We also offer a "Puppy Prep" where young pups learn the ropes from more experienced K-9s. Some of the skills addressed are crate training, house-breaking, socialization with other dogs and cats, as well as basic commands.
We have partnered with 3 public libraries in our surrounding communities to offer a literacy program using our rescues. We also visit senior living facilities to brighten their day, as well as Gateway Community Partners. They serve cognitively and physically disabled adults.
