View video about Chance, the severely injured pit bull who was found near death by the side of a road and nursed back to health at BrightSide in 2013. He became a shining example of BrightSide’s commitment to saving every animal we can. BrightSide won a $25,000 grant in recognition of this life-saving work. Chance now is healthy and happy with his adopter in Idaho.
