Who We Are

Jessey Bement – Director | Secretary

Jessey serves on the Board as director and secretary. She started volunteering when she went back to school to complete her degree, and soon found a passion for being involved with rescue. She has become our resident “dog whisperer” and has an endless supply of love to give each dog that comes through our rescue.


Cherisa Masters – Director

Cherisa serves on the Board as a director. She started volunteering with Mikey’s Chance in early 2017 after adopting from them. She works on keeping both the website and PetFinder site up to date. She has been an avid animal lover her whole life and has always found a way to help ones in need.


Mikey’s Chance was founded around October 2008 by Jim and Valerie Landon and Cheryl Canaday. It was formally incorporated on January 4, 2009, with the founders as directors for its first five years in operation. They established Mikey’s Chance because they saw a need for a rescue that gave priority to ensuring the best possible match between dogs in need and their forever families.
