Who We Are

Andrea Moreno – Director | Operations

Andrea is the primary contact person for all Mikey’s Chance business, from dog intakes to adoption and beyond. She has been taking home stray dogs most of her life, and is particularly partial to puppies of both the canine and human variety.


Carrie Wester DeLeon – Director | Secretary

Carrie serves on the Board as Secretary, and is also the Lead on maintaining our Facebook page. Carrie, a dog lover from birth, was introduced to fostering in 2009 and immediately became hooked. She specializes in fostering our small breed dogs and is our main photographer. This is a way for her to combine her two top passions: photography and helping our rescue dogs look their best so that they will attract wonderful homes.

Courtney Berna – Director


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.
