• Events

  • We have many events throughout the year, and these give us a chance to celebrate with you our common love for dogs and cats. At many events, we’ll have dogs there for you to meet, and some events are open to your dogs too (especially if you adopted a Second Chance Dog!) It’s fun to meet the volunteers, meet other adopters, and meet other animal owners. Mark your calendar, or sign up for our newsletter, and you’ll be alerted to each event a few weeks in advance.  Come join us!!
