    If you’ve ever shared your life with a pet, you know: love changes everything. The love you share with a pet doesn’t just change your life. It can change the world for animals, which is why, the Petco Foundation and Second Chance Pet Adoptions are inviting the public to adopt this weekend at Petco.

    Second Chance will have adoptable cats at the Petco located at 416 Crossroads Blvd. in Cary from 11am to 1pm (both Saturday and Sunday) for the Petco Foundation’s national adoption weekend. This weekend is part of the Petco Foundation’s national Love Changes Everything campaign which aims to raise more than $3 million to help pets in need all across the nation.

    The Petco Foundation, in partnership with thousands of local animal welfare organizations nationwide, has helped unite more than five million pets with loving families through adoptions in Petco stores. Additionally, the Foundation has invested more than $175 million since 1999 in lifesaving animal welfare organizations in communities across the country.

    For more information about Second Chance or the Petco Foundation, visit www.secondchancenc.org or www.petcofoundation.org. Join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or by using the hashtags #ThinkAdoptionFirst and #LoveChangesEverything.

    ***March 18 update: Sorry all, but the Canes have had to cancel this event due to the rain! Second Chance will still be in the arena during the game tonight (find us near section 129!) and the Canes will still be accepting donations at the door, but please be advised there is no South Plaza Party and we will not have adoptable animals with us. So sorry and hope to see you on the inside!

    The Carolina Hurricanes will be throwing pre-game parties presented by Brüeprint Brewing Company on the South Plaza of PNC Arena for select home games during the 2016-17 season. On the final day of the pet supply drive benefitting Second Chance Pet Adoptions the week of March 13-18, Second Chance will be out at the South Plaza Party with some adoptable animals! The party will also include live music, an inflatable obstacle course, moon bounce, street hockey, the slap shot booth, food and beverage, and interactive sponsor booths. New for the 2016-2017 season will be a new section of the plaza geared toward adults that includes cornhole, Kan Jam, Hockey Sauce Kits, giant Jenga, ladder ball, giant checkers and more. Each party starts two hours before game time, so get there early!
