PUPdate: Bach Gains 10 Pounds; Second Chance Animals Gain $10,000!

#GivingTuesday 2018 Scores Are In: 10/10!

Be so careful! Watch your step! The floors are wet and we’d hate for you to slip and fall. What’s this big puddle? Oh, those are just our tears of joy!


Second Chance family, you. are. BEASTS! When your energy is harnessed, nothing is impossible. We began #GivingTuesday with an initial goal of raising $5,000 for the animals and a stretch goal of $7,500. You looked at those goals and you said, “Psh! Those precious cats and dogs deserve more!” And more you sent. You donated via our website, on Facebook, through Crowdrise, and by the time the day was over, you had generously sent more than $10,000 to the stray and abandoned animals awaiting a second chance to find love. You are magical; you are powerful; you are saving lives.


With your support, Second Chance is making a difference in the lives of almost 1,000 cats and dogs annually. Yesterday morning, we introduced you to sweet little Bach, a puppy we rescued from starvation, anemia, parasites, and dehydration. Mr. Moo Cow by his side, he has been recovering from surgery, and we are thrilled to report that he is making great strides to total health. He arrived for medical clinic just a little too late to say hello in last night’s live stream, but we made sure to snap a snuggly shot of Bach hanging with one of our dedicated volunteers. He’s still got some room to grow, but this babe is on the mend: he has gained 10 pounds since we saved him!


Before long, Bach will be ready to leave his foster home and transition to his adoptive forever home. We’ll be sure to let you know when that day comes–after all, it will have been because of your love that Bach was given a second chance.


With all the thanks in the world,

Second Chance staff
