Happy 5K Friday! Today we’re talking about the first-ever Second Chance Family Reunion!
Our 2017 Racing for Rescues event marks the start of Second Chance’s 30th anniversary celebration! Since 1987, Second Chance has helped more than 12,000 cats and dogs find their forever homes, so to celebrate, we’re hosting a Family Reunion for all of the furry families Second Chance has helped create over the years.
The Family Reunion will take place on May 7, 2017 as part of Racing for Rescues. The reunion is open to all members of the Second Chance family – if you’ve volunteered with Second Chance, adopted a pet through Second Chance, receive or emails or follow us on social media, or have simply attended one of our events, you are a part of the Second Chance family!
We need your help to kick off our 30th Anniversary celebration, so bring your pets and join us at the Family Reunion, where you can:
• Receive a commemorative t-shirt (guaranteed only for those registered for Racing for Rescues or the Family Reunion by the end of the day on April 24, 2017, so register now!)
• Have your picture taken with your pet (and order a special commemorative engraving of your photo on a tin plate if you’d like!)
• Post pictures of your Second Chance pets (past and present) on our Family Tree bulletin board
• Get a free Second Chance bandanna for your pet
• Pick up brand new, limited-edition 30th Anniversary merchandise, like t-shirts, pet gear, and coffee mugs
• Share your story of adopting your animal from Second Chance or becoming a dedicated Second Chance volunteer in our video booth
• Be a part of the largest pet family photo on record!
If you’ve already registered for Racing for Rescues, then your Family Reunion registration is already complete! While we’d love to have as many people as possible running the 5K or walking the 2K courses, if you’d like to join us for the Family Reunion without participating in Racing for Rescues, all you need to do is register! If you use Facebook, why not RSVP to the Facebook event page while you’re at it to make staying up-to-date easier?
