Second Chance Rescues 200 Dogs in 2016! (And sends 298 cats home, too!)

Second Chance Pet Adoptions had a fabulous 2016:


We sent over 450 animals to their forever homes;

We added a new staff position and a new staff member;

We enhanced our Evening of Pawsibilities auction with mobile bidding (and a photo booth!) and our Art to the Rescue auction with online bidding;

We raised over $20,000 with our Racing for Rescues 5K, our most successful race yet (save the date: the 2017 event is May 7!);

We launched our corporate sponsorship program and secured the reliable support provided by four sponsors (Dogtopia of Raleigh, Care First Animal Hospital, BottleMixx, and Triangle Law Group);

Last month, we received a Petco Foundation grant to install bigger and better kitty condos at the Center in 2017;

We returned to our favorite places for events (like Raleigh Brewing Company) and forged new connections (like with Bottle Revolution) for fun and fantastic fundraisers that we look forward to repeating in 2017!

On the eve of our 30th birthday, we are so proud of how far we have come and so thankful to all of you who have made it possible! We are excited for the year to come and can’t wait to share our plans with you…but we can only make 2017 our best year yet with your help!

Thank you and we hope you and yours have a wonderful new year!
