Second Chance Humane Society celebrates 6th Annual Wine and Whiskers at Ouray County 4-H Event Center!

second chance logoEvery year, Second Chance Humane Society works to preserve and better the lives of animals all across the Western Slope. Since opening doors in Ridgway in 1194, the Second Chance Humane Society has saved thousands of pets in Ouray and San Miguel Counties. With the support of these two communities, they have been able to move their facilities to a large ranch outside of Ridgway, which offers the space to extend the number of animals they can take in.

As this non-profit organization grows, much through donations and volunteers, still it needs help. With fund raising events throughout the year, awareness of both the success of Second Chance, and its growing needs are made public. Of course, because Second Chance is about finding forever homes, which is a happy event, their fund raising efforts are certainly geared toward the joys of life, which are enhanced by that special dog, cat or hamster in every persons life.

The Second Chance Thrift Shop, located in downtown Ridgway is a huge source of income for the Humane Society, as well as a great place to view photos of the most recent possibilities for new members of your home.

The Wine and Whiskers Gala is somewhat new on the fund raising front, but has also achieved enormous results. Each year, the festivities get bigger and better, and this year, the have gotten so big, Second Chance has decided to spread the fun over two days. This way, everyone will get a chance to enjoy all of the fun there is to be had while serving a great cause!
