Wine & Whiskers is an event not to be missed!secondchancelogo-2.jpg

From fashion shows and live music, to great food and fun, it doesn't feel at all like a fundraiser for our furry friends!

The weekend of March 10 - March 13, 2016 is sure to be yet another fantastic celebration, filled with music, laughter and great times for all!

wineandwhyiskers.2.jpg As the region’s only animal shelter, Second Chance Humane Society is a private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization serving San Miguel, Ouray and Montrose Counties with animal rescue and animal welfare programs.  Second Chance does not euthanize adoptable pets for time or space and provides rehabilitative services for homeless pets with physical, emotional, and behavioral issues so that they can be adopted into loving forever homes.

wineandwiskersposter.jpg The Mission of Second Chance is "Saving Animal’s Lives and Promoting Responsible Pet Parenting and the Human-Animal Bond".  Fundraising events like Wine & Whiskers enable their efforts and they depend upon strong community support from their broad service area. In addition to re-homing pets, Second Chance offers a variety of programs and services to the area, including low cost spay/neuter clinics, puppy trainig classes, and community awareness programs.

Thursday March 10th from 6:30-8:30 PM: Opening Night Mixer featuring the Fashion Cabaret combining fashion (straight from the Second Chance Thrift Shop), dance, and music for a high energy performance.  A silent auction and light fare round out the evening.

Saturday March 12th (5:30 pm - midnight): Gala Event which includes delectable catered fare, silent & live auctions, the Fashion Cabaret - all concluding with a dance party.

Tickets are $15 in advance for Thursday night ($20 at the door) and $40 in advance ($45/door) for Saturday night.  Both events occur at Ouray County Event Center in Ridgway.
