Second Chance Baby Shower!

My name is Buffett (named after some guy who sings about Margaritas and beaches) and I would like to invite all of you to participate in my Baby Shower!  It is being sponsored by the Second Chance Humane Society Shelter for the 28 kittens, like myself, who are temporarily residing here in preparation for our adoptions.  Before we can be adopted we need our vaccinations, microchips, spay/neuter surgeries, and a great deal of daily care, this is where the Baby Shower comes in…

Second Chance has teamed up again with Denver-based The Wags And Menace Foundation (www.wagsandmenace.org) to raise money and supplies for all the kitten and puppy litters at the Shelter.  The Wags And Menace Foundation President, Cindy Lee, (and CEO – Baxter the dog) generously pledged matching funds for all donations to this special Baby Shower.  What a great opportunity for animal lovers to make a difference! 

How much you contribute to the Baby Shower is optional but with matching funds from Wags & Menace your contribution will have double the impact.  For example, when donating half the costs for a kitten spay/neuter surgery and vaccination ($40), The Wags And Menace Foundation will contribute the rest.  (Another example would be that by donating $80 two kittens will be spay/neutered and vaccinated after the matching funds are applied,) Whatever you decide to contribute – it will make a big difference for the young and loveable Shelter “babies” such as me.

Once we are all ready for adoption, the issue of there being so many of us seeking loving forever homes will remain.  Thus, Second Chance is offering two kitten adoptions for the price of one for the month of August.  When adopting kittens there are many positive reasons to adopt two rather than one, (constant companionship for the adoptees being a big one) and this opportunity makes a double adoption very affordable. 

Although all the latest litters of puppies have been recently adopted, Second Chance is accepting donations for puppy litters too, as it won’t be long before there are more puppies also in need of medical care, food, and shelter.  You can also donate toys, treats, and bedding for puppies and kittens or you can donate funds directly on-line at www.secondchancehumanesociety.org (or call 626.2273 for more information).

This may be a great time to offer a reminder of the Second Chance Spay/Neuter Financial Assistance Program.  This program provides financial assistance to those unable to afford the cost of spay/neutering your pets, just contact Second Chance about obtaining a voucher.  28 homeless kittens is the largest number ever received at the Shelter and only through prevention will this not happen again.

Call the Second Chance Helpline at 626-2273 to report a lost pet, learn about adopting a homeless pet, or about the SCHS Spay/Neuter Financial Assistance, Volunteer & Foster Care, or other Programs.   Direct Pet Column questions to:  kelly@secondchancehumanesociety.orgPhoto by Real Life Photographs.
