Corning in the Evening, Sept 8, 2011

Second Chance Pet Rescue hosted Corning in the Evening September 8 and were the hot ticket of the evening, one of the hottest days of the year! Despite the temperature officially hitting 106° where the shelter is located, approximately 35 people came out to dine on chicken, tri-tip, salad, fruits, and desserts.

Dinner was provided by Friends of Felines founders, Mike Weiss and Sharon Novak, who donated and cooked the food and their services for the evening. Longtime supporters of Second Chance, they said they were happy to help in any way they could.

Olive Festival Fun

In late August our community celebrates its major export, olives, with a parade and a fun day at Woodson Park with vendors, food and fun. And we were there for it all!

We partnered up with US Bank who decorated their ‘racing bed’ (used for the popular bed races after the parade) to look like a train. Thanks to Skylar, our treasurer and US Bank manager; we had a top notch float for the Friday evening parade.

A Bark at the Park

Saturday, June 25, 2011, was a dog-gone great day for all who came to A Bark at the Park, 2011. Though we don’t have an actual paw count, dogs tiny, small medium, large, and extra-large attended with their owners.

About 25 Doggie IQ Tests were done, and while the dogs were scored as genius, smart, or cute, in their guardian’s eyes, each was the brightest dog in attendance.
