Second Chance Center for Animals, the only organization in Arizona that exclusively “rescues from the rescues,” announced today that in June, 2016 the organization adopted 109 homeless dogs and cats into new homes, more animals than in any other month in the 12-year history of the agency.
According to the organization’s new Executive Director, Sean Hawkins, “our new vision for Second Chance Center for Animals is to create a Northern Arizona community where every dog and cat has a home, and to that end we are committed to helping more animals than ever before.” “One of the most important new programs in support of our new vision is our partnership with Coconino Humane Association where we have agreed to accept adoptable and treatable dogs and cats from that organization to prevent needless euthanasia of animals here in Flagstaff,” Hawkins added.
A total of 73 cats and 36 dogs were adopted into new homes by Second Chance Center for Animals in June, which was also National Adopt-a-Cat Month. In addition to ongoing off-site pet adoptions at Petco in Flagstaff, Second Chance Center for Animals also initiated off-site cat adoptions at Canyon Pet Hospital, 1054 East Old Canyon Court, Flagstaff, AZ 86001 during June. “It’s important to all of our veterinarians and staff that we help animal rescue organizations in the community,” says Chris Miller, Co-Owner of Canyon Pet Hospital. “We are thrilled to partner with Second Chance Center for Animals by making space in our hospital lobby available for adoptable cats to find a home.”
Purina, Kingsmark Kennels, Beaver Street Brewery, Lumberyard, and Mountain Mojo are just a few of the additional community businesses who have also partnered with Second Chance Center for Animals in the organization’s mission to save the lives of even more homeless dogs and cats.
Continuing to launch new programs to save more animal lives, Second Chance Center for Animals has again partnered with Petco in Flagstaff, 5047 East Marketplace Dr., Flagstaff, AZ 86004, for the first Summer Adopt-a-thon being held Saturday and Sunday, July 9 and 10, 2016 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm both days. All dogs, cats, puppies and kittens will be available for the reduced adoption fee of $50, PLUS Petco is including over $300 in coupons and discounts for pet supplies and services with every animal adopted. Purina is also sending home a supply of dog or cat food with every adoption for FREE. All animals adopted have been examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and microchipped.
