Calling Dog Walkers, Kitty Cuddlers, Gardeners, and Organizers
Second Chance Center for Animals is announcing its commitment to creating a community where every dog and cat has a home by being a leader in the solutions to ending euthanasia of adoptable pets. The organization is calling on residents of Flagstaff and Coconino County, Arizona to help by participating in the Saving More Lives Community Call to Action on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Flagstaff Medical Center McGee Auditorium, located at 1200 N Beaver St, Flagstaff, AZ 86001. (Please use the West Campus Main Entrance and the meeting room is on the 1st floor.)
“The problem of animal homelessness is greater than we can solve on our own,” says Sean Hawkins, Executive Director of Second Chance Center for Animals, a non-profit animal rescue organization supported by donations. “We have agreed to start accepting more animals at risk for euthanasia from Coconino Humane Association, the agency that houses unwanted dogs and cats for city and county animal services. We are going to do our part to help more homeless animals and we are asking for the community to help by stepping up to volunteer their time and talents to save more lives.”
The Saving More Lives Community Call to Action meeting is an opportunity for potential volunteers to learn about helping homeless animals in four specific areas at Second Chance Center for Animals; Open Paw, a program that turns the shelter into a community education and training center for animals, Offsite Adoptions and Special Events to help more animals find homes, Kitten Savers Brigade to provide foster care for orphaned and underage kittens, and a new Enrichment Garden to grow fresh vegetables for chewing and herbs for scent activities for shelter pets while they are waiting for their forever homes.
Leaders from each program area will provide an overview about volunteer needs and opportunities.
“Our goal for the Call to Action meeting is share with the community how Second Chance Center for Animals is re-doubling its effort to save the lives of more dogs and cats and to ask potential community volunteers to learn how they can help,” Hawkins said. Sign-up opportunities and training for each area will be provided.
