Holiday Open House at Second Chance
Second Chance Animal Center today announced the date of their annual Holiday Open House. The event will take place on Saturday, December 10, from 12-2 p.m. “Second Chance Animal Center pro-vides important community services throughout the year, and as the holidays approach we love to celebrate our accomplishments with our supporters,” said Cathi Comar, Executive Director. “This annual event gives us the opportunity to open the shelter for behind-the-scenes tours and thank everyone for their efforts on behalf of companion animals throughout Bennington County.” The Holiday Open House will take place at Second Chance’s facility, located at 6779 VT Route 7A in Shaftsbury. After touring the shelter, attendees are encouraged to help us decorate our holiday tree by creating star ornaments displaying images of the over 500 shelter animals that have come through our doors in 2016. The official tree lighting will take place at the close of the event. Second Chance will also provide activities for kids, festive refreshments, and cookies for you to decorate and eat! If you are look-ing for fun holiday pet gift ideas, there will be cat toys, dog toys, and small animal carriers available for purchase, donated for fundraising purposes by Petlinks Inc.
