We are very excited to announce the 16th Annual Paws in the Park! The event is now one day on Saturday, September 21st, at Stephens Lake Park from 12pm -7pm.

As you know, Second Chance’s mission is to rescue and rehome homeless pets in our community. Our Adopt Foster Educate motto will be evident throughout this year’s event. We introduced a walking information tour a few years ago and will expand it this year. Also, we’ll have opportunities to “Ask the Trainer” and “Ask the Vet” this year.  In addition to education, we’ll also have lots of fun! Our Canine Carnival will be returning, and we’ll be expanding it this year and will have a few games for those who don’t bring their animals out to the park. As in years past, there will be a 5K run this year on Saturday evening, plenty of food vendors, and lots of business vendors as well. A community supported silent auction will start on Saturday morning and end Saturday afternoon. We’re actively seeking items or opportunities for experiences for our auction!

For those interested in adding furry members to their families, Second Chance will have many of our animals available for adoption. We also want to promote the good work of our fellow animal welfare organization, so we are inviting other rescues and shelters to bring their animals ready for adoption.

As always, the key to a successful Paws in the Park is YOU! Since we do not charge admission to this event, we rely on our vendors to provide a fabulous experience at the park. We offer your team an opportunity for community interaction geared specifically to all things pet and the people who love them. There are several levels of sponsorship for you to consider that will be mutually beneficial.

Vendor participation is what makes Paws in the Park one of the premier pet events in the community!   It is our sincere hope you will participate. If you have any questions or if we can help in any way as we prepare for the 2019 Paws in the Park, please do not hesitate to contact us. On behalf of the animals we save, thank you for the ongoing support of Second Chance and for your future partnership with our 2019 Paws in the Park!

Can’t sponsor, but you’ve got a great auction gift or other in-kind donations to give? Contact us at director@columbia2ndchance.org and tell us about it!
