Fashion Goes to the Dogs

Fashion Goes to the Dogs

Are dogs a fashion statement?  There are many that would say yes.  And as a dog – I can’t exactly argue that.  Fashion is often considered an outer reflection of the inner person and often times you truly can judge a person by their dog.  And I don’t mean in a judgmental way but in a way that helps you to understand or connect to a person.  Think about how you react to seeing a large man with a small dog vs when you see a large man with a large dog – it is human nature (thus not necessarily proper or accurate) to form such opinions.

Farmers & Animal Lovers Market

Farmers & Animal Lovers Market

As one of many (with the emphasis on many) cute adorable kittens here at the Second Chance Humane Society shelter in Ridgway you can probably imagine my reaction today at hearing that I was going to the Farmers Market on Friday.  I don’t care what kind of Market it is – if it has “market” in the name it is something that most animals want to avoid.  But alas, I was soon relieved of my anxiety in learning that I won’t be going there to be sold for soup but rather to be adopted into a new loving home!

No Barriers

Second Chance Humane Society has been invited to participate in the No Barriers Summit coming to Telluride August 8-11 (nobarriersusa.org/summit/). The Summit is designed to “bring together a community of participants who embrace their barriers and learn to harness them for their own good and the good of the community. It provides transformative experiences that empower people to embrace a “no barriers” mindset and discover the potential that lies within themselves and the world”.  Second Chance is excited to collaborate with this event which recognizes the importance of humanity’s partnerships with animals in helping us overcome challenges.
