Stop by and see the Memorial Gardens at our shelter property during our public hours (Tuesday through Sunday 11AM - 6 PM). It is a beautiful space and we want our whole community to experience it.
It is never too late to create a lasting remembrance to your faithfully departed pets (or loved ones who were dedicated to their pets). Engraved plaques and granite markers for placement in the garden are available all year.
1.3 million people nationwide were able to take a look at some of Second Chance Humane Society’s outreach services when the most watched series on the Animal Planet Channel, Dr. Jeff Rocky Mountain Vet, partnered with Second Chance to provide free spay-neuter and medical clinics in Nucla and Ridgway. The episodes (links below) aired this past summer.
78 pets went through the spay/neuter clinics and additional pets also received special medical care (from pulling rotten teeth to removing masses and treating ear infections). All services were provided free of charge with the exception of a $5 charge for vaccinations.
It was a pleasure to work with this team of veterinarians who clearly embrace an incredible passion for saving lives through spay/neuter programming.
