We host mission driven community events year round, scroll below to see what's next.
Join us during Ridgway's Noel Night as we open up the Ridgway Thrift Shop for shopping and host Paws for Art in the adjacent building (our admin offices)!
Shop for second chances from 5-9 pm!
Paws for Art is a touring sale of the best artwork donations to our Thrift Shops. This allows art collectors, or those just looking for something new for their homes, a better opportunity to view these amazing pieces. It also allows us to get better prices for these donations - which go directly toward our life saving animal welfare programs and services.
Paws for Art is always seeking a new venues to take its traveling art sale of donated art. Contact us if you would like to host this life-saving fundraiser of fabulous art at fabulous prices!
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.View Episode 1 View Episode 2
If you missed this event please come by and see the Memorial Gardens 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 not 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.
