Second Chance is excited to announce the 14th Annual Paws in the Park! The event will be Saturday, October 7th at Stephens Lake Park from 9am – 4pm. This event is free and open to the public. Well-behaved animals on a leash are welcome to attend.

This year’s festival will once again feature the Dock Dog Diving completion, held for the second year in the lake. Second Chance is pleased to have Big Muddy Dock Dogs as our partner in this nationally promoted tournament. We will once again be hosting a Canine Carnival with games and prizes for your dog and a community-supported silent auction. Join us throughout the day to visit with local business vendors and enjoy refreshments from a selection of food trucks. A 5k race/dog jog sponsored by Tito’s Vodka will be held Sunday morning at 10am to wrap up this year’s festival.

For those interested in adding furry members to their families, Second Chance will be featuring many of our adoptable animals. 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.
