Second Chance Animal Center to host Holiday Open House

SHAFTSBURY — Second Chance Animal Center will host their annual Holiday Open House on Saturday, Dec. 9, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

"Second Chance Animal Center provides important community services throughout the year, and as the holidays approach we enjoy the opportunity to celebrate our accomplishments with our supporters," said Cathi Comar, Executive Director. "We have several activities planned for the day, and we look forward to updating everyone on the progress of our new Arlington facility."

The Holiday Open House will be held at Second Chance's current facility, located at 6779 VT Route 7A in Shaftsbury, Vermont. There will be fun activities for everyone including a scavenger hunt and prizes for kids, sugar cookies to decorate and eat, workshops to create holiday cards, stations to make pet toys for your furry family members, a hot chocolate bar to warm the day, and even a chance to have your photograph taken with Santa "Paws" to print and frame.

If you are looking for a holiday gift for your pet, Second Chance has (new) animal beds, dog collars, and other items available for purchase. We will also have raffle tickets available for an Orvis dog bed, valued at over $200, and the winning ticket will be pulled at the close of the event.
