Saving the Stray and Abandoned One Dog at a Time
Dogs 2nd Chance is excited to announce the date for our 8th annual Mutt Strut 5k is October 12th, 2024. The run/walk will be at a new location. It will begin and end at the Rainbow Lake Pavilion in Overton Park located in Memphis Tn.
Mutt Strut 5K is our core yearly fundraiser. Our past races have been very successful. Since we began allowing participants to bring their dogs as running partners, we have outgrown the previous race location due to parking issues. Our projections for this year are to have 100 dogs and 250 human participants.
Dogs’ 2nd Chance is a local, Memphis area, 501[c] public charity. We spay or neuter, microchip, vaccinate, treat parvo and other deadly diseases, including heart worms. We also work to facilitate life changing orthopedic surgeries for our dogs in need. No dog is ever turned away due to breed or medical needs, only lack of space.
Our goal is to find forever homes for each dog in addition to raising awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering pets. We work to promote responsible pet care and aid in the search for owners of lost dogs.
Dogs’ 2nd Chance is not a shelter and receives no government funding. Our adoption fees barely cover costs for a healthy dog that is with us only a short time. We depend on donations and fundraisers to further our mission. We are all volunteers, and all proceeds go to the care of the dogs.
Thank you for considering our request. We are seeking sponsorships of all levels including non-monetary donations. All donations go directly towards rescuing the lives of dogs that may perish on their own or euthanized in shelters not knowing the love of a family.
