Caring for Castaways

Saving the Stray and Abandoned One Dog at a Time

555 Egypt Road Munford, Tennessee 38058


We are excited to announce that we will be holding our 7th annual Mutt Strut 5k this year on October 14th.

The run/walk will begin and end at the East Parkway Pavilion in Overton Park.

Our past races have been very successful, raising upwards of $3,000 towards the rescue and care of stray, abandoned and abused dogs and puppies.

We have seen a consistent increase in participants each year starting at 180 in our first year.

Last year was our first year to allow dogs to participate and we had 50 dogs sign up. We hope to have 100 dogs and 250 participants sign up this year.

Mutt Strut 5K is our core fundraiser we have every year.

We would not be able to continue the work we do, saving the stray, abandoned and abused dogs & puppies without sponsors like you supporting us.

Dogs 2nd Chance is a local, Memphis area, 501[c][3] public charity.

We are a mixed breed dog rescue group.

We have saved over 1,400 lives_since our inception in September 2007.

We spay or neuter, microchip, vaccinate and treat parvo and other deadly diseases, including heartworms.

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 nominal adoption fee barely covers a healthy dog that is with us short term.

We depend on donations and fundraisers to further our mission of saving precious lives.

We are all volunteers. No one is paid and all proceeds go to the care of the dogs.

I have included information on the sponsorship opportunities.

All sponsors will be invited to set up a tent and table in the shady area near the pavilion. Once the race is completed, medals & prizes are awarded, and refreshments will be served under the main pavilion.

Thank you for considering our request.

We are seeking sponsorships of all levels including non-fiscal. No donation is too small and is greatly cherished.

We are also seeking donations of bananas, clementines, bottled water, cookies and dog snacks for our participants on race day.

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.
