The Most Impactful Way to Save Lives

Many shelters euthanize adoptable, loving pets each day just because there isn’t enough room for them. Overcrowded, underfunded shelters are faced with the problem of too many pets and not enough demand.

Whereas, in other parts of the country there is too much demand. Families are left waiting for their local shelters and rescues to have new pets available for adoption. This is a depressing dilemma for any animal lover to learn about.

Yet, there is one straightforward, impactful way to save these shelter animals’ lives and a very easy way for anyone to help out.

The simple solution is to move these adoptable dogs and cats to areas where there is more demand and not enough supply. A handful of non-profit organizations exist solely to transport death row pets to high-demand, low-supply areas. Those waiting families in other locations will snatch ’em up in just a matter of days. These pets might have been euthanized within that same period of time if they were not been rescued. By road and by air they make their way from imminent death to a happy life filled with love.

When the staff learned about these amazing charities, we knew we needed to contribute in a big way. That’s why we launched the Second Chance Movement ™. Each and every purchase of a Second Chance Movement collection product funds travel miles towards a trip that could save well over a hundred innocent lives.

It’s the most impactful way you can help out. These make fantastic, meaningful gifts for yourself or anyone else!
