American Humane Offers Animals at Second Chance a Second Chance


In the line of a wildfire in Flagstaff, AZ, Second Chance Animal Shelter was forced to move on Monday, to evacuate about 180 animals.

A grant from the American Humane Association has made it possible to relocate the animals to safety, and to provide for their care. 

Coconino Humane Association in Flagstaff was first evacuated due to the
fire last Friday, and Second Chance Center for Animals took their
animals. Now that both shelters have been evacuated, the temporary
shelter is caring for all of the shelter animals in the area. The
shelter continues to need supplies and volunteers during this emergency
sheltering effort, which is expected to last for days or weeks.

Many of the shelter volunteers had to evacuate their own homes. While the fires continue to burn, so far, no homes have been destroyed and no lives lost. Although, some residents are very concerned because pets have been left inside homes, which in some cases can’t be returned to for another day or more.
