Rancho Coastal Humane Society’s ‘Celebration of Second Chances’


Supporters gathered Sept. 7 for the Rancho Coastal Humane Society’s Celebration of Second Chances fundraiser.

The event, which was held at the Del Mar Country Club, helps support all of Rancho Coastal Humane Society’s programs and services for people and animals, including the Pet Assisted Therapy program, Animal Safehouse program, animal camps, dog park and more.

One of the organization’s newest programs is the Community Pet Food Bank, which provides food and other supplies for people on fixed incomes, the sick and disabled, working families that struggle financially, and the homeless. The food bank, which launched last November, serves about 140 people per month.

Last year’s gala raised more than $80,000, for the organization, which found homes for 800 dogs, cats and rabbits in 2012.
