Become a Wildlife Partner
Our Wildlife Partners are a special group of supporters who pledge to make a small monthly contribution for three consecutive years which allows us to save lives. Not only do these regular contributions provide necessary resources to feed our babies, or operate on broken limbs, but it allows us the ability to form some type of stable budget. Each month, your credit card will be charged the amount in which you choose. You can also choose to cancel your monthly commitment at any time.
How does this type of contribution benefit you? By offering a small monthly gift, the impact on you and your family is very minimal, but it is a huge blessing to our animals. Whatever agrees with your ability is very helpful and appreciated. Our EIN is 270550327 for your end-of-year tax deductions.
Is Your Company Interested in Becoming a Corporate Sponsor?
Corporate sponsors are important partners with Second Chances. These businesses allow us to maintain a reliable budget and care for more animals and educate more people. Corporate sponsors may choose what they feel is an appropriate gift. We welcome these businesses to help out in fun special events. In return for their financial generosity, we award them with special tours and all the recognition we can give: word of mouth, website, plaque, and newsletter recognition. It’s a great way for your business to become more involved in our community! It’s a crucial means of our sustainability.
The Starfish Story
Original Story by: Loren Eisley
One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed
a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.
Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”
The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean.
The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish?
You can’t make a difference!”
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish,
and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said…”
I made a difference for that one.”
