barkravingmad2nd Chance Rescue of Richmond, formerly, Roscoe’s Rescue gets a little help from local online eco-friendly pet store Bark Raving MadBark Raving Mad is donating ten percent of their online sales to one animal rescue for every month in 2014 and 2nd Chance Rescue of Richmond received a donation from their February sales and a bag full of goodies for the dogs.

2nd Chance Rescue of Richmond recently opened the rescue at 2905 US 35 N in Richmond.  New managing partners Lori Brush and Jessica Nuss are excited about having a location where potential adopters can come in to play with the cats and dogs available for adoption.  The new location is home to more than 20 cats and when not in foster homes several dogs that are ready for adoption.

Jessica Nuss shares their greatest needs are for volunteers, donations and foster pet parents for the dogs.  2nd Chance Rescue of Richmond is always looking for volunteers to clean, socialize the animals and help manage the store during open hours.  They are in need of foster pet parents to help train and socialize the dogs and it allows them to take in more dogs from high kill shelters.    2nd Chance Rescue of Richmond is dependent on donations, sponsors and grants. Donations can be made through PayPal (2nchancerescueinc@gmail.,com), by mail at PO Box 2112, or dropping it off at 2905 US 35 N.  For more information visit, www.2ndchancerescueinc.org.
