Second Chance Founder Calls for Change to Help Homeless Pets in Massachusetts 
Petition Seeks to Remove Unnecessary Burden from Massachusetts Shelters
EAST BROOKFIELD, MA (March 6, 2023) – Second Chance Animal Services CEO and founder Sheryl Blancato is leading the charge to change state regulations that place an unfair burden on Massachusetts animal shelters. Massachusetts is the only state that requires shelters to isolate pets from out of state for 48 hours even though they come in with health certificates. The quarantine period is a huge financial burden for shelters and is contrary to national best practices, causing undue stress on these pets with longer hold times in isolation before being allowed to be put up for adoption. Blancato authored an online petition to change regulations which has already received over 3,000 signatures.
In the petition, Blancato states, “It’s time to help homeless pets in MA by demanding that the state follow the ASV (Association of Shelter Veterinarians) national best practice standards and stop burdening shelters with regulations that go against what is national best practices so we can get more homeless pets in homes.”
Blancato also noted another major hurdle to helping homeless pets. “Pet supply stores generously offer free adoption centers within their buildings so shelters can bring in rescue animals to promote their adoption, but the Massachusetts Department of Agriculture treats the animals as if they are now owned by the pet supply stores, requiring shelters to pay for a vet exam every 7 days instead of what is in the shelter regulations. These animals do not become pet supply store owned animals simply by being brought into the building. No pet that has already been deemed healthy and ready for adoption needs to go to the vets every 7 days (instead of every 180 as is required in the shelter regulations). This puts another unnecessary burden on shelters for financial costs. These wonderful adoption centers in these stores are often a lifeline for shelter pets to get seen and adopted!”
Blancato encourages animal lovers to read and sign the petition and contact local legislators. “We could help many more pets if Massachusetts was like every other state in the country that welcomes homeless pets into the state with a health certificate. These health certificates are issued by a veterinarian and state that the pet is healthy and can travel. Every other state in the country accepts this without the burden of a 48 hour hold except Massachusetts.”

Hundreds of Items Up for Bid in Second Chance Dinner Auction
Annual Fundraiser to Help Homeless Shelter Pets
EAST BROOKFIELD, MA (March 2, 2023) – What do a modern grandfather clock, a bowling party for twelve at Splitsville in Patriot’s Place, and Wachusett Mountain lift tickets have in common? All three will be up for bid at Second Chance Animal Services’ 24th Annual Dinner Auction. The fundraiser will be held on Saturday, March 25th at the Southbridge Hotel & Conference Center and all proceeds will help homeless shelter pets get the veterinary care they need to begin their new lives.  
Chief Development Officer Lindsay Doray said local businesses and animal lovers have been very generous this year. “We have some fantastic auction items this year from beautiful gift baskets to a week’s stay at a private apartment in Le Suquet – the charming, old quarter of Cannes, France."
Doray notes that ticket sales have been brisk this year and she encourages everyone to get their tickets soon. The event will begin at 4pm with hundreds of items up for bid or raffle during cocktails. Dinner will be served at 6pm followed by a live auction featuring a selection of premium items and the closing of the silent auction. 
This year, a selection of gift cards and small, easy-to-ship items donated for the auction will be available for advance online bidding beginning Friday, March 17th Online bidding will end Friday, March 24th at 1pm so the committee can prepare for the event. “Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on many, many event-exclusive items and outbid any online bids until the auction closes,” according to Doray who encourages supporters make plans to attend the popular event.
Second Chance is still welcoming sponsors and item donations to help make the dinner auction a success. “Year after year, our local businesses are always generous in their support of this important event,” added Doray. The annual dinner auction is Second Chance’s largest and most important fundraiser. This year’s event will help medically needy shelter pets get the care they need from vaccines to lifesaving surgeries. Second Chance takes in sick or injured pets that may be turned away from other shelters due to the cost of providing their veterinary care.
For anyone interested in sponsoring, donating an item, or attending the 24th Annual Dinner Auction, complete information and tickets can be found at
PHOTOS: All proceeds from the 24th Annual Dinner Auction will provide care for shelter pets like Acre (L) and Dorito (R) so they can get the second chance they deserve.

Maple Days at Old Sturbridge Village
Select dates through Sunday, March 19, 2023

For many at Old Sturbridge Village, the first whiff of spring isn’t the aroma of spring flowers – it’s the smell of wood smoke and maple syrup, a sure sign that the sap is rising and spring is on the way. Join us for “Maple Days” on select dates in February and March, when the Village’s working sugar camp demonstrates maple sugaring as it was done in early 19th-century New England.

See the entire sugar-making process, from tapping the trees to “sugaring off,” and learn why maple sugar was more commonly used than maple syrup in early New England. Costumed historians will also cook period foods made with maple products and the tinner and cooper will make maple-related items. VISIT THIS LINK FOR INFO AND TICKETS.
