Second Chance Pet Adoptions' 21st annual Evening of Pawsibilities returns as an in-person event at the newly-renovated Embassy Suites hotel in Cary on the evening of September 18. Join us from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. for a complimentary cocktail hour, dinner, and dessert; silent and live auctions; a Wine Pull and raffle (the prize is a $1,500 Visa gift card!); and a photo booth and visits with furry friends! (NOTE: Event attendees are now required by the Town of Cary to wear a properly-fitted face mask, except while actively eating and drinking.)

For those who are unable to join us in-person, you'll be able to register for free and purchase raffle tickets and bid in the silent auction as usual (thanks to mobile, electronic bidding through this site), but NEW this year, you'll also be able to bid in the live auction from home (or wherever you may be that evening) and get in on the fun through the professional live stream coming straight to you from the venue Saturday night, 7:30 - 9:15 p.m.! (The stream is free to access, though anyone who makes a contribution towards the cost of the stream will be entered to win a $100 gift card to Grubhub, Uber Eats, Door Dash, or Amazon! Details can be found here.) Remote attendees can find our shipping/pick-up policies here.

Also NEW this year: the "Wags With Swag" contest! Pet parents can submit photos of their cats and dogs looking fur-bulous and red-carpet ready in their fur-mal attire, and the cat and the dog with the most votes will each win prizes. Plus, your pets' photos will be shown in the big screen at the front of the ballroom to add some festive flair to the evening! See details and submit here.


Whether in the ballroom or in the stream, we can't wait to see you and yours at this life-saving fundraiser for the cats and dogs who'll get their second chances to find love.

More information about the event (including information related to COVID-19) is available now HERE, and we'll be updating the site with additional details as they become available. Thank you for your generous partnership in the fight to end animal homelessness in our community!

Our "Wags With Swag" contest has opened for voting!
