25th Anniversary Block Party

June 22, 2024

Get ready to unleash the celebration as Second Chance Animal Services celebrates 25 incredible years of compassion, dedication, and countless furry tails wagging with joy!

Our journey wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible support of our community, so what better way to celebrate than with a block party in East Brookfield where it all began?

The event will include Klem’s who is celebrating their 75th Anniversary and Timberyard Brewing Company who just celebrated their 5th Anniversary for a block party extravaganza that’ll have tails wagging from miles around.
