We celebrated 30 YEARS OF BARK IN THE PARK!
After a chilly start, we had a great day! Adorable adoptables were on hand from eight area rescue organiations. More than 40 vendors joined us with an amazing array of products and services. Red Creek Farm, Disc Dogs of the Carolinas and the Clemson Kennel Club staged entertaining & informative demonstrations. And of course our Dog Contests were a hit!
We hope you were there with us! If not, be sure to visit the festival page to see our festival sponsors, rescue organizations and vendors.
We know a good time was had by all - we've got the photographic evidence! Here are just a few fun shots, but you can see them all in our 2013 Gallery.
We're open for business this Thursday, Friday & Saturday from 10:00AM to 5:00PM!
The Second Chances Thrift Shop is located at 1324 Miller Road, just a block off Woodruff Road. If you're looking for bedding, home goods, books, clothes - just about anything - we've got it!

You can support CCA just by shopping online! Simply install the Goodsearch toolbar - it's easy. Click this link then follow the directions:
Every time you go directly to a participating GoodShop store, the toolbar will highlight what percentage of your purchase will be donated to your cause and if any coupons are available!
Please note, a handful of merchants still require that you visit GoodShop first and click through to the store. This will be apparent because the donation button will not light up. For Amazon and eBay, you can simply click on the icon on the toolbar to get to the sites.
A Rescuer's Creed
I shall be a believer of all that is good in man and of all that is deserving in animals. I shall plead for their lives, campaign for their safety and uphold their right to a natural death. I shall seek out the injured and the maimed, the unloved, and the abandoned and tend to them in their last days. I shall not forget their place in the hierarchy of life, nor that we walk in each other's paths. I shall bear witness to the wonder they bring into our lives and to the beauty they bestow upon our souls.
I shall renew their spirits when they are waning, bind their wounds when they bleed, cradle them when they whimper, and comfort them when they mourn. I shall be near them in their hour of greatest need - a companion and friend when the time has come. I shall watch over them and console them and ask that the angels gather them in their arms. From the creatures of the earth I shall learn the fruits of compassion and undying love, and I shall be called the beloved of God.
In their company I shall indeed be blessed.
