Barks & Brews, Flagstaff; How cool is this?
What a wonderful way to start a Monday. Michael Austin sent us a picture and video. The video simply kicks butt! Killer song too! OK, off to the Ipod store to spend more money. The video will bring a smile to your face!
Guess it was for the first ever Bark and Brews in flagstaff? Here is some info on Barks and Brews.

To learn more about Second Chance Center for Animals click on the link or via FaceBook @SecondChanceCenterforAnimals. Here is a snipet of what they are all about:
Dick and Jean Wilson started the Plateauland Mobile Veterinary Clinic in 1995 to address the problem of dog and cat overpopulation in rural areas of Northern Arizona. The vast tribal land in this region covers 27,000 square miles and is home to as many as 445,000 community animals known as “Rez Dogs” and “Rez Cats.” Sadly, there is little or no veterinary care for homeless animals.
The Wilson’s soon discovered that the needs of homeless animals in Northern Arizona vastly exceeded the capability of a single mobile clinic program. The generosity of the Robert T. Wilson Foundation created Second Chance Center for Animals in 2004, and initially the state-of- the-art animal care facility served as a home base for the Plateauland Mobile Veterinary Clinic. Since that time, Second Chance Center for Animals has greatly expanded to care for more than 10,000 homeless dogs and cats. The 20,000 square foot animal shelter, veterinary hospital, and education center is located on 10 acres in north Flagstaff and is only 70 miles from the Grand Canyon. Second Chance Center for Animals is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) charity that is today funded exclusively through public donations.
Sounds like a great place to us! We will plan on making the next Barks & Brews!
Thanks for reaching out Michael that really made a Monday morning great and the video of Barks & Brews really kicks butt!
