C.A.R.E of South Bend hosts rummage sale for injured animals

South Bend Animal Care and Control is holding their second annual “Hope and Second Chances” rummage sale.

“All the money raised from the sale every penny of it will go to help the sick and injured animals here at South Bend Animal Care and Control,” said Valerie Schey, President of C.A.R.E. of South Bend.

The “Hope and Second Chances” fund helps pay for any animals who need expensive surgeries or medical treatments. They help save lives of animals that would’ve been lost.

Valerie Schey told ABC 57 News about one dog whose life was saved by the cause.

“We brought Daisy to the doctor and the doctor said that what needed to be done was the eye needed to be removed heaven forbid before it ruptured,” said Schey.

“The Hope and Second Chances fund provided the money necessary to get the surgery. Daisy got the surgery and shortly thereafter, she met the absolute perfect family and now Daisy is living in a wonderful home,” said Schey.

There will be toys, designer clothing, home décor, books, craft supplies, pet items and more at the sale. It will be held from 9 A.M. to 6 P.M. on Saturday at the Zion United Church of Christ in South Bend.
