Second Chance Humane Society is excited to announce the fact it is hosting the 5th Annual 2019-20 Bow Wow Film Festival virtually from May 8-15. Bow Wow is an innovative, traveling dog-themed film festival in its 5th year that will now be available from the comfort and safety of your own home, snuggling with your pets on the couch.

Bow Wow celebrates the human-canine bond and the marvelous ways our beloved pets inspire us, care for us and bring us joy through the art of short film.

“These uplifting and inspirational films remind us of the importance of pets in our lives, which now more than ever we are truly recognizing.” shared Second Chance executive director Kelly Goodin.

Second Chance hosted the 2019-2020 Bow Wow Film Fest debut in Telluride last July The films were scheduled to be shown again this past March in Ridgway as part of Second Chance’s Furry Flicks and Fashion – but that was prior to the event’s COVID-19-related cancelation.

Goodin stated: “Bow Wow has been great about providing the flexibility needed to still bring these wonderful films to our community members.”

Bow Wow has partnered with animal welfare organizations across the country to enthusiastic audiences various cities including Austin, TX, Minneapolis, MN, Denver, CO and San Francisco, CA, all to raise money and awareness for animal welfare organizations. The films are crafted by great storytellers, animators and artists in about 90 wonderful minutes of award-winning, funny, poignant shorts, films that engage as well as touch the heart.

Bow Wow’s 2019-20 highlights include the return of “Ask Frank – Advice for Dogs,” the moving story of a man who lost everything, then found it again with a shelter pup and the ocean. It is a delightful story about a rescued foster pup, a crowd-pleaser involving dogs, Italy and mountain bikes. Need we say more?

All proceeds from the online viewing of Bow Wow Film Festival will directly benefit the broad range of life-saving programs and services Second Chance has been providing in Ouray, Montrose and San Miguel counties for the past 26 years:

“Our mission of connecting pets, people and community has never been more needed and this is a fun and easy opportunity to support these programs in a responsible “safer-at-home” format,” concluded Goodin.
