Stop at Purple Paws 2nd Chance Rescue Booth During Camping World for the Pet Days in Thornburg, October 13

Fredericksburg, Va., September 24, 2018—Purple Paws 2nd Chance Rescue (PP2CR), an organization established in 2016 to recruit volunteers to foster and care for dogs that have been abandoned and from high-kill animal shelters, will be at Camping World for the Pet Days from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 13.Camping World is located at 6101 Mallard Road in Thornburg, Va.

PP2CR is in need of donations, including medium and large dog crates, grain-free dog food for puppies and adult dogs, puppy pads, leashes and collars, as well as monetary donations. These donations can be dropped off to PP2CR volunteers at Camping World on October 13 or made directly to the organization. In addition, monetary donations can be made to PP2CR by calling Lee’s Hill Pet Hospital at (540) 710-7111 and requesting that it be placed on the organization’s account. Individuals can also opt to view the organization’s Amazon Wish List at to view the most needed items to help enhance the dogs’ lives. In addition, there is a link to the wish list on the PP2CR Facebook page.

The nonprofit PP2RC was formed by cofounders Trish Widener and Layla Hall, of Fredericksburg. Widener, who was a staunch advocate for rescue dogs, lost her battle with cystic fibrosis at the age of 33 in 2017.
PP2CR, which enlists the help of foster families, is in critical need of more volunteers to foster the animals in order to make room for other dogs to be saved. Individuals who want to help, but are unable to foster, can transport; provide monetary donations; and help at adoption events by walking the dogs.
To date, PP2CR has been able to find forever homes for 338 dogs. The organization assists animals in distress without regard to age, breed or ease of placement. Foster volunteers receive supplies for the dogs, including food, kennels, medical costs, toys and bedding. For people who aren’t sure about fostering or adopting a pet, there’s a two-week trial program.
