Rescue All Stars Launch - 29 May 2022

Second Chance Animal Rescue and Moon Dog cordially invite you to their Rescue All-Stars Launch event!

SCAR and Moon Dog have collaborated to create a Juicy Pale Ale  with a whole heap of character, just like the rescue pets featured on the front of the cans.

In a nationwide competition, 8 real-life rescues were chosen to be featured  on the front of this new range of cans. Each one features the story of the winning doggo and their characteristics and why they're so doggone lovable!

Please join us at Moon Dog OG in Abbotsford on Sunday 29th May for the launch of this exciting beer collection, meet some of the winning real-life rescue pets and possibly best of all – there will be puppy cuddles (up for adoption) and a dog kissing booth for those needing a pooch smooch.

"Local partnerships with like-minded, animal loving companies just like Moon Dog are exactly what we're looking for here at SCAR. We rely on support like this to continue our life saving work." says Marisa, CEO of Second Chance Animal Rescue.

"We're thrilled to be working with
Moon Dog and can't wait to taste our collaboration."

The Rescue All Stars Beer will be available at all good bottle shops from the 31st of May and if you can’t wait that long, head to the Moon Dog online store to buy your pack from 26th May.

Beer and event proceeds will go toward raising awareness and funds for Second Chance Animal Rescue and their lifesaving work in the community, helping rescue and rehome abandoned pets and supporting pet owners doing it tough by providing free pet food and medical care to those in need.

"We're really excited about this collaboration. We're big dog lovers here at Moon Dog and being able to celebrate rescues and support a great cause felt like a natural fit for us." says Moon Dog’s Dave Langlands.

About Second Chance Animal Rescue:

Second Chance Animal Rescue was founded in 2008 after vet nurse and shelter volunteer, Marisa Debattista, witnessed first hand how many beautiful animals needed help, versus how few resources were available. SCAR now has a shelter, animal hospital and vet (open to the public) and a dog grooming facility in Craigieburn.

“We offer a number of free services not readily available within the state – such as our Safe House for Pets program, where we find temporary homes for pets whose owners are domestic violence survivors, as well as our Outreach Program offering free medical care and pet food to those struggling financially. To be able to offer these programs free to those needing them, we rely on sponsors, fundraising and donations.

We are thrilled to be partnering with Moon Dog on this exciting collaboration. With the word ‘Dog’ in their name and their dog loving ethos it felt like a natural fit.’ says Marisa.

Over the course of the next twelve months, Marisa and the team aim to achieve the following:

✔️ De-sex 300 animals and assist over 300 underprivileged pet owners with free veterinary treatments via the Pet Outreach Program;

✔️ Hand out over 2000kg of pet food to struggling pet owners via the Free Food Bank;

✔️ Offer free emergency respite care to 50 animals belonging to domestic and family violence survivors via the Safe House for Pets Program.
