What is Speranza Animal Rescue?
Speranza Animal Rescue is a non-profit, 100% volunteer-run rescue, rehabilitation center, and sanctuary, committed to saving the most abused and neglected animals with the goal of finding loving homes for as many of them as possible. Speranza is located on a 17.5 -acre horse farm in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, which provides the perfect setting to offer time, patience, and love to those animals needing a second chance. Speranza, which means “hope” in Italian, is an all-breed rescue focusing on Pit Bulls and other Bully Breeds.
You may remember the story of Libre who was cared for by Speranza and is now a Speranza ambassador.
Be sure to purchase some raffle tickets and take a chance on some fabulous auction items! As we get closer to the event, we will be posting information on gift baskets and items here, so check back in July!
Thank you to all of the local businesses who have supported this event through raffle basket donations.
Bedding Drive for Speranza
August 1 – 15, 2020
Speranza is always in need of bedding donations. The AACA Museum will be a drop-off location for bedding donations (i.e. blankets, sheets, towels) so you can bring them in advance, or on the date of the show. Clean, well-loved items are appreciated, as are newly purchased items.
Can I bring my pet to the show?
Yes, please do! Cars 4 Critters is an event to support our furry friends, so the more the merrier.
Please have your pets on a leash, clean up after them, and be aware that there are many people at the show. There can also be loud cars, so be cautious if this will make your pet uncomfortable.
August temperatures can be nice, or they can be a bit warm, so please bring water for your pet and shade.
Only registered service animals are allowed inside the Museum.
