The Rancho Coastal Humane Society is hosting “The Celebration of Second Chances: The Healing Power of Animals” on Sept. 7, from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Located at the Del Mar Country Club, the event will honor Christine Penrod-Mabee, a supporter of and inspiration for the Humane Society who dedicated much to help animals. The society has been an avid caretaker for many homeless animals around San Diego County, and the event will surely do its mission justice. For more information about the organization and event, visit
