“We are so excited to have Dark Sky Aerial performing at Second Chance Center for Animals for our Paws & Claws Circus,” says Sean Hawkins, Executive Director for the organization.  “We have enlisted support from so many community partners for this very special event that will raise needed funds to save more animal lives.”  Babbitt Ford, National Bank of Arizona, Purina and Kingsmark Kennel have helped to generously underwrite Paws & Claws Circus, so ticket purchases directly support the pet rescue efforts of Second Chance Center for Animals.
