Welcome to the Second Chance Animal Rescue
Please take time to browse our site, here you will learn all about the work that we do. You will also find a selection of animals that are looking for new homes
We were recently sent some photo's taken back in 1992 by a volenteer. The rescue has certainly come a long way in the last 21 years. We thought you might like to see the then and now photo's
This years Open Day & Fun Dog Show is to be held on Sunday 30th June 11-4. Please come along
On top of the obvious like dog/cat food, cat litter etc the items we use most of on a daily basis are washing powder, dustbin bags, household bleach and washing up liquid. Any donations of these items are a huge help to us and helps us to keep costs down. Please do think of us when doing your weekly shop, we would be very grateful.
Many thanks to all that Sponsorsed an animal over the Christmas period. All the money raised goes towards keeping animals safe in our care until we start rehoming again after the busy Christmas period.
Unfortunatly the current financial climate has taken its toll on us and donations were down by a quater compared to previous years. We can only hope that things begin to pick up soon.
We are very sorry to say that Sadie, one of our resident dogs has sadly passed away. She was on her annual holiday in Wales with Rose when she was taken ill, it was then discovered that she had mutiple tumors on her lungs. Many thanks go to Milfeddygon Williams Veterinary Surgeons in Machynlleth, Powys for all their care and attention.
Please, please get your rabbit vaccinated. Myxomatosis, a most awful and fatal disease is around at the moment. We have recently lost a pair of the most friendliest, beautiful rabbits to it. This pair were being housed in an cage inside a shed with no contact with other rabbits. Its common for people to assume that their pet rabbits will be safe from it because they are housed in a shed, living indoors or not likely to come in contact with wild rabbits. The disease is passed by fly's, flea's and other insects so is very easily spread. Its a horrific disease than can and will cause an awful death so please do vaccinate now
Many thanks to Dulux for donating the paint to us to allow Charley Wilcock and Rob Vaughan to paint our fantastic mural on our food store. It looks amazing with caricatures of many of our dogs and volenteers and has become a real focal point
We are finding that with the huge number of cats that we have here waiting for homes we are running extremly low on cat biscuit's. Hence any donations of dry cat food would be very gratefully received
Foster Homes Urgently Needed
We are looking for some experienced foster homes with no young children and someone at home during the day to help with some young dogs that just need a bit of extra socialization. They are not aggressive in any way, purely a little shy and wary of the world around them. Having spent all their short lives in kennels we really feel that these dogs deserve the extra help to get them into the new homes they deserve. If you can help foster one of these dogs please contact us as soon as possible. Thank you.
It has come to our attention that once again some of our postal donations have gone astray. We always respond to any donations unless requested not to, so if you do send in a donation to us and you do not receive a response from us then please do let us know.
Ebay & Missionfish
Many thanks to those that donate the proceeds or a percentage of the selling price of items that they sell on Ebay. If you wish to help us in this way it is easily done when listing your item on Ebay. Missionfish will then pass on your donation after your item has sold.
