Second Chance Kennels


  Thornton, Fife, Scotland.
Registered Scottish Charity No: SC-032202

Second Chance was founded in 1994 by myself & Frank my husband We worked from home for the first five years doing car boot sales / dances in fact any kind of fund raising to raise the money to build the kennels. We had a lot of help in the form of Norrie (community) and the territorial army from Kirkcaldy at last we were seeing our dream come true and after a lot of very hard work opened our doors on 2nd May 1999. We welcome Janet, Mhairi and Laura, Morag & Adam, who have been with us now for a few years.Also joining the team are Kirsten John & Gemma Jade Irene & Gavin ( Oliver's mum & dad ) Irene is now our treasurer.and Nicky. See this is what happens when you adopt a dog from us you get roped in to help !! We only have two dogs now, having sadly we lost our Golden Oldie Tess on New Years day 2009, an Sandy Man 27June 2011 they are sorely missed. Janet ,Laura , Morag has two Kirsten has four. We also have our Waiting for God side to the kennels, whereby we take in older dogs whose owners have died or gone into care. All our residents are seen by a vet and have all the neccessary vaccinations / wormed/ microchipped & boys are neutered (if old enough) and we encourage people to come back and have the girls done!!

Anyone who asks us to take a dog in for rehoming should be aware that they will be asked to sign a disclaimer form relinquishing the dog into the care of Second Chance Kennels. Once you have signed this form, the dog is then ours and we will endeavour to find the right home for each and every dog. So please be very sure you want to part with your dog before contacting the kennels !!

We do home visits to try and ensure that we are marrying up the right dog with a prospective owner and also to check there is a secure garden, which is a must !!! We do not home to high rise flats or to any families with children under five !! Or to full time workers !!

WE PUT A LOT OF TIME AND EFFORT INTO FINDING THE RIGHT HOMES FOR OUR DOGS AND PUPPIES, SO WE EXPECT FUTURE ADOPTIVE "PARENTS " TO DO THE SAME!! PLEASE THINK LONG AND HARD BEFORE OFFERING ONE OF OUR RESIDENTS A HOME, AS IT IS VERY UPSETTING FOR ALL CONCERNED IF ONE OF OUR WEE FRIENDS GO OUT AND ARE THEN RETURNED TO THE KENNELS, SOMETIMES AFTER JUST 36 HOURS sad.gif THIS HAS HAPPENED TWICE RECENTLY. CAN I JUST REITERATE AGAIN WE ARE HERE FOR THE DOGS!! WE ARE THE ONLY VOICE THEY HAVE AND WE NEED TO BE SURE YOU ARE TOTALLY COMMITTED BEFORE WE WILL LET ONE OF OUR CHARGES GO. IF WE SEEM TO BE A BIT HARD PLEASE GIVE A THOUGHT TO OUR FEELINGS AND THAT OF THE DOGS WE ARE TRYING TO PLACE IN NEW HOMES!!

If you're coming a distance, please call the kennels first as it can lead to disappointment if we are out when you arrive!!

THE KENNELS WILL NOW BE CLOSED ON A WEDNESDAY STARTING FROM THE 22ND AUGUST !!!! PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO THE VOLUME OF PHONE CALLS WE RECEIVE IT IS NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE TO CALL EVERYONE BACK. PLEASE USE THE MOBILE NUMBER WHENEVER POSSIBLE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION. Ena's Mob No. 0784 152 0074. News below re Bark in the Park !!

My name is Jazz and this is " wee " Blue" angel.gif I will write the story because Blue is Blind!! I am 4 yrs old and as you can see a very handsome Border Collie, good with children / dogs / still to be cat tested ! I am a bouncy Collie well is there any other kind tongue.gif Blue will be a year old in April and would defy anyone when we are out in the fields playing to know he is blind. It would be great if we could find a home together but know this is a very big ask !! Blue was born blind so has never known what it is to see, but he still manages to come up to me and take my toys off me, I just let him because he doesn't know any better. If anyone would like more information please contact us on 01592 771933 / 07841520074 /07716600060. Or if your in our area Fife Scotland you will hear us on a Friday morning with Kevin Brady on Kingdom FM between 11 - 12. Lots of Love :love Jazz & Blue xxx.

Hi my name is Rocco I am supposed to be a Mastiff x Rottie, only 8 months old just a puppy !! I am a wee bit apprehensive at the moment but once I get to know you I am a big soft lump. I am good with other dogs and children but because of my size I can be a B it bouncy. Strong on the lead but probably not had any lead training.
Love Rocco xx.


Thanks for looking,
RocImageco

I now have a new home x wub.gif

My name is Mickey I am a Bichon Frise mix about a year old. I am great with children & other dogs, cats are a NO NO !! Sadly this will be my third home, through no fault of my own. I will make a wonderful addition to any family. As long as they have time and commitment for me as I really need this to be my very last home. Ps: I am in need of a bath and maybe a wee haircut .


Love Mickey xx
