Joyce's visit >>
Posted: 9th July 2011

Thanks again for today. Iím not sure who enjoyed it most, Joyce or me! I have sent the attached photo to the Fife Free Press, Central Fife Times and Dundee Courier. Hopefully they will feature it for us.
This was the story that I sent with it. I will be putting the article on our website as well so I will send you the link once itís live.

Second Chance Kennels in Thornton very kindly helped grant a wish for one of Kingdom Homes residents. Joyce Hunter who lives at Kingdom Homesí Fernlea House in Cardenden posted her wish in the Residents Wishing Well to visit kennels as she is very fond of dogs. When the home contacted Second Chance, Ena Conyon had no hesitation in agreeing to help and Joyce spent a lovely afternoon with some of the dogs currently being cared for at the kennels.
Pictured left to right are Ena and Tara the Yorkshire Terrier, Joyce and Elaine Allan from Kingdom Homes.

This is pupils at Donibristle Primary School, Dalgety Bay. Mrs Latimer was telling us all about the hard work they put into fundraising and they donated £300-00 each to the SPCA / RSPB and us here at Second Chance Kennels very well done to all involved.

This is Brodie the Collie meeting the children he and they loved it, we took him because we think maybe Mrs Latimer needs another dog to keep " our " Saffy company.

Sarah Duff and Sophie Beaton from Dalgety Bay did a sponsored cycle run in the Bay. The girls did two laps of the village, wee souls on their 2nd lap were getting tired and it was bitterly cold and very windy but they thought of the dogs they were helping and soldiered on to the finish.To raise £200-00 pounds for Second Chance,very well done to the girls and to the Dad who cycled round with them. The two wee ones in the middle did their bit by helping their Mums who made the cakes. To everyone who came out to cheer the girls on, thank you all so much.It really is greatly appreciated.

This is one of our residents meeting the children, Rocky a Deerhound cross who I have to say loved the attention.

Ian and Sandy >>
Posted: 6th November 2010

Ian from Kingdom Fm dropped in for a cuppa and Sandy remembered him in a nice way he greeted him with a lot of tail wagging ( Sandy not Ian ) and then promptly jumped up onto his knee and fell asleep.and Ian has all ten fingers to prove it.
When Ian was leaving Frank Tara and Alfie were just returning from a walk and Alfie went daft when he saw Ian so he needs to dig his wellies out and get back over to walk Alfie and Lady Tara, obviously they miss their walks with him.

Oliver >>
Posted: 22nd August 2010

Most people who know about Second Chance will know all about Oliver .

This is " Our " Oliver setting of for another new adventure bless him. His folks Irene & Gavin have moved away from Dunfermline.

So we won't have Oliver during the days when they were working, he will be a big miss at the kennels as he was very much part of Second Chance and has gone through so much.It will be two years on the 6th Sept since Oliver a very special wee lad was handed in at the gate about 4 months old and only weighing 3 Kilos a poor wee scrap who was sick every itme he ate anything.In all the following ops. ect: at the Dick Vets he never ever complained. He now gets fed through a tube in his side, and has come on leaps and bounds weighing in now at about 12 1/2 Kilos. So it won't be the same without him.However we are happy in the knowledge that he and his family will have lots more time to spend together.He has promised to bring his folks to visit often. Good luck Oliver not that you'll need just take everything in yor stride and we hope Pete your new daytime carer loves you as much as we do, well he'll have no choice because you wind yourself round everyone's heart.
Lots of love from Grannie Ena Grandad Frank xxxxxx Auntie Mhairi and Uncle Kevan and all who knew you here.xxxxxx
