The Yvonne Gray School of dance held their end of term show in the Rothes Hall. This is a picture of Emma & Kirsty, two of the pupils who had a charity stall for the kennels there and raised 100 and gave us some gifts for Bark in the Park.
They also invited Dawn and Yvonne 2 of our volunteers to see the show and they both really enjoyed it.
Thank you girls for thinking about us and for the very kind donation.

We entered a wee competition with Pet Plan Insurance and were fortunate to come second and received a cheque for 50-00.
Anyone who has adopted dogs from us know that we always put our residents out with 4 weeks free insurance from Pet Plan.We have no hesitation in recommending them. Always found them to be an excellent insurance company.

Our Friend Kirsten . >>
Posted: 31st March 2012

It is with heavy hearts we have to let everyone know, that Kirsten Reekie a volunteer here at the kennels. Passed away very suddenly aged only 41yrs on the 20th March 2012.Kirsten was invaluable to us here, I only had to lift the phone and she would be there whether it be to do a talk to different schools etc: or home checks to pick up dogs, to look after the kennels to let Frank and myself have a day off, nothing was too much trouble for her.She also did the Bark in the Park dog show for us every year. She was a devoted daughter/ sister/ wife and mum to John and their two girls Jemma and Jade not forgetting her beloved dogs Tyser / Breeze ( Gayle ) / Jess all Border Collies and of course her special wee lad Bob ( all Second Chance dogs), Kirsten & Bob were joined at the hip. The whole family were into agility in a big way they ran all their dogs it was a real family time. Kirsten will be sorely missed by us among so so many, she will never be forgotten.Even after her passing bless her, she still thought of Second Chance a collection taken at the funeral raised 834-57 pence.R.I.P.Kirsten You were a very special Lady xx.

How the kennels started !! >>
Posted: 8th March 2012

Hi just came across these photo's which are some we took as the kennels were being built, it's hard to imagine how the place looked back then which would be fourteen years ago. The main inside kennels used to be Ladybank chip shop !!It took a lot of work but we had loads of help. It will be thirteen years on the 2nd May 2012, since Bill Donaldson ( who used to be the dog warden ) cut the ribbon to open the kennels. We have gone on to rehome hundreds of dogs, even a lamb and a horse. Where does the time go !!!
