Matty (appropriately named) was brought into kennels as a stray. His coat was in a shocking state, and his ears were clogged. The kennel owner contacted Second Chances and our volunteer, Lesley, went to visit him. As no one came forward to claim him, Second Chances stepped in.

Please vote for our video entry for the Support Adoption for Pets (Pets at Home) competition – 10 charities will win a grant of £50,000 each.
Go into the Support Adoption for Pets facebook page and look for our video (our entry is near the bottom of the page).
The number of votes each video gets will count as part of the judging process, although a judging panel will make the final decision.
Second Chances is asking for the grant to fund new vans for transporting the dogs.
Can you offer a foster home to a German Shepherd Dog??
We are always in need of foster homes to help us care for dogs that come into our care. Fostering will save dogs from going into kennels when their own home cannot look after them any longer.
As a fosterer you will play an extremely valuable role in giving the dog a normal family environment.
We take foster placement seriously and will only allow a dog to be fostered after a Home Visit by one of our volunteers. At the visit we will gather as much information about you to ensure that any dog that you foster will fit into your home environment. If you think you could offer a dog a temporary foster home, please see the attached brochure with more information foster leaflet latest version. Please contact us if you would like to help.
Two thirds of us receive at least one gift we don’t want each Christmas – do you have any unwanted gifts?
We are always in need of good quality gifts for our tombolas and raffles that we hold throughout the year to raise funds. Please let us know if you would like to donate anything.
