In 2019 it will be 40 years since Second Chance first opened its doors to unwanted, abandoned, stray and needy animals.
Sue and George Long, both sadly no longer with us, started the rescue in September 1979 and their son Tony is our present chairperson.
Many thousands of animals have passed through our doors to have a second chance at finding their forever homes since then.
We want to celebrate 2019 with our supporters by taking on as many (at least 40) fundraising events as we can possibly fit in. So 2019 is promising to be a very exciting year and we would love to invite our supporters to help by finding ways to fundraise for us. Our aim is to raise money for a new roof covering over our outside cattery area and some much needed repairs to our isolation. Hopefully together we can achieve this.
If you have any ideas or want to volunteer as a fund-raiser please let us know. Any events will be advertised on our Facebook and website, plus forthcoming newsletters (you may have already seen the events for our two dog walks in January). A list of the events we have arranged so far can be found under Events on our website.
We are so thankful for all the support and help we have received in the last 40 years - we couldn’t have have done it with out you all!!🐶🐱
