Posted: 3rd May 2012

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.

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 !!!

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.
