Since it opened in 1999, hundreds of dogs have passed through the kennels doors and have gone on to wonderful new homes and families. On this page you will see some of those lucky dogs in their forever homes, and hear how they've settled in and how they've enriched their new families' lives.

Hi Ena and Frank,
Just spoken to you Ena,so thought I'd send these pics whilst all of them are sleeping!!
He's a great boy! I'd love to know more about his background though,because there are a couple of things he's really scared of.
Bathrooms being one of them! It was awful seeing him like that.
He loves the train though.We often pop up to Kdy to see Mum,as Methven is right at the station.As for the beach,well,I should buy shares in the bloody place!!
It's been a hectic 10 days getting to know him,but after an awful year,10 of the very best

Thank you

Will come and see you all next week.Love Alison xx

Hi everyone just thought I would send you an update on me, this is me having time out !!!! and just one of my wee face awww, I have settled in so well and my mum loves me to bits, even though I still want to chase the cats, but I'm sure we will get used to each other in time, mum says she will bring me to visit soon. Lots of love Mac xxxx

I remember getting our dog Bonny from your kennels. She was very nervous and shy, and when i saw her i thought, right this dog needs lots of TLC and that is just what she has had for the last 15 years. But i am sad to say she is now very slow, has heart problems etc. But we make her as comfortable as possible and spoil her with all the love she can possibly get.

I would just like to say, thankyou for letting me have the most wonderful companion all these years and we hope we can keep her going a bit longer.

I have read your home page and it sounds like you give these lovely creatures such a lot of love. Until they are rehomed.
If the awful day should come that i should loose my wonderful friend, i and my family will, in time come to rehome another dog.
Margaret thank you so much for the update on Bonnie and the pics, she's lovely, its just so sad that like the rest of us they have to get old !!! I just love hearing from all our dogs xxx

Hello Aunty Ena and Uncle Frank

I am starting to settle in my new home with my new mum. I had to go and see a nice man called Angus he is a vet. My new mum said that my breath was a bit wiffy!!!! So I had some dental work done and now I can give and get lots of kisses.

I am getting out and meeting new friends and I visit my country cousins Scruffy and Skye. Photos to follow as my mum cannt find them just now.

So here are some photos of me. I have a lovely pink harness and a new red coat.

I will come and visit you soon.

Lots of Love

Hollyxxx

She was such a malnourished wee girl when she came in, and to look at her now you would never have guessed it, her coat is like silk she has put weight on but most of all she is loved so much. Just made our day xxxxxx.

Mitch >>
Posted: 23rd October 2012

Just had an e-mail from Mitch saying "I'm Famous" xx

So glad wee man that you are so settled and happy. Just new your Mum & Dad were perfect for you. Love from Ena & Frank xxxx

Hi Aunty Ena and Uncle Frank Its Mitch here, sorry for the delay in writing, I have just been so busy with my new Mum Valerie, Daddy Andrew and my other Dad Bob, who looks after me during the day, right next door, so I really have two houses and two gardens which is just great. On Friday’s I go out with Nicky the doggie walker and meet up with other doggies, Nicky says I am a good boy – well what would you expect ? I have settled in very well and enjoying life, I have been on lots of new adventures and been to lots of nice new places and met some nice people. I live very close to the park and woods where I have made lots on new doggie friends, I really like Tilly, she is a lady about my age and I even share my ball with her J I have been to the beach lots of times which I just love, it is the best place on earth, but mum worries a bit when dad throws the ball into the water, but I am a great swimmer and love it. My dad took me to his favourite hill which was great fun. I have even been on my first holiday, we went to Aberdeen for a couple of nights, I got a bit anxious when I saw the bags getting packed up and my bed going in the car, but I soon settled down when I realised I was going on an adventure, we went on lots of walks and I got a new fancy ball to play with. We will go on another break very soon. Mum says I am more messy that her other doggies have been, she said Meggie was a proper lady and would walk around the muddy puddles, but apparently I am a real cheeky boy who will run through these puddles at full belt – well I have to catch my ball J The downside is with all this bad weather and all my walks I am going through lots of towels and that mum of mine insists on me getting a bath – can you tell her not to do that please, I don’t like it! I love the water at the beach, burns and the big puddles that have magically appeared in the park but not the bath! Here are some photos of my adventure so far, thank you for looking after me, I miss you both, but I am really happy here and we will come for a visit one weekend before Christmas so I will see you soon.

With paws, cuddles and big kisses. Mitch

Posted: 16th October 2012

Well this is me getting ready to set of to my new home,I managed with just a look of my big brown eyes to make my new owners fall in love with me. They needed to see if I would be okay around children so they went home and came back with their grandchildren Emma & Callan, who I was really good with. So home vist was done yesterday and this is me with my new folks and Emma and Callan who was a wee bit shy, but they brought me a special teddy and a poster welcoming me to my new home how nice was that !! Lots of love Marley xx . Ps: they have promised to keep in touch which went down really well with Ena as she loves to hear how all her past residents are getting on Xx

Posted: 13th October 2012

Well this is me getting ready to set of for home, my new friend is Tess I really like her, mum and dad are lovely too so I know this is my " Forever " home. Love Riley xx

Update on "Our " Riley ! Thanks for the update he is such a lucky boy xx



Hi Ena.

Just to let you know Riley has settled in great. Tess and him are playing together at pull. Where ever Tess goes he goes. He is also quick at learning things as well. His recall is getting better, and he can jump into the back of the car now. Doesn't mind other dogs sniffing him either. We've almost got the toilet training cracked. David and I kill ourselves laughing at some of the things he does, stairs are not his forte, he goes down more than up. He's booked in to be castrated on the 8th of November, with a bit of luck that will calm down his amour for Tess... She growls at him and he back off. I've more blankets here I'll see if I can bring them up next week sometime. Take Care for now
Love from
David Lynn, Tess and Riley.

Riley

Lady >>
Posted: 13th October 2012

Dear Ena,

Brent told me you had been asking after me. My Mum is often on the laptop looking at homeless hounds and she tells me how lucky I was to arrive at Second Chance.I've enclosed some photos for you so you will see I'm a very happy girl. There is one with me and Mr Cole, he comes to stay his holidays now that he has retired as a guide dog. Just wish he would keep off my bedAnother one is of me and Freya's cat Samuel, he and I fell in love, even kissed when we met, but sadly he died three weeks ago and I find her house very quiet without him. You can see me and Freya on my birthday with all my presents. she tries to train me and I humour her, well she has all the biscuits.Jack and I are snoozing on our holiday in Tyndrum after a long walk, then my Mum & I relax in Ford, we went to a caravan on a farm. Would you believe it ? Cows and lots of sheep and no fences. There were dogs a bit like me keeping them under control but I prefer to relax.I hope you are all well . Cannot believe its been 2 years and a bit since I came here. We are just one happy family . I still bark at the door. Well I've got to protect my Mum & Dad. I think you did a smashing job matching us up . I know you do that for all your guests .Meant to come and see you but that Freya needs such a lot of running after, we seem to run out of time.Hopefully we will early next year. Take care love Lady B x & Mum & Dad ps. just chased a squirrel down the garden !

Lady, you are looking really good and obviously enjoying life. xx
