Current News

Notification of Temporary closure at New Romney Centre
With regret we have to inform you that we will be unable to accept dogs into our New Romney Centre for the period January 2018-April 2018. During this period the adoption of dogs from the New Romney Centre will also cease. A case of Distemper has been identified therefore necessitating this period of quarantine to avoid any possible spread of infection. The affected dog is receiving full medical care and we are hoping for a speedy recovery. The dog in question was accepted into Last Chance New Romney from a member of the public at the end of December. We were made aware the dog had originated from a home situation in Romania but had been legally brought into the UK by the then owner along with all necessary paperwork, up to date vaccination certificate and pet passport. Based on the evidence of this paperwork and health certification being in order, combined with the dog being of good temperament and at that time in apparent good health, we had no reason to be concerned about taking this dog into our care for re-homing. We were therefore devastated when the dog became unwell and was diagnosed with Distemper – totally destroying our faith in the validity of the Pet Passport system supposedly enforced to regulate and ensure the health status of animals entering the UK. A matter we will be investigating further for the protection of all pet dogs in this country. Since December 2016 Last Chance has, on a very few occasions, accepted desperately needy dogs (fully health checked, vaccinated, Pet Passport etc), from Europe and it has been extremely rewarding to be able to offer these poor souls a life-line. Now being aware that the validity of the protocol surrounding Pet Passports, vaccination certificates etc leaves a great deal to be desired sadly Last Chance will no longer be willing or able to help any animal originating from outside the UK. Our Centre at Edenbridge has not been affected in any way by this situation and continues to function as normal. We thank you for your support and patience during this unprecedented period.

Remember, Remember- 5th November!
It's that time of year again and sadly fireworks are not just confined to Nov.5th! So it can be really difficult to prepare and keep your pets safe but here are a few tips they may help. Obviously keeping your dogs and cats in after dark is no.1 (unless they are completely ok with fireworks) so an early walk is advisable, but other tips include, keeping all doors and windows closed, curtains drawn, TV/radio on. Treats to distract them and if they have a special spot in the house they treat as their den make it extra snug with blankets to cover the area and keep them feeling secure. Never scold them for showing signs of fear this will only distress them more. Try to reassure them, but we all know this is not always easy- good luck and be safe.

Foster home Found- thank you!
We are desperately seeking a foster home for Nat who is a lovely older girl who sadly has blood cancer which is not treatable. Our vet has made her very comfortable but the poor girl's prognosis is only a couple of months more to live. We desperately are seeking a foster home for her to spend her final months in a loving home. We are happy to provide food and any medication that she may need. She has a very sweet nature and is very friendly. Nat is good with other dogs. If you have room in your heart and your home for this wee girl please Tel: 01732 865530 or email us using the contact form. Thank you so much- Last Chance Team

Hope - 5 weeks on
What a difference love, care, compassion and veterinary treatment can make! And thankfully Last Chance Animal Rescue has all of these in abundance.
In just five weeks the sick, starving little dog that was so near to death is now on the road to a full recovery thanks to everyone at Last Chance and to our supporters who help us with donations to continue our life saving work.
Little Hope is now enjoying the life we wish for all dogs at the Centres, a clean cosy bed, a tasty and healthy food regime, excellent veterinary care, and loads of love.
The really sore skin that she had is almost healed, making her feel so much more comfortable and her hair has started to grow again, so hopefully she will be looking her best very soon. She is enjoying her short walks which are helping build up her muscles, the staff tell me so strolls slowly from her lovely kennel to the field for a little exercise and then runs back as fast as she can to devour her next meal!
Not surprisingly dinners are her most favourite thing ever!
It is great to see her eyes beginning to shine again. We hope to find her a wonderful forever home soon. Thank you to all our supporters for allowing us to save dogs and cats like Hope.

Friday 19th May, a gentleman arrived at our Edenbridge Centre with a female Staffie who he had found amongst discarded carboard boxes in an alleyway adjoining a take away in Croydon. He called to the little dog which was curled up in a ball and miraculously she lifted her head and staggered toward him, too weak to walk properly. This poor little soul had been so badly neglected and starved she was near to death. Her coat was non-existent due to dreadful mange, malnutrition and flea infestation, her eyes cloudy and dull and every bone in her sore body was painfully visible.
Last Chance staff had never seen such a shocking case of cruelty, starvation and neglect. She was immediately taken to our emergency Vet who, along with the vet nurse, was reduced to tears at the state of this desperate little dog clinging to life. The little dog who staff have named Hope was immediately started on medication and pain relief. Tests were carried out and a plan was drawn up to help save this precious soul.
It will take many months to try to restore her to health and as I write she is not out of the woods by any means but we all are trying our hardest to give her every possible chance. She is now safe in our care, being kept warm, enjoying cosy duvets, on a strict feeding regime, being bathed to help her sores, being given the gentlest of exercise to help rebuild her wasted muscles, receiving medication she so badly needs to overcome her health issues and not least of all is being loved by everyone who is helping her.
Who could have caused so much suffering to this wee girl? What a sad world we live in. If you have any information about this terrible case or that would prevent a similar act of cruelty occurring please do everything you can, report it please.
If you could spare a few pounds to help towards Hope"s care or other dogs and cats just like her that we rescue, Last Chance would be very grateful.
