Summer is here!
We hope you are enjoying the lovely weather but please remember it is terribly dangerous to leave dogs or any other animals in cars and it can be fatal. We are sure you are a responsible owner and would not dream of leaving an animal in a car but here are a few other tips during this hot spell and remember if you should see a dog left unattended in a hot car call 999 and ask for the police to attend immediately- you could be saving a dogs’ life.

Tips for keeping your dog cool this Summer.

  • Never leave your dog in a car
  • Don’t excessively exercise your dog
  • Plan walks at cooler times of the day
  • Always have plenty of water for your dog
  • Make sure your dog has shade to cool off in, whether inside or outside
  • Try to keep your dog out of the direct sun
  • Think twice about any car trips with your dog and, if essential, plan time for water breaks and try to avoid congested roads at busier times of the day

We would love your support
In memory of our wonderful Steve, who lost his 6 month battle with cancer on 26th Feb 2018, he was 45yrs old. Right up until the end he fought with every fibre of his being, believing that he would return to the strong, fit guy he always was. His passion for outdoors was evident in his love for rugby, dog agility and Airsoft. He also loved badminton and table top strategic gaming. Two years ago, Mist, an eight week old red border collie entered his life and immediately they became inseparable. Adoring each other, as Mist accompanied Steve to work each day. In his honour we are raising funds that will be split evenly between MacMillan Cancer Care and Last Chance Animal Rescue, Kent, two great charities close to Steve's heart. Please help us by donating on his page. Thank you.

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. The trustees

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.
