OUR POLICY

We rescue animals of all types, some waiting destruction in Welsh pounds others handed in to us for whatever reason, good or bad. We provide medial care, food, shelter and love for them all and ultimately find them loving homes. if for any reason things don't work out we always take them back. We inoculate and worm all our animals and ensure they receive any medical treatment they may require. We also neuter as many of our animals as possible, new owners of any un-neutered animals are bond by agreement to carry out this vital task at the earliest opportunity. Every eligible dog, cat or rabbit leaves our Rescue Centre with 6 weeks free insurance from a leading company, new owners are then given an opportunity to extend such cover by subscribing to the scheme. Our staff are always available to give advise on training or behavioural questions and are there to assist if needed.

We operate a non-destruction policy.



History

LAST CHANCE ANIMAL RESCUE CENTRE was founded in 1986, its aim being to rescue and re-home unwanted and abandoned animals. We take in all creatures, from cats and dogs to equines, livestock and wildlife. Our kennels are constantly filled from two main sources: local rescue dogs, and the Welsh 'pound dogs' saved from their death row sentence. For many it truly is their Last Chance.


Our Services

Our Veterinary surgeon checks, worms, and inoculates all animals, (we also indentichip all our dogs- cats can be identichipped at a minimal cost), and operate a rigorous neutering policy, as we strongly believe this makes a happier pet and is the most important way to reduce the escalating problem of pet overpopulation. We have a non-destruction policy, except on humane grounds, and a system of individual home checks before any animal is placed into a new home, along with follow up visits to ensure the animal has settled. All our animals leave us with six weeks free insurance cover, and we do encourage new owners to consider either extending the existing cover or taking out an policy of their choice. Our adopters sign a legal document declaring to give the best possible care, and to ensure that the animal is neutered at the earliest opportunity if this has not already been carried out, we always take back any former resident if the adopter is unable to keep it, thus ensuring future security for any animal entering Last Chance. As we are totally reliant on public support and do not receive and other funding, we do ask for a donation for our animals to enable us to continue caring for the next animal that arrives at our door. Please contact us for more information if you require it.
