The Dogathon Event this year was a huge success with a record participation of 1,216 canines!
Second Chance would like to thank the organizing committee for allocating us a booth and all supporters who dropped by.

Elsa's makeover

Juliana believes and shares the same concept like us : " Adopt, Don't Buy; Neuter, Don't Multiply "
"What adoption means to a stray/homeless furkid? It is not just giving them a place to stay in. To them, it is a place to find hope, love, safety and joy! If you can't rescue, please adopt. If you can't adopt, please share to create awareness. Stop buying, start adopting. This is Elsa, an abandoned blind Shih Tzu from puppy mill blessed with a second chance" (In a previous post, Elsa has been adopted by Madeline, this post is to show the journey she has come thus far, Thanks to Juliana (rescuer) and Madeline (adopter) for giving Elsa a second chance!)

Pre Adoption Day Bath Time

We just wanted to say a big Thank you to our long time supporters - Geeta and her mom for dropping by to give the furkids a bath a day prior to IOI Mall Adoption Drive.

The help means a lot to us and the furkids, by being clean and smelling great, chances of these "VIPs" getting adopted were surely increased!

Manja went camping!

Two of our volunteers together with some 4x4 enthusiasts and some 40 people from Yayasan Sunbeams Homes kids went for an outing near Gohtong Jaya. One of our lucky furkids-Manja got to tag along on this camping trip! Below are some photos on what that fella was up to.

In Loving Memory of Lucky

Lucky was tied up n being left alone in an emptied house when the owner moved out. With no proper food n water, nobody to take care of him caught his rescuer's friend's attention. Juliana drove all the way down to Karak n saw his condition was heartbreaking. Covered with ticks, fleas n soil. Tangled coating. Drove him all the way back to Dr Au of VPAC for treatment n vaccination. Upon seeking treatment, Lucky was then placed at our shelter, where Juliana would often visit and also to help out with shelter works. 

Juliana has been trying hard to find Lucky a loving forever home.

That was Lucky's story, for the past 6 months, he was active, energetic and friendly like how any doggie should be. Now, it is with a heavy heart to inform that Lucky passed on this Tuesday from cancer.


In remembrance of a lively boy, Lucky. May you Rest in Peace. Run free now, across Rainbow Bridge and don't look back. We will miss you.
At this point, we deem it fitting to share Lucky's rescuer - Juliana's thoughts
" A big thank u for all the workers n volunteers who have been so nice n kind to Lucky for the past 6 months. Allowing us to be part of this big family! My deepest appreciation for the supports n patience u all gave me. Not just for sheltering Lucky but helping me to understand homeless furkids even more. SCAS is a great training ground to prepare me in becoming a rescuer. 6 months, 2 souls saved. Lucky n Elsa the blind shih tzu. Lucky has decided to pass his baton to another furkid in need n my works will continue. In remembrance of my dear Lucky."
