From SCARS to STARS!!!

Personal message

Calling all Animal Lovers to SHARE this post together with wholeheartedly giving your SPARES & PRAYERS.

Lockdown has been BRUTAL, donations have DWINDLED MASSIVELY and SCARS (Second Chance Animal Rehab Sanctum) is now facing eviction due to Landlord changes.

Despite battling with SEVERE DEPRESSION, from the GARGANTUAN PRESSURE Chinelle has been RELENTLESSLY under for so long, she now has to MOVE!!!

The fact that both Chinelle and SCARS is still going is a TESTAMENT to her strength, fortitude, dogged determination & God’s Grace.

BUT we cannot do this without your help and we are looking to HEROIC DONORS & SUPERHEROES for financial support.

Whilst a new start brings challenges, it’s also an opportunity for a NEW BEGINNING and Chinelle has excellent plans to become self-sustaining.

We need to raise R100,000 to fit out new premises with enclosures, secure fencing and kennel facilities from which to derive an income.

Chinelle specialises in loving the most broken Souls back to life and turning around those that everyone else has given up on.

Most animals arrive human and dog aggressive, fearful of humans and dogs or disabled, because of the horrendous abuse they have suffered.

Endless patience, boundless energy and unconditional love, Chinelle restores their trust, brings out their true nature & restores them to love, light & loveliness.

They are then able to live freely in a home environment, integrated with other animals including dogs, cats, pigs, rabbits, geese & chickens.

I have spent many days and hours at SCARS, it’s an honour and a privilege and the animals who live there are amongst the most beautiful beings on the planet.

Chinelle is a true MIRCALE WORKER and GUARDIAN ANGEL and you would be helping an EXTRAORDINARY cause that does very special work.

100 HEROES are needed to gift R1,000 (South African Rands), equivalent to £50 or $60, or ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN SPARE, EVERY PENNY COUNTS.

Second Chance Animal Rehab Sanctum

Second Chance Animal Rehab Sanctum Logo

SCARS is a non-profit company specialising in the psychological & physical rehabilitation of abused and neglected animals. We rehabilitate challenging cases that other organisations are unable to deal with and desperate cases where euthanasia has been considered as the only option. After intensive work, these animals are often able to be re-homed, and only the best homes are considered for these very special cases. In cases where the abuse and neglect is so bad that the trust gained between rescuer and animal is unbreakable, these animals are given are home for life.
