SCARS Lifeline!!!

Personal message

URGENT Help Needed NOW!

I’m writing this post with the intention of raising EMERGENCY funds to support SCARS (Second Chance Animal Rehab Sanctum) for 1 month.

This is NOT the typical plea for help, this is a whole different level borne out of being at BREAKING POINT for too long and now being at the END OF THE LINE.

There is also a wider initiative in place to alleviate the CRISIS that SCARS is facing with a view to putting ROCK SOLID FOUNDATIONS in place thereafter.

BUT right now, Chinelle NEEDS a LIFELINE and needs IMMEDIATE funds.

We NEED a MIRACLE!!!!!!!!!!

And we NEED it NOW!!!

The LAST RESERVES financed life-saving support for Tyler, a sweet, gentle and loving boy with a beautiful heart, who didn't make it, despite the Vets and Teams best efforts to save his life.

This has left SCARS, Chinelle and the other animals in an EXTREMELY VULNERABLE position with NO IDEA how to pay the bills and utterly DEPENDENT upon the kindness of strangers.

If you can help her through this, she WILL make it out alive, she just needs a little time and is DETERMINED to make it.

Please Dig Deep if you Can

Please spare as much as you can and KNOW that you are giving to an Almighty cause which will be thankful BEYOND measure.

We NEED you and we need you NOW, please HELP in any way you can, by sharing, by giving and by holding her in your Prayers whilst SCARS is at the mercy of the unknown.


Chinelle is an AWESOME rescue lady who stands tall, fights for those without a voice and battles against the odds and TRIUMPHS. 

She has been rescuing dogs for almost 10 years and specialises in dogs that have suffered from severe physical, mental & emotional abuse.

Many of those years she has been running on empty, and having had to be strong for too long, she now needs MAJOR support and is undertaking a MASSIVE REVIVAL.


What sets her apart is that she provides a safe haven, sanctuary & sacred space and all the animals live in her home, eventually being integrated together - a miraculous feat in itself!!!

There is no money in rescue, saying no often means a death sentence and caring for the animals takes priority over fund-raising.

Every month Chinelle finds herself in dire straits as she survives on the bare minimum and is frequently on the verge of closing.

Tyler’s death marked a turning point, SCARS is determined to make SERIOUS CHANGES and an AMAZING team has stepped forward to MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

We are excited about what's possible but can only do it with your help.

We NEED the Chinelle's of this world!!!

Chinelle's passion, integrity and heart is so pure, she is a RARE phenomenon.

Please support her to RISE FROM THE ASHES LIKE A PHOENIX!!!

If you knew even a snippet of what Chinelle has been through in her life, you would know that rising from the ashes is an integral part of who she is and her work is her testament.

A True Miracle Worker

From humble beginnings, she now has, at the time of writing, 46 dogs, 16 cats, rabbits, chickens, 5 ducks and 7 pigs, most of them rescued from terrible lives.

Chinelle is a true miracle worker with a real gift and if any dog is lucky and blessed enough to be placed into her care, you can be sure they will get the happy ever after they deserve.
There is nothing that Chinelle won’t do to pull an animal through and she has brought many back from the brink of death and from death itself. 

She has the ability to feel the pain that animals endure, a gift which is both a blessing and a curse and which enables her to work at a much deeper level.

Her commitment, courage & bravery is stellar, she is a true hero and one of God’s supreme Guardian Angels, never in my life have I experienced a more worthy cause.

Please Contribute Your Spares, Shares & Prayers

ANY amount is welcome and will be received with DEEP gratitude.

Funds will be spent on food for the animals, medical treatment and the day-to-day running of SCARS.

The lives this would touch, help and save would be INDETERMINABLE and the ripple effect would be HUGE.

Thank You For Reading, Sharing & Caring!
Please support this special lady in any way you can with your Spares, Shares or Prayers, to help those without a voice who need your help and deserve to be saved.

On behalf of the SCARS team and of course, the lucky and blessed dogs who are behind this initiative, we wish you all the very best and we are DEEPLY grateful to you.

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.
