Qatar's animal rescue organisation, 2nd Chance Rescue was today awarded a cheque for over QR 10,000 at the Gulf English School in Doha.

The Gulf English School, one of the top education institutions in Qatar, awarded the donation to 2nd Chance Rescue officials during the schools assembly.

­Students raised money for the animal charity by creating an audio CD. The CD, entitled Songs From Around The World including hits such as You Will Never Walk Alone and I Got Rhythm, was sold both at the school and at 2nd Chance Rescue sister organisation, Park View Pet Center.

Fiona Redfern-Pattison, Music Co-Ordinator, Gulf English School, said: “We’re thrilled to give this money to 2nd Chance rescue. The children have worked incredibly hard to raise the amount, both through the CD and by raising money via family and friends. We chose 2nd Chance because of the work they do with schools and in the community, and it’s a great way to teach the children about animal welfare.”

Abdulla Al-Naemi, Founder of 2nd Chance Rescue, said “This time of year will see a rise in the amount of abandoned and stray cats and dogs left at our gates, so this donation will help us support these animals in need. A big part of our vision is education, both with children and adults, and to see how much these young people care and have learnt about our work is fantastic.”

2nd Chance Rescue offers educational programmes for organisations and schools in Qatar on animal welfare. The workshops, which aim to educate Qatar’s diverse population how to look after, care for, and rescue animals can be booked by sending a request to 2nd Chance Rescue Manager Rhonda Rooney at [email protected]

As the Holy Month of Ramadan approaches 2ndChance Rescue plan to reach out to the communities of Doha, to raise awareness for the cause and ask for donations to help update their current facilities and with ever growing medical bills.

Donations of dog food, leads, collars, toys, blankets, treats and bowls are welcomed at the 2nd Chance Rescue facility in Qatar or via its partner organisation Park View Pet Center.
