Working In Challenging Conditions.

The dedicated team work incredibly hard to provide the best possible care for the centre's animals. But they are constantly faced with problems caused by the worn out buildings. Animal welfare science has evolved greatly in the 50 years since the centre was built and the building means we can't meet the complex needs of the vulnerable cats and dogs coming in to our care.

The current layout and design amplifies noise levels, increasing the stress felt by the animals when they are at their most fragile. It is hard to prevent the spread of disease with animals living close together, and damaged pens making it difficult to maintain hygiene standards. 

Other issues include poor drainage causing flooding, faulty kennel hatches, rusted metalwork, cracked flooring and unusable exercise areas for both the dogs and the cats, leaky roofs and gutters.
