A good view of McPhillips’ site in Cardiff showing the groundworks progress on the city’s new £13.5m Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre. When the Centre opens in 2021 the facilities are going to include:
- 78 glass kennels with underfloor heating – so dogs can choose warm or cool flooring depending on their needs
- Full Veterinary/surgical suite including hydrotherapy/physiotherapy room
- Exercise paddocks and runs
- Training Hall – to help teach old dogs new tricks
- Grooming suite
- A base for education and Dog School teams as well as neutering and microchipping campaigns.
Dogs Trust goes to huge lengths in order to help stray and abandoned dogs and rehabilitate those dogs in need of a little extra help, and the Cardiff Rehoming Centre will be no different. With dedicated Training and Behaviour Advisors, a full veterinary suite, and even a hydrotherapy/physiotherapy unit, dogs of all shapes and sizes will be offered all the help they need to find a new home.
Over 5,000 stray dogs were collected by local authorities in Wales last year alone. Dogs Trust Cardiff will care for around 1,000 stray and abandoned dogs each year, significantly helping the stray dog problem in the city and surrounding area.
