The Big Bark – we need your help to rebuild our kennels




Our existing kennels are old and no longer fit for purpose. They are very difficult and expensive to keep warm in the winter and cool in the summer.  

We want to give the dogs in our care spacious and comfortable kennels with quiet spaces for nervous dogs, a grooming room, training area and lounge where dogs can become used to carpets and sofas and get accustomed to household noises such as a microwave and TV. 

We need your help.

We need to raise over £1million to make this dream a reality and we will not be able to do it without the support of our wonderful friends.

In the video below you can see architect’s plans for the proposed new kennel block.

Please do something remarkable and pledge your support today!  There are lots of ways that you can help us to build a new home for the dogs in our care.
