Our ‘Raise the Woof’ Appeal is complete

Thanks to the generosity of so many, we have raised the funds to complete our kennels at the Midlands Training Centre in Leicestershire.

Thanks to significant support from charitable trusts and foundations, corporate supporters, organisations and individuals, we have been able to secure enough funds to build the facilities for our dogs in training.

The kennels house up to 40 dogs, which means that in future years, we will be able to help many more people living with physical disabilities to enjoy greater independence and a better quality of life, by being partnered with our assistance dogs.

Thank you to everyone who has donated to this appeal to make it possible for us to change so many more lives!

The kennels facilities include a veterinary room, grooming area, a quarantine area in case of infection and are temperature controlled for optimal comfort at all times.

The building received its first four-legged guests in February 2020 and we had planned to host a grand opening in April. This was postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak and restrictions, however we hope that one day we will be able to welcome everyone who contributed to its successful completion to the kennels to celebrate with us.

We could not have done this without the support of those who believe in the work we do. So from all of us, a big thank you for helping to make this happen.
