KMFM DJ and presenter, Neil Redding has agreed to come along to the official opening to show his support and also to meet his canine namesake, Redders- a wonderful Bassett Hound.
Commenting on the new build, Neil said:
“I am thrilled to be part of such a positive step towards rehoming so many more dogs from Dogs Trust Canterbury. It is great to see that this new building will allow the dogs that are ready for rehoming to have interaction with the public and staff in a more relaxed and stress free environment.”
He also added:
“Meeting Redders at the official opening will be a huge highlight for me!”
A new training barn has also been built; this is a fantastic facility for helping the dogs to get ready for their new homes and it will also serve as an area for members of the public to bring their own dogs for training classes (details to follow).
Dogs Trust Canterbury Rehoming Centre Manager, Lizzie Reffell said:
“The new build means so much to the dogs and staff. To see the dogs in such a great environment is heartwarming and we look forward to finding homes for lots more dogs in the area. I hope to see an increase in visitors to the Rehoming Centre to meet the fabulous rescue dogs in our care- there will be lots more to choose from. Hopefully people will think more about rehoming a dog rather than buying one. There is also a new car park just waiting to be filled!”
