To re build our much used dog kennels.
About the project
The money that we are looking to raise will go towards the start up build of new dog kennels. Our existing kennels here at Little Valley Animal Shelter are over 20 years old, in that time they have been a ‘safe haven’ for thousands of dogs, many of whom have been brought in by RSPCA Inspectors having been rescued from neglect or abuse. Over the last two years we have rebuilt our large cattery and provided new accommodation for miscellaneous animals. This has served to highlight the pressing need for a kennels facelift, but it will be expensive – in the region of £1 million. We think our dogs deserve a comfortable, warm kennel while they await their forever home and we hope that, with your help and generosity, we will be able to provide these much needed facilities.
Little Valley Animal Shelter is owned and run by the South, East and West Devon Branch of the RSPCA and is located on the outskirts of Exeter. The Shelter, founded in 1991, supports the work of local RSPCA inspectors by caring for and rehoming over 1000 of the neediest animals from our local area every year.
The South, East and West Devon Branch are a separately registered branch of the RSPCA and responsible for raising funds locally.
All animals stay at the Shelter until they are adopted into caring, responsible homes. A homechecker visits every prospective owner and follow-up checks are made to ensure the animal is well and settled.
The Shelter can accept a wide variety of animals, including dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, rodents, ferrets, aviary birds, poultry and farm animals. We also hold wildlife, pending their transfer to RSPCA West Hatch in Taunton.
