Location

Situation

More and more animals are being abandoned or mistreated so the need for a "safe house" is imperative. This will be a place where animals can be assessed and treated. The responsibility of strays falls to the local authorities whose budgets appear to be more restricted. The safe house will help us to respond to emergencies brought to us from the police, social services, hospitals and council housing departments.

Solution

A sanctuary would allow us to accept more of the requests we receive on a daily basis. It would take the pressure off the dog pounds and in turn save the local authorities money which will help save council tax payers money. The recession has increased the number of calls we get and it is so hard to turn away animals. Premises would mean that the emergencies we get, could be accepted without having to find a foster home at short notice. Unwell dogs could also be nursed in isolation.
