We are building the new Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home. It will be a centre of excellence for local animal welfare. Not only will it allow us to triple the number of animals we can currently assist but it will also give us the facilities and space we need help animals for generations to come.

Situation

Nationally, convictions for animal abuse and cruelty have risen by over 34% during the last two years. It is estimated across the UK that one pet an hour is euthanized due to a lack of facilities to house them until they can be rehomed. At present we have no physical re-homing speace of our own, meaning we are able to help, on average, 250 animals per year across the Cotswolds area. It is estimated, however, that there are approximately 2,000 animals who are need within this region.

Solution

To address this situation the Trustees undertook a review of its current structure, facilities and services to decide how best meet this rising need. The completed review has shown that the only way to accommodate the increasing numbers of animals who need our help is the establishment of a new centre for their care in the Cotswolds. In the first year alone the new centre will allow us to care for three times the number of animals we are currently able to assist.
