Take a peek behind the scenes at Dogs Trust Evesham
For one night only Dogs Trust Evesham is offering an exclusive behind the scenes tour and is inviting local people along for a sneak peek of what goes on day-to-day at its state-of-the-art rehoming centre.
The rehoming centre in Wickhamford underwent a two year rebuild which was officially completed a year ago. It’s one of the largest Dogs Trust rehoming centres - caring for up for 120 dogs at any one time and rehoming around 900 dogs per year.
They currently play host to 20 different breeds of dog – from Labradoodles to Lurchers, Shar Peis to Staffies. Fifty members of staff keep the centre running which includes canine carers, training and behaviour advisors and vets, as well as a dedicated army of 100 volunteers.
Taking place on 12th April from 6pm, guests will be able to see the centres facilities in all its glory including the modern glass-fronted kennels, exercise paddocks and specialist training and behaviour facilities as well as areas not usually open to the public including puppy kennels and the veterinary suite. There will also be the chance to meet some of the team and hear from staff, management, veterinary team and behaviour advisors about life at the rehoming centre.
Tracey Spiers, Dogs Trust Evesham Assistant Manager said:
“We’re extremely proud of our facilities and thought what better way to show them off than to open our doors for an exclusive behind the scenes tour to really show people the level of care that goes into looking after our dogs.
“As well as getting to see some of our furry residents chilling out in their kennels, it’s a great opportunity to come and see areas that are not usually on view to the public but are so important for the dogs welfare and help to make their stay with us as comfortable and enjoyable as possible whilst they await their forever homes.”
The behind the scenes tour will take place on Thursday 12th April from 6pm. It will involve walking for approximately 90 minutes around our site so please call in advance to discuss any mobility concerns you may have. There is no charge but donations are gratefully accepted. Places are limited so you must register in advance by calling the rehoming centre on 01386 835 840 or email Tracey here.
