Why do we need a veterinary centre?
Our charity accepts every dog that needs us, no matter their condition. We are trusted by nine local authorities to receive strays which means that more than half of the dogs are malnourished or have suffered some form of neglect or abuse including multiple injuries or untreated medical conditions.
This means that our veterinary costs have been increasing year on year which has led us to make one of the most important decisions in our charity’s history and build our own veterinary clinic.
Why we need
We care for over 2,500 dogs every year and last year we spent over £230,000 on essential medical care. This level of veterinary costs in not sustainable for our charity. We do not receive any government funding and are entirely reliant on the generosity of our supporters and the local community to be here to care for the dogs that need us.
By running our own veterinary clinic we will be able to significantly reduce the costs of essential medical care and better manage both emergency cases and the ongoing physical health of dogs on their road to recovery.
How to donate
In 2021 we need your support to help us to achieve our vision. We have started building work to create our own veterinary clinic so we can provide all of the medical care needed for all of the dogs at our Solihull and Wolverhampton rescue centres, as well as helping as many dogs and cats as we can from charities in the surrounding area.
Our new veterinary clinic will include an X-ray room, operating theatre, two wards, three consultation rooms, dental room and isolation ward.)
