More animals cared for as Billesdon based kennels expand in size

Staff members at Leicester Animal Rescue, an animal shelter situated in the Billesdon area of Leicestershire, are thrilled to announce the growth of their kennels. Prior to this business advancement, the animal shelter was limited to tending to just 16 animals. However, 28 animals are now able to fit comfortably into the surroundings, bringing new prospects to homeless and ill-treated animals.

This development has presented itself due to the kind donations from animal lovers in the area. Money used for the building of kennels came from a charity shop in Evington Road and from contributions through wills. Fiona Price, a member of staff at the shelter said:

“If animals come in together they can stay together in the shelter even if they can’t be rehomed together.”

BBC East Midlands Today organized for Anne Davies, a presenter for the BBC team, to officially re-open the newly constructed kennels. Since this opening in March, staff members at the Leicester Animal Rescue have cared for many cats and dogs that have been given up by previous owners. With more space for 12 additional animals, the team are able to successfully restore health and happiness for animals while searching for a new and loving home.

The sad fact is that the animal rescue centre is constantly full due to its humble size. Despite this, people who are able to prove they have a continual home for dogs can welcome their new addition almost immediately, enabling more room for other deprived dogs.
