The completion date for our building works has had to be put back to 21 December 2018, so although we remain open, we will need to continue the viewing of animals by appointment only, until the end of the year.
Due to new Environment Agency requirements for disposing of our sewage, our old cesspit and soakaways need to be replaced by a new sewage treatment plant. Sourcing an acceptable system, together with unforeseen problems with our existing drains, has delayed the completion of our project.
Because of the long lead times for such a complicated piece of kit, although the kennels and support block will be completed by the end of this year, installation of the new sewage treatment plant will be done early next year.
As this installation will cause some disruption, we may need to extend the appointment only system for viewing our animals until everything has been completed.
Thank you to all our supporters for their patience so far and we apologise for any inconvenience that this delay may cause.
