The completion date for our building works has had to be put back to 21 January 2019, so although we remain open, we will need to continue the viewing of animals by appointment only, until the new 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 and bad weather in November, has delayed the completion of our project.
Because of the long lead times for such a complicated piece of kit, installation of the new sewage treatment plant will be done early next year. Our new isolation kennels and support block will be virtually completed by the end of this year, but the new four rehoming kennels will need to be fitted out after Christmas.
As all this will continue to cause some disruption, we will 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.
