Hillbrae £20,000 for kennel refurbishment, Support Adoption For Pets

Hilbrae Rescue Kennels provide a rescue and rehoming service for stray dogs across the whole of Telford and Shropshire.

"The process of applying for a Support Adoption For Pets grant was easy to follow on the website. The information about what grants were available was transparent and the team were very friendly and approachable throughout.


We applied for £20,000 and were delighted to be successful. This money enabled us to demolish the last remaining 30 year old kennels and build brand new ones, massively improving the welfare of our dogs. 

The old kennels are very dark and poorly ventilated and we have to shut the dogs away into these spaces at night. The new kennels were designed with an internal corridor and bars instead of doors so the dogs will no longer feel like they are being shut in to a dark confined space, making them less anxious and fretful.

We are delighted with the results and so grateful for the support!"
