Solihull Council Planners have given their seal of approval to plans for a new purpose-built “dog rescue and welfare centre.”:http://www.www.associated-architects.co.uk/projects/community/birmingham-dogs-home/
New, state-of-the-art facilities will include kennel and exercise areas, veterinary facilities and a behavioural suite. In addition, education rooms will support the outreach work of the charity and its links with the local community. The site layout has been designed specifically to create a calm environment which will minimise stress-related barking.
Simon Price, General Manager of “Birmingham Dogsâ€™ Home”:http://www.birminghamdogshome.org.uk/, said:
_â€œWe have been overwhelmed by the support that has been given to our proposals by the planning officers at Solihull Council as well as by the wider community. Moving to a new site will be a very significant step for Birmingham Dogsâ€™ Home and the new facilities will greatly improve the quality of life for dogs in our care.â€œ_
