Dogs at a well-known animal rescue centre will have kennels fit for a king, thanks to a generous donation from Bloor Homes. 

The house builder has given 100 concrete blocks to Binfield Dog Rescue near Wokingham to enable it to refurbish its 24 dog kennels, which are falling into a state of disrepair.
The developer made the donation after sales advisor Natasha Seaborn-Davies, who is based at the Baker’s Place development in Woodley, spotted the rescue’s appeal on its website.

Formed in 1966, Binfield Dog Rescue takes in abandoned and stray dogs from across the area and tries to find them a loving home.
Owner Brian Johnson, who has been running the kennels for the past 18 years, said: “The kennels were second hand when we got them and because they have got metal frames they are rusting quite badly and in urgent need of refurbishment.

“We are extremely grateful to Bloor Homes for their generous donation, which will enable us to refurbish all the kennels and extend their lifespan well into the future.
“We take in dogs that nobody else wants so it’s very satisfying get them into shape and to help find them a good home. We rely entirely on donations to carry out the work that we do so Bloor’s support is hugely appreciated.” 

Natasha, who has two dogs of her own, said: “I have donated several items to Binfield Dog Rescue myself and I know what fantastic work the rescue does with limited resources.

“We were delighted to support their appeal for concrete blocks and we hope the kennel refurbishment will enable the centre to continue delivering this valuable service for many years to come.”

Binfield Dog Rescue is always grateful for donations of pet food and money to pay vet fees.
