Bark Inn Kennels is moving from its current home in Atherstone to a new, more central location in Walsall.
March 24, 2014 (Newswire) - The move is part of an exciting expansion for the kennels, which specialises in boarding and rehoming greyhounds.
The new, larger premises is based in Aldridge and will provide additional facilities, including an enclosed gallop where dogs can exercise freely and a large field where fundraising fêtes and dog training events can be held. It will also offer further kennel space for greyhounds looking for forever homes.
Based in the countryside, the kennels is close to a wood and a park, which will provide great opportunities for dog walking. Its busy roadside location, with prominent signage, will also help to attract interest from passers by.
Manager, Michelle Owen, said: "All of us at Bark Inn are really excited about the new premises. There is still a lot of work to be done, but it will all be worth it in the end. "
As an independent rehoming organisation, we rely on sponsorship and donations. We would be very interested to hear from any local tradespeople prepared to volunteer their services in assisting with the refurbishment of the new premises. Specifically, we are looking for carpenters, builders, plumbers and electricians.
"We will also be looking for another member of staff and plenty of volunteers to help with dog-walking and general running of the kennels."
Anyone who is interested in helping with the refurbishment, or volunteering at the Greyhound kennels, should contact Michelle directly by calling 07828 609201 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
