Dogs Trust

Founded in 1891, Dogs Trust (formerly the National Canine Defence League) is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK. Their mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction.

In the meantime Dogs Trust seek to rehome as many dogs as they are able to through their 18 rehoming centres throughout the United Kingdom.

These rehoming centres are built to the best possible standards of animal welfare design and each new or redeveloped centre is an improvement on the last.

Peter Napier has been working with Dogs Trust since 1995 when his first project was the redevelopment of their centre in Roden, Shrewsbury.  Last year (2011) saw the completion of the redevelopment of that centre using up to date sustain able and low energy designs. The outcome was so successful that it has recently won an award from the BRE for its sustainable credentials.

The practice has been responsible for the  design and  contract administration  of the specialised buildings and construction requirements for the centre including veterinary, animal welfare, education and kennelling facilities at this centre and they are currently involved with a Dogs Trust  rehoming centre in Loughborough which is due for completion in April 2012.
