Over the years it has helped to save, care for and re-home hundreds of pets.

"We have taken in dogs that have desperately needed veterinary care and spent thousands of pounds on getting them well," said Emma White, who runs the centre.

"Occasionally dogs come in that have been so terribly let down by humans that in some cases we have been unable to re-home them and have kept them with us to live out their days in comfort."

The centre, which has a non-destruction policy, is self-funded and money comes from adoption fees, fundraising and kind donations from the public.

Founder Jane Fernandez-Lee built the first block of kennels with the help of donations and materials from local businesses.
