Help Dogs Trust redevelop Roden Rehoming Centre
A major refurbishment is underway at Roden which will make it one of the most energy-efficient buildings in the country, as well as giving all dogs state-of-the-art accommodation. All new centres are built with the needs of dogs as our primary concern to help them into new homes as soon as possible.
April 2010 - December 2011
Charity information: Dogs Trust
Dogs Trust Roden has been rehoming dogs since 1970. The centre was built without the knowledge of animal behaviour and proven stress reduction design which now exists. Our research shows people are put off going to a rehoming centre because they believe centres are distressing and full of undesirable dogs. Having first class facilities means we have more visitors as well as less stressed and happier dogs which together enable us to save the lives of more dogs.
State-of-the-art kennels - glass fronted with under floor heating
Vet suite - for routine checks, neutering & minor operations
Intake kennel block - separate block from the main kennels
Specialist puppy unit & bespoke whelping kennel
Training & behaviour block - for intensive remedial training to overcome behaviour problems
Old Dogs’ Home – for dogs too old or frail to cope with kennel life
Spacious exercise areas & woodland walk
Increase rehoming, enabling Dogs Trust to save more of the UK’s stray & abondoned dogs.

What success will look like
Success will be...
Rehoming more dogs, saving more of the UK’s stray and abandoned dogs from destruction in local authority pounds
When the refurbishment is complete we expect to be able to care for more dogs than ever before – previous centres that have been redeveloped have achieved an average increase in rehoming of 50% which translates to over 1,000 dogs a year. An on site Education Officer will also go in to schools and teach children about responsible dog ownership. We believe educating the dog owners of tomorrow can cut the problem of stray and abandoned dogs in the future.
