Kyna Associates charity day at The Dogs Trust Kennilworth
Kyna Associates were delighted to spend our annual charity volunteering day working at The Dogs Trust in Kennilworth Warwickshire. on 31st May.
The team spent most of the day painting the fences in the dog runs used to exercise the 170 or so furry inhabitants that are either waiting to be re-homed or (if not successfully adopted), be cared for life by the canine charity.
The work is essential to enhance the life of the wood in the runs to ensure the dogs can be regularly exercised in safety.
Some of the team were also fortunate enough to help exercise some of the dogs in the grounds, whilst learning more about the charity, the plight of the dogs and how they came to be homed there
The Charity have a network of Rehoming Centres across the country including the centre in Honiley which cares for 170 dogs at any one time. Dogs Trust also invests in programmes to promote responsible ownership and reduce the number of stray, unwanted and abandoned dogs by promoting neutering, microchipping and education programmes to reach the dog owners of tomorrow.
Danny Martin who has worked for Dogs Trust for 14yrs said:
“We were delighted that the team from Kyna were able to assist us in the maintenance of our grounds and walking some of our grateful four-legged residents. They did a fantastic job and the exercise runs are now looking fit for doggy royalty. Dogs Trust care for nearly 17,000 dogs across our network of 19 Rehoming Centre each year. Kenilworth is the largest Rehoming Centre of all so we are very grateful for the support. We rely entirely on public generosity to help keep our dogs as comfortable as possible whilst they await loving new homes.”
