EVESHAM’S MP Nigel Huddleston ‘paws-ed’ for thought as he was treated to a tour of the Dogs Trust rehoming centre.
It was his first visit to the centre on Pitchers Hill, Wickhamford, last week (August 19) where he met a number of dogs currently waiting for a new home.
New facilities are being built at the centre to provide new kennels and a better environment for our four-legged friends.
Centre manager Chris Slight said: “We were delighted to welcome Nigel to Dogs Trust Evesham. There were lots of waggy tails as he arrived at the centre and it was a great opportunity to show him first hand the work we do for dogs in the local community.
“There are exciting times ahead for Dogs Trust Evesham and we look forward to working with Nigel as we head into the future.”
Mr Huddleston discussed animal welfare issues with the charity and the Dogs Trust’s priorities for the new Parliament.
He said: “I really enjoyed my visit to the Dogs Trust centre near Evesham. The staff were all incredibly enthusiastic about their jobs and the dogs seemed very happy with their environment.
“I was shown the plans for the new facilities currently being built and was very impressed by what is being constructed.
“Dogs Trust not only does a great job at rehousing dogs in need of a new home, but also does some fantastic policy and awareness campaigning which I fully support.
“They deserve special credit for all the work and investment they are putting into microchipping,” he added.
