“Thank you so much,” says the team at Hope Rescue. “This has made a huge difference. The original concrete floors were difficult to clean due to the uneven surface. The new tiled floors are much easier to clean, so takes less time for the staff and volunteers whilst also reducing biohazard risks.”

“It has been a difficult year and the completion of this project has brought some much-needed cheer to the team,” says the charity. “As you can see, our dogs fully approve too!”
