After hours cages

After hours cages are available for the safe housing of stray domestic animals rescued by members of the public, outside of our regular opening hours.

The cages are located at the front gates of the facility and are equiped with bedding and water bowls to ensure the safety of stray animals. The cage doors lock automatically when shut and allow for the safe keeping of all animals until the centre reopens.
