Benvardin Kennels facing closure at 5pm tonight.

1 Mins read

At the end of January, the site on which Benvardin Animal Rescue Kennels is based was put up for sale by it’s owners, the USPCA.

This spurred a massive fundraising campaign in a bid to save the kennels. Within a number of weeks, BARK raised the £45,000 they needed to pay a deposit on the land. All seemed well and it looked like the future of the Animal Rescue Centre was secured.

However, late last night, Benvardin were given a nasty surprise when they learned that somebody had outbid them by £5000 for the land, less than 24 hours before the deadline.

BARK now need to raise £5000 before 5pm to be in with a chance of securing their future. If they fail, then the land will be sold and the centre will close.
