Medlock FRB shows its pedigree with dogs' home scheme


£1.6m project to build new adoption block is under way



Medlock FRB shows its pedigree with dogs' home scheme

Medlock FRB has begun a £1.6m project to build a new adoption block at Manchester Dogs’ Home.

The 12,000sq ft facility is being constructed on a former car park at the site on Moss Brook Road, Harpurhey, north Manchester.

The scheme marks the latest stage in the rebuilding of the dogs’ home, which was ravaged by fire in September 2014.

Oldham-based Medlock was appointed following a competitive tender and is due to complete the building by the summer.

Along with 32 kennels for dogs in need of rehoming, the new block will include welfare facilities, offices and a viewing area where visitors can be introduced to the animals they are thinking of taking home.

The money for the new block was raised in a public appeal following the blaze, which also won the support of many celebrities.

Steve Taylor, head of business development at Medlock, said: “It’s great to be involved in this project at Manchester Dogs’ Home, which has a place in the hearts of people across the region and beyond.

“The new building will be a fantastic facility that will enable hundreds of dogs to find loving homes and will bring and joy and happiness to the public and the rescued animals.”

A block for strays is being used as a temporary adoption centre pending the completion of the new building.

Steve Mapley, manager of Manchester Dogs’ Home, said: “The generosity of the public following the fire was amazing and has made it possible to construct the new adoption block, which will be another piece in the jigsaw as we rebuild the dogs’ home and look forward to once again operating at full capacity.

“The modern new facility will provide a better experience for the dogs and the public alike.”

The new block has been designed by Dickinson Waugh Architecture, of Holmes Chapel, Cheshire. The project manager for the scheme is Cinns. The photograph shows how the new block will look.
