At Kingfisher Windows, we regularly support the local community in various ways. For 25 years we have helped to build strong relationships between local charities and organisations by making donations and working on projects in the local area. Our latest community project involved supplying and fitting two double glazed panels with cat flaps to Whitehall Dog Rescue, based at Greenacres Farm, East Ardsley, Wakefield.
The two panels are designed to provide access to and from two new purpose built cat houses for eleven stray cats. The project is the latest development in an ongoing relationship between Whitehall Dog Rescue and Kingfisher Windows.
Saving local animals’ lives
Whitehall Dog Rescue was established in 1992 by Brian Wheelhouse, who, after hearing about the short life expectancy of dogs found by dog wardens, decided to set up a charity to provide sheltered accommodation for stray dogs. Whitehall Dog Rescue operate a strict no kill policy. No healthy dog will ever be put down, and if a dog can’t be re-housed it will join the Permanent Resident’s Club.
The Whitehall Dog Rescue became a registered charity in 2005. Over recent years, large investments have meant that the kennels have considerably grown and improved. The latest growth has been the addition, by Kingfisher Windows, of the two new cat dwellings. Over the years, Kingfisher Windows have helped with several installations at Greenacres Farm including providing glazed products for a ‘doggy sunroom’.
Working together with local businesses and charities is part of our community focus at Kingfisher Windows. By working together, we can create a better environment for everyone who lives in West Yorkshire. Not only can we provide financial help and installation expertise, but we can also share our experience which can be greatly beneficial to all involved.
