RSPCA Rochdale and District
Pedigree Pens provided a facility of 27 pens.
The centre in Redcross Street, which will include the new cattery, supplied by ourselves, replaces a smaller facility
on the same site.
The old centre, built in 1963, closed its doors in July 1999 when it became clear the building no longer met modern standards. Domestic pets then had to be taken to other RSPCA centres or to private kennels and catteries, which meant inspectors and animal collectors sometimes had
to travel up to 30 miles.
But help came from the St John Ambulance Brigade,
housed next door. The brigade allowed the RSPCA to extend its old premises to create a new cattery and administration block.
