Animal rescue centre in Hayle celebrates 5 years
For five years the National Animal Welfare Trust in Hayle has been rehoming animals.
A small gathering of volunteers and fundraisers from the past and present were invited to the centre on Saturday to mark the anniversary.
Having recently moved to a new centre, the celebrations were also a way for guests to see what facilities the trust now has to rehome unwanted strays from across Cornwall.
Louise Clarke, centre manager, said: “Those that helped raise funds to pay for the new centre we are in now came. The mayor of Hayle very kindly attended the celebration and to mark the five years we had a tree which the mayor planted for us.

“We are very privileged to have such a well-designed centre which has been designed for the animals, with their pens having under floor heating and air circulation systems to help keep the air fresh.”
The new building was developed with environmental sustainability in mind.
It has a wind turbine that covers the cost of all of electricity, solar panel units that heat the water and a recycle water system to enable the centre to use rain water for hosing out the pens and flushing the toilets.
The rescue centre houses 24 dog pens and 20 cat pens used to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome some 300 animals every year.
