Inspecting an abandoned cat
A week in an animal centre
Go behind the scenes at the RSPCA’s animal centre in Coventry and meet the animals that need better living conditions.
The Coventry animal centre re-build appeal has been launched in a desperate attempt to raise funds to replace the worn out kennels and service buildings that provided a Safe Haven for over 1,000 animals during 2005.
The estimated cost of the project is approximately £1.3 million pounds and our Coventry RSPCA workers are faced with the challenge of raising at least £600,000 of that money through local fundraising activities, donations and legacies.

We lent a camera to one of the inspectors, Nikki Smith, and she kept a video diary for a week, to show us what life is like in the animal centre. The video also demonstrates why the re-build is needed, with a few personal stories of animals the centre helped during the week of filming.
Plans have already been drawn up for the re-build and subject to planning consent it’s hoped the work could begin in Spring 2008, as long as enough funds have been raised.
