Friends of Birkenhead Council Kennels (FoBCK) was formed in response to a massive public petition demanding better facilities for Wirral's homeless dogs.
Many dogs find themselves at the council kennels, not because they are bad or dangerous but because, through circumstances, they have no owner.
FoBCK volunteers together with Kennel staff help to feed and care for them - but we can't take them all home.
The 36 available kennel spaces are often full and when space is tight and more dogs are coming in, there is no choice but to put the animals to sleep - placing even greater emphasis on the urgent need to re-home dogs.
By joining our lottery, you will be helping us to improve both the care and future prospects for Wirral's many abandoned and homeless dogs.
In the short term we are helping to improve the existing facilities and promote adoptions.
Our long term goal is to relocate the kennels to a place where the dogs can have comfortable indoor and outdoor runs and access to outside space for exercise and play.
Your support helps us to provide improved facilities and help as many homeless dogs as possible find their forever home.
