Proclene of York Ltd – Kennel 1 - thanks to Mike, Laura, Jamie and the team for their continuous support by providing goods to sell in the shop, deep cleaning (free of charge) all of the 50 kennels and cleaning all the pathways at the York Animal Home.

Kong - Kennel 11 - Thanks to Kong for supplying us with 50 'factory seconds' Kongs for use with our animals, all of which were perfectly usuable.

The day is long in a kennel and these help to break some of the monotony. Thank you. view site>
