Charity specifies ‘inspiring’ base for neglected pets

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) has launched a competition to find architects for a new £4.5m animal centre in north west England.

It said the facility – earmarked for an unidentified 3.2ha site – would need to be able to house around 40 dogs, 60 cats and a further 20 small animals.

The centre would also need to provide a veterinary suite, offices for 10 staff, a reception area and grooming facilities, documents for the RIBA-run competition said.
