L-R: Chris Slight, Iain Bevan, Nick McCoy, Liz Milsom and Claire BuglarCentre manager Chris Slight, assistant manager Nick McCoy, canine carers Liz Milsom and Claire Buglar and maintenance worker Iain Bevan all joined Dogs Trust (or National Canine Defence League, as it was then) in 2000. Mr McCoy started out as a canine carer before a promotion to assistant manager, while Mr Bevan swapped spaniels for spanners when he took up the role of maintenance worker.

Dogs Trust chief executive Clarissa Baldwin said: “Chris, Nick, Liz, Claire and Ian have worked tirelessly for Dogs Trust over the past ten years. As well as helping to find homes for thousands of dogs in the last decade, they organised a mass canine evacuation during the terrible local floods in 2007. I would like to say a huge thank you from everyone at Dogs Trust for their dedication and hard work.”

Mr Slight said: “It’s hard to believe that it is actually 10 years since I first started at the Evesham Centre. Dogs have always been a huge part of my life and it has been a joy to have been able to devote every day to them. Thank you so much to everyone I have worked with over the years who have made it such a special time, I am very much looking forward to the next 10 years.”

Dogs Trust Evesham (first opened by the NCDL in 1967 as Broadway Kennels) cares for up to 150 dogs at any one time. If you are interested in rehoming a dog call 01386 830 613 or visit the centre at 89 Pitcher’s Hill, Wickhamford, Evesham, WE11 7RT.
