Keeping our dogs warm, comfortable and dry whilst they are in our care is a priority and our washing machines and dryers are in constant use here at Hope Rescue. With the recent cases of Parvovirus, we are going through over 100 towels and blankets every single day. To avoid contamination, we are washing on high heat and disposing of items that have been used in positive cases. 

We have three dryers on site at our rescue centre, two have recently broken down beyond repair and the third is on its last legs, making it impossible to dry the mounds of washing. We can't carry on without them so will have to replace all three as a priority before Christmas.

Like everyone's our costs are rising alongside constantly being at capacity. This is the last thing we need and is an additional cost we haven’t budgeted for. Replacing all three machines will cost £2,400 and will keep us going in dry laundry for the next couple of years.
