How to run a dog shelter


THE FIVE FREEDOMS 
The welfare of animals must take into account five essential ‘freedoms’. They were first developed by the UK government’s independent advisory body on farm animals, the Farm Animal Welfare Council, but they provide a useful benchmark for the welfare of animals in shelters too.

FREEDOM FROM HUNGER AND THIRST
By providing ready access to fresh water and a balanced diet that maintains health and vigour.

FREEDOM FROM PAIN, INJURY AND DISEASE
By prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.

FREEDOM FROM FEAR AND DISTRESS
By ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.

FREEDOM FROM DISCOMFORT
By providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting and sleeping area.

FREEDOM TO EXPRESS NORMAL BEHAVIOUR
By providing sufficient space, proper facilities and appropriate company of the animals’ own kind.

The RSPCA is a charity that has grown into an organisation with more than 110 animal shelters and clinics, as well as specialised veterinary and wildlife hospitals. The RSPCA’s 323 inspectors investigate reports of cruelty, offer advice and information in most cases, or prosecute under UK law when appropriate. The RSPCA also provides advice and support to nearly 400 organisations in 80 countries around the world.

Guidelines for the Operation of an Animal Shelter
Your local animal shelter is the nucleus of your community's animal care and control program. The
shelter should be maintained and operated so that it is attractive and convenient to the community. Most importantly, it should be a place of safety and comfort for the animals. If you are building a new facility, these considerations should be included in your plan.
In addition to the guidelines that follow, information on shelter design and construction is available from The HSUS. It includes guidelines for evaluating the facility needs of your community, sample floor plans, and a list of architects who specialize in shelter design and have worked on a wide range of animal shelter projects around the country.
The HSUS recommends the standards outlined below for any animal shelter, regardless of its size, years in operation, or budget.
