Under floor heating 'to keep homeless dogs warm'
A building in Loughborough is to be transformed in the hope of becoming the world's greenest animal rescue centre.
By improving air tightness and ventilation, the charity aims to provide a high standard of comfort for creatures staying at its centre.
Property director Matthew Taylor descried how pooches "like a constant climate between 12 and 18 degrees C" and, as a result, "under floor heating is a good solution".
Once the building is complete, staff will be educated on how to use the available technologies effectively in order to keep energy usage to a minimum.
The Dogs Trust was founded in 1981 under the title the National Canine Defence League and each year the charity's 17 re-homing shelters care for around 16,000 animals.
