You might think an animal re-homing charity would want as many visitors as possible - but the Wood Green centre in Cambridgeshire plans to restrict the number of people allowed into its dog kennels.
Staff at the centre in Godmanchester say too many visitors can over-excite the dogs and encourages bad habits - and from now on only people genuinely wanting to adopt a dog will be let in. So from Monday the number allowed into the kennels will be restricted.
The centre has more than 30 dogs that need a new home. Wood Green gets about 250,000 visitors each year and when staff carried out a survey they discovered only 15% of them actually come to the centre with the intention of rehoming a dog.
Visitors can still come to see the other animals at the centre, but they will have to speak to staff before seeing the dogs.
In future these dogs who have been left needing a new owner, will only see visitors who genuinely want to offer them a home.
