Major plans to refurbish a pet rehoming centre have been approved by Aberdeen City Council.
Seaton-based Mrs Murray’s Home for Stray Dogs and Cats submitted plans for the revamp in December.
Speaking to Evening Express, manager Marnie Simpson said: “Where we are at the moment is not fit for purpose and it got to the stage where the reception area either had to be refurbished or rebuilt.
“The new two-storey building will make a huge difference to our working environment.”
The new plans include a 24-hour access for Police Scotland, where they would be able to drop off stray dogs at any time.
It also includes two private rooms for owners to bring their pets for rehoming and staff facilities, which include self-contained flats and a meeting room.
