Visitors cannot walk around the catteries and kennels to see the animals, instead registered adopters are invited by appointment to meet their suitable matches. We can arrange visits for those interested in supporting us. 

Our donation area is open from 9am-5pm every day. You can leave pet and charity shop donations here. Please note that we do not take duvets, pillows, sleeping bags or mattresses. For more details about donating, please see Donating goods below.

Visiting the rehoming centre

This year, we’re undertaking an ambitious building project to refurbish and upgrade our facilities, ensuring the best animal welfare and that our charity will be fit for future generations of animals who need our care. 

Our plans include a complete renovation of our Veterinary Suite, a new roof for the main building, and reconfiguration of the offices which will make room for a dedicated adoption room. The Veterinary Suite will soon have two separate recovery facilities for cats and dogs, ensuring all animals have a safe space post-medical treatment. Amongst other benefits, it will reduce recovery time so cats and dogs can be ready for adoption sooner.

Whilst we have construction work on our main building, we will have temporary offices and a different entrance/car park.
