A refurbishment to improve animal welfare at a crucial time

Many of the animals we care for require extensive medical treatment, which we are lucky enough to carry out onsite, but we need your help. Built in 2000, our veterinary facilities are operational but fast becoming outdated.

To provide the best quality of care and aid in quicker healing, we need to make some changes, but we need your help.

This year, we’re undertaking an ambitious building project to refurbish and upgrade our facilities, ensuring the best animal welfare and that it will be fit for future generations of animals in need. Our plans include a complete renovation of our current recovery suite into two separate recovery facilities for cats and dogs, ensuring all animals have a safe space to relax and recover post-medical treatment.

"Despite the rising and sometimes overwhelming demand for our services, our commitment to open intake, looking after the animals that most need our care regardless of behavioural traits or medical conditions, remains undiminished.

We cannot stand still, we must work together to create and build a brighter future for all those animals who deserve our love and care."

Rachel Jones, CEO of Bath Cats & Dogs Home



Giving to the Christmas Appeal – a double opportunity

We are excited that our refurbishment project has been selected to be part of the Big Give Christmas Challenge, which gives you the opportunity to double your donation at no extra cost, through match funding. We have a generous beneficiary who will match whatever you donate – so if you give £20, then they will also give us £20. They have agreed to do this up to a total of £8,500.

To ensure that your donation is doubled, donations must be made on the Big Give website, rather than directly to us. Don’t worry – we will get all of your donation, plus it will be doubled! The Big Give Christmas Challenge is open for one week, from 12 noon on Tuesday 28th November until 12 noon on Tuesday 5th December.
