Our aim as a rehoming centre is to cater for the individual needs of each dog and to find them the right home and family. Our kennel area is restricted to staff only but we will introduce suitable dogs to new families, where it will be less stressfull for all, please contact us for more details: 01604 880003.

We are happy to rehome within a 50 mile radius of our centre and new families must be prepared to visit their new dog several times before a home visit can be arranged.
