All the staff at Dogs Trust Canterbury would like to welcome you to our rehoming centre. In the 10 years this centre has been open, we have made lots of kind and generous friends and supporters who we need to say a massive thank you to. To anyone who we have yet to meet, we would like to invite you to visit us and see for yourselves the work that we do.
Dogs Trust has been in Kent since 1999 when we took over the site in the small village of Chestfield outside Canterbury. We refurbished the site in 2000 and opened to the public with 24 kennels allowing the centre to care for up to 40 dogs at any one time. In 2009, we expanded the centre and now have 38 kennels and can care for up to 70 dogs and puppies on site.
Dog of the week: Ben
Ben is a 10 year old collie cross who is a charming boy but can be a 'grumpy old man' who likes his space. He is very much set in his ways and does not like to be over fussed. Ben is a kind, gentle boy once you get to know him who is still very active despite his age.
Ben is looking for a quiet home. He still loves his walks despite his age and can live with older children 16 plus. He can be grumpy around other dogs so we feel he is best living as the only dog in the home. Ben is looking for his forever home where he can relax and enjoy himself in his own little way.
Please contact the rehoming centre for more information about Ben on 01227 792505 or visit them at: Radfall Road, Chestfield, Nr Whitstable, Kent, CT5 3ER. Opening times are 12pm-4pm everyday except Wednesdays and we are now open late on Thursdays until 7.30 pm.
Sponsor a Dog - Amelia
Meet our sponsor dog, Amelia. She is our permanent resident at Canterbury and she has lots of friends here. She is a Terrier Cross who loves cuddly toys and her bouncy ball. She enjoys being the centre of attention and going for long walks.
If you'd like to sponsor Amelia or see who lives at our other centres, visit Sponsor a Dog.
Canterbury has a team of staff and volunteers who are passionate about our furry friends and are dedicated to Dogs Trust's mission. Roles within the centre range from management and fundraising to canine care, maintenance and reception. Every role is vital to our cause and together we improve the lives and welfare of 500 dogs on average every year. Why not meet the team?
About Our Charity Shop
We have a charity shop in Herne Bay which helps to raise vital funds for our centre. The shop was kindly donated to Dogs Trust in 2001 and we have a dedicated team of volunteers who have been with us since its opening. We are also able to promote the local Canterbury centre at our charity shop.
If you are interested in the rehoming process and are keen to adopt your own furry friend from us please pop into the centre or call us on 01227 792505.
If adopting a furry friend from us isn't an option, there are plenty of other things you can do to help.
