Ilfracombe Centre

Representing the South West in lovely Devon, Dogs Trust Ilfracombe is a 45-kennel centre with a lot of lovely dogs seeking loving homes! If you have any queries about rehoming, or a particular dog, call 01271 812 709 or email the centre.

Dogs for Rehoming

Check out photos, descriptions and video for some of our lovely residents seeking homes below!

 

Dog of the Week: Sophie

Sophie is a lovely 8 year old Boxer cross who came into Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre Ilfracombe after personal circumstances meant that her owners could no longer care for her,  unfortunately there was a dog allergy in the family.

Poor Sophie also has allergies so will be on our Shared Adoption Scheme meaning that Dogs Trust will help towards the cost of veterinary treatment.

Sophie is housetrained and has been out with one of our volunteer walkers and was very good.  Her former best friend was a Jack Russell and she now shares with handsome Herb, our greyhound.

She can be a little bit wary of strangers at first and with this in mind we would like her to go to with a greeting visitors programme.  Sophie is a very bright girl and loves her food so training can be fun and does bond well once she knows you and is very loyal.

Sophie would like a quiet home with older children and no cats as in her previous home did like to play chase with them!


 

If you think you can give Sophie the loving, forever home she deserves, then please give our Canine Carers a call at our Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre on 01271 812709, we are open every day between 12noon and 4pm except Wednesday when we are open from 4.30pm until 7.30pm.

 

And a quick reminder:

If you have any queries about rehoming, or a particular dog please call 01271 812 709.

Do you ever wonder who would care for your dog should something happen to you?

Our Supporter Relations Officer, Claire Joselin, can let you know about our free Canine Care Card Scheme, to make sure your four-legged friend’s future is safe.  

She can also help with information about leaving a gift in your will or donating in memory of a loved one.

Claire is here to spread the word about the work we do at Dogs Trust.  She is very happy to come out and talk to groups or can arrange a tour and talk at the newly refurbished rehoming centre.

She also runs some local fundraising events for Dogs Trust Ilfracombe.

Our Education Officer, Stacey Prosser is here to educate the dog owners of tomorrow all about responsible dog ownership and the commitments involved in owning a dog.

She works with primary and secondary schools across Devon, delivering curriculum led workshops that do just this!

These workshops are suitable for all ages and abilities and can be tailored to meet your individual needs.

She also supports local Youth Groups and enjoys providing groups with guided tours of our Rehoming Centre.

We believe that by working with the young people throughout our region – promoting values such as responsibility, compassion and empathy – that we can help dogs to stay in their loving, forever homes.
