Kenilworth Centre

Dogs Trust Kenilworth is the largest of our centres and cares for around 180 dogs at any one time.  Thanks to your support, all these dogs will be cared for and loved by our dedicated staff until their forever home comes along.

Every dog, whether it be little or large, young or old deserves to have a loving home. We could have your perfect match waiting for you, so please pop in to visit!

For any rehoming queries or more information on our dogs please contact the centre on 01926 484398. 


The staff took the opportunity to "take over" online to show exactly what a day is like in their world. Check it out here.

Watch some of our dogs in action below having fun in the run!




Forbes is a 7 year old brindle crossbreed. He has been with us a few years now and is fed up in kennels and would really like to find himself the perfect home.  Forbes is a sensitive lad, and is looking for patient new owners who can help him settle into his new home in his own time.  He is a fairly active dog and enjoys doing agility, playing with his toys and meeting doggie friends.  Forbes will need an adult only home and be the only pet.  Forbes is enjoying this wet weather as he loves splashing about in puddles.  Once he knows you, Forbes is very affectionate.

To find out more about Forbes or to enquire about rehoming him please contact the centre on 01926 484398, or drop in during opening hours.  




Keenan is a lovely lad who can be a little nervous around new people. Once he has built up a bond with someone, he will be their friend for life! Keenan has lived in a house before, is housetrained and is happy to be left alone for a couple of hours at a time. He is a very bright dog and likes to have plenty to do - he loves a Kong stuffed with peanut butter!

You can watch a Video of Keenan here

To find out more about Keenan or to enquire about rehoming him please contact the centre on 01926 484398, or drop in during opening hours.   




We have a number of lurchers in our centre at the moment looking for special homes, if you think you could take on one of our lovely lurchers then please phone our rehoming centre for more information on them individually.

Angus is a 4 ½ year old brindle lurcher who has been with us a while.  He is very active and is finding life in kennels difficult. He can live with children 12 years and over as he is quite big and bouncy.  He could possibly live with the right dog but would love to have doggy friends.  Angus is affectionate and intelligent; he has learnt how to ‘sit’ ‘down’ ‘paw’ and ‘play dead’.  Angus is full of fun but still likes to curl up on a comfy duvet.

To find out more about Angus or to enquire about rehoming him please contact the centre on 01926 484398, or drop in during opening hours.
