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:
Watch some of our dogs in action below having fun in the run!
Simba is a 6 year old Labrador Cross who has been with us a while. Although he can be a bit nervous with new people Simba is very friendly and affectionate once he knows you. Simba is very intelligent and has learnt a few tricks and his training has helped him feel a lot better and more confident. He will need an adult only home with caring owners who have had dogs before and can continue his training. Although Simba is sociable walking around with other dogs he would need to be the only pet in his new home as he likes his own space at times. Simba should be ok to be left for a few hours on his own when needed.
If Simba isn’t the dog for you but you would still like to home one of our dogs that have been with us a little longer than usual please contact the centre. We are always looking for special homes who have the time to offer that little bit more to dogs who need that little bit more.
To find out more about Simba 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.
The lovely German Shepherd, Max, has been with us for a month now. He came all the way from Ireland so we have no history but we estimate him to be approximately 5-years old.
Max is much happier outside of kennel life where he can play with his ball - as you can see! He can be boisterous and doesn't seem to know his size sometimes.
Any potential owners would need a one-to-one meeting at the centre. He could live with older teenage children and possibly another dog depending on their compatibility.
To find out more about Max or to enquire about rehoming him please contact the centre on 01926 484398, or drop in during opening hours.

Education & School Workshops
Kenilworth is also the base of Scott Spencer, the first Education Officer covering the Midlands area. Scott is a qualified primary school teacher and can offer schools free, fun and interactive workshops teaching about responsible dog ownership and dog welfare.
