Welcome to Dogs Trust Leeds Rehoming Centre. The dedicated team here are waiting to welcome you and help find homes for the hundreds of dogs we care for ever year, every one of which deserves a loving home for life. Please feel free to drop in during opening times and talk to us about the wonderful dogs we're looking after.
If you have any general / rehoming queries, or want to ask about a particular dog, please call us on 0113 281 4920 or email the centre reception.

Dogs Needing Homes
Chance is a very handsome 8 month old Lurcher.
Unfortunately Chance was born deaf and so will take time to train. But being young and still having plenty of growing to do, means he will pick things up well
Chance would suit a home with people who have experience of deaf dogs. He lacks confidence around other dogs so would need to be the only dog in the home. He may be happy living with older children.
To find out more about Chance please call Dogs Trust Leeds on 0113 281 4920 or pop into the centre during opening hours!

Inside the Pets at Home store in Birstall in Leeds is a new Dogs Trust Adoption and Advice Centre
The Dogs Trust team based at the Pets at Home Adoption and Advice Centre are Karen, Neil, Amanda, Marion, Julie and Emma. We all work between the store in Birstall as Adoption Advisors and at the centre as Canine Carers.
Our Adoption and Advice Centre provides another venue within Leeds for people to speak to us about rehoming a dog and all the other schemes offered by Dogs Trust. Every day, a member of the team takes a dog from the rehoming centre to the store to meet the public and hopefully attract some potential new owners.
The Adoption and Advice Centre is open:
Monday to Friday 10am – 7pm
Saturday 10am – 6pm
Sundays 11am – 5pm.
We have now rehomed over 40 dogs as a result of people initially visiting the Adoption and Advice Centre and lots more customers have taken home finding questionnaires and countless leaflets which we hope will result in many further adoptions and funds raised, as well as awareness for Dogs Trust as a whole.

We believe that educating the dog owners of tomorrow can help reduce the problem of stray dogs and mean that more dogs will find a home for life from the word go. There are loads of teacher resources and fun games on www.learnwithdogs.org.uk, but our Education Officer Donna Sayce is also available to run free workshops for schools throughout Yorkshire, and can conduct tours of the centre. Contact her if you're interested:
