When it comes to dog care, our rehoming centres are best in show, and Dogs Trust Cardiff is no exception! Spread over eight acres, its facilities and devoted staff will provide our dogs with all they need to feel safe and happy, and to get back on their paws to be rehomed.

Everything at the centre has been designed with dogs in mind, from the fully equipped grooming suite, to each of its 74 kennels, with underfloor heating so that our dogs can be cosy or cool all year round. 

There’s plenty of room to play, with 20 exercise paddocks, and a specially landscaped area for practising lead walking. We also have an airy training hall, perfect for teaching dogs of any age new tricks! Cardiff’s learning amenities extend to dog owners, with Dog School classrooms on site.

The centre has comprehensive veterinary facilities, including a physiotherapy and hydrotherapy suite, to meet our rescue dogs’ needs. Cardiff rehoming centre also has a specialist puppy rearing suite, with two large puppy kennels and a whelping room for any pregnant mums.

Rehoming from us

The dedicated team here are helping to care for hundreds of dogs every year, who all deserve a loving home for life. Interested in offering a dog in our care a forever home?

Find out how rehoming works.

New dogs arrive at our centre all the time — they will be available for rehoming once we’ve got to know them and identified what they need from their new home. Please visit the website regularly to see the dogs available in our centre.

Visiting us

Open days

We’re open for general browsing on Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday from 12 – 4pm. On these days you’ll be able to walk around the centre and see some of the dogs in our care. If you’re interested in a dog, we’ll be able to tell you more about them and help you apply via our online form. We hope to see you soon.

Rehoming info appointments

If you’re sure about adopting but haven’t found the right dog for you, make an appointment for a dedicated chat with one of our adoption advisors. You’ll get a 30-minute session with an experienced member of our team, either over the phone or in person at our rehoming centre. We’ll ask about your lifestyle and the home you can offer, discuss any suitable dogs in our care, and give you advice on finding your perfect match.
