Basildon (Essex)

Welcome to Essex

Our centres are closed to walk-in members of the public and as of now, we will not be starting the rehoming process for any new adopters. If you are due to take a dog home in the next few days, we will contact you as soon as we can, please bear with us. Anyone who is due to have a rehoming appointment, unfortunately these have been suspended until further notice. Due to Government restrictions, we will be unable to take in dogs to our rehoming centres right now.

If you need urgent help regarding giving up your dog, please contact us immediately and we will offer you as much advice and support as we can. We’d like to reassure you that our wonderful staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs, while avoiding any close interaction with each other.

We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs get fed, walked and looked after. We’d like to say a big thank to you, for your continued support.

Welcome to Dogs Trust Basildon, we are a happy friendly team and would love you to come to visit us at the Centre to see our fantastic facilities and all the waggy tails of our doggy guests. We can care for upto 120 dogs at any one time and our facilities include a training barn, veterinary and surgical suite and a dedicated training and rehabilitation unit to enrich the lives of the dogs in our care.  We have dedicated rehoming staff who have lots of experience in helping match dogs to their forever families and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have about the rehoming process.  

We look forward to meeting you very soon.

Did you know our Supporter Relations Officer (SRO), Kent Lowe, can offer free talks to community groups and organise tours of the rehoming centre?  He also deals with all the local enquiries about donations in memory of a loved one, as well as answering any questions about our free Canine Care Card Scheme or legacies. He also organises the annual Fun Day and helps with the social media coverage for the rehoming centre too!
