Covid-19 update: our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing, but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with measures in place to keep staff and adopters safe. Find out more about how national Covid-19 restrictions are affecting our rehoming procedures and other activity.

Basildon (Essex)

Welcome to Essex

Our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with new processes in place to keep staff, visitors and adopters safe.

For dogs we know will thrive straight away in their new home, we’re matching them with their new homes virtually and delivering them contact-free. Current restrictions mean we can only facilitate adoptions local to our centres and not across Countries or anywhere there are travel restrictions. We’re not able to make appointments for dogs to meet their family before going home, but we can register interest to arrange appointments when restrictions ease.

We’re currently experiencing an unprecedented amount of interest, with some dogs getting several hundred applications. Please bear with us, we’re doing everything we can to find our dogs their forever homes.

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!
