Ilfracombe rehoming centre (Devon)

Come say hello!

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.

Hello and welcome to Dogs Trust Ilfracombe! We are a 40 kennel centre, set in a beautiful wooded valley near to the long, sandy beaches of North Devon. Our dedicated team of staff and fantastic volunteers are on hand to provide all of our dogs with the best possible care while they wait to find their forever homes.

Every year we find hundreds of loving new homes for stray and abandoned dogs, so come on in for a visit and our friendly staff will help to find the perfect new canine companion for you. You don’t need to make an appointment during opening hours, so please drop in and say hello.

Dogs Trust Ilfracombe underwent a complete refurbishment in 2013 so that we are able to ensure that all of our dogs enjoy their time here whilst enjoying the best possible level of care. With glass fronts and under floor heating in all our kennels, the facilities are now completely state of the art and very comfortable too.

All our dogs would love to find their forever home, so come on down for a visit, where you’ll be greeted by waggy tails and friendly faces. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Did you know our Supporter Relations Officer (SRO), Amy Bingham, can offer free talks to community groups and organise tours of the rehoming centre?  She 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. She also organises the annual Fun Day and helps with the social media coverage for the rehoming centre too!
