Ilfracombe rehoming centre (Devon)

Come say hello!

Our rehoming centres are not open for public browsing but you can still make an appointment to adopt or bring a dog to us.

We’ve set up new processes which include social distancing measures to help keep staff, visitors and adopters safe.

We’re now matching dogs with their new homes virtually and delivering dogs contact-free. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can now meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment and this now applies to all of our rehoming centres in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

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!
