*Due to a temporary change of circumstances, Dogs Trust Loughborough will not be opening to the public on the evenings of Mondays and Tuesdays for the foreseeable future. We will continue to open on our Wednesday evenings for the public to view dogs until 7pm.
From the 30th May the rehoming corridor at the centre will be undergoing some building work. Whilst the centre will be open as usual there will be a reduced number of dogs available for viewing. We are replacing fibreglass which produces an odour that some visitors may find slightly unpleasant. We appreciate your patience whilst we work to ensure that our dogs have the best environment possible.
Hi Friends, Please feel free to visit us during our opening times and see our wonderful dogs who are looking for homes and chat to our friendly team. Our reception team will offer you a warm welcome and guide you through our rehoming process and invite you to view the dogs in our rehoming area. Our knowledgeable Canine Carers are on hand to advise you on which dogs are a suitable match to your family and home before providing information on the personality, health and behaviour of your chosen dog. Soon you’ll be heading out for a stroll to get to know one another before agreeing a bespoke plan for rehoming your new family member! Please note that if you live in rented accommodation, we do require proof that dog/s are permitted in the property.
Dogs arrive at the centre daily and will be available to meet once we’ve got to know them and identified what they need from their new home. Please visit the website regularly for photos and updates on the dogs in the centre.
Our dogs can be rehomed all across the UK but please so telephone us in advance if you are travelling a distance so we can ensure you are suitable match for the dog and arrange appointments to suit your needs and the requirements of the dog. Some of our dogs have very specific needs and require multiple visits but please don’t hesitate to call us to find out more about rehoming one of our longer stay dogs.
Did you know our Supporter Relations Officer (SRO), Hannah Graham can offer free talks to community groups and organise tours of the rehoming centre? They also deal 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. They also organise the annual Fun Day and helps with the social media coverage for the rehoming centre too!
We want to exceed your expectation so if you have visited us recently please complete our short survey to help us to continue to improve our services.
Back in 2012, the newly built centre first opened its doors to the public and began finding homes for unwanted dogs. Five years later and with hundreds of dog in new loving homes, the team are celebrating their success by getting ready for summer with the hope of finding even more dogs fabulous new homes!
