Dogs Trust

UPDATE: Our rehoming centres are closed until further notice, however we are now able to rehome a small number of our amazing dogs. Each dog’s profile will let you know if they are looking for a new home. For the time-being, we are unable to register your interest for dogs who are not yet available for rehoming.

Loughborough

Come and say hello!

Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public, but we are now able to start looking for new homes for some of the amazing dogs in our care. At the moment, there are only a small number of dogs who are ready for their new home, and we expect them to be very popular. Please bear with us once we have received your enquiry, and we will be in touch to talk further about whether you could be a perfect match! .

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.

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 Officers (SRO), Hannah Graham and Ella Tonge 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!
