About West Calder
Welcome to Dogs Trust West Calder
Manager Susan Tonner and the team look after 37 kennels filled with dogs waiting for their forever homes.
Rehoming from us
The dedicated team here are helping to care for hundreds of dogs every year, who all deserve a loving home for life. Interested in offering a dog in our care a forever home?
Find out how rehoming works.
New dogs arrive at our centre all the time — they will be available for rehoming once we’ve got to know them and identified what they need from their new home. Please visit the website regularly to see the dogs available in our centre.
We’re open for general browsing on Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday from 12 – 4pm. On these days you’ll be able to walk around the centre and see some of the dogs in our care. If you’re interested in a dog, we’ll be able to tell you more about them and help you apply via our online form. We hope to see you soon.
Rehoming info appointments
If you’re sure about adopting but haven’t found the right dog for you, make an appointment for a dedicated chat with one of our adoption advisors. You’ll get a 30-minute session with an experienced member of our team, either over the phone or in person at our rehoming centre. We’ll ask about your lifestyle and the home you can offer, discuss any suitable dogs in our care, and give you advice on finding your perfect match.

We can now accept pre-loved donations of treats, towels and bedding (except feather duvets) at our centres via our contact-free drop off points. You won’t be able to come inside, due to social distancing guidelines, but signage outside will make it clear where you can drop off donations.
Please don’t leave clothing, valuables, electrical equipment, or furniture at our centre drop-off points.
We rely on your kind support to continue our vital work, please donate today.
