The Beast From The East

Due to adverse weather we will be closing early today. 

Viewings and adoptions will be closing at 4.00pm

Reception closes at 5.00pm

We will update daily of any future changes over the week. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Ground Maintenance 6th & 7th November

On Monday and Tuesday next week we will be carrying out some maintenance to our pathways.

This means that we will have to close the viewing walkways around the dog kennels and will be unable to open for viewing or adopting dogs for these 2 days.
The cat section is unaffected, as are the shop and boarding kennels.

We expect to be fully open again from Wednesday 8th November.

Apologies for any inconvenience. 

Winter Opening Hours

Now the clocks have gone back we will be putting a hold on Late Night Opening until the Spring.

We will be closing at 6.00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays rather than 7.00pm and then back to 5.30pm eventually to tie in with other week days.

You will find our up to date opening times on the Opening Times page of the website or on our Facebook page.


Bank Holiday Monday Opening

We will be open from 9.00am in Reception as usual.

Dogs Home viewings from 11.30am until 4.00pm

The Vets, Groomers and Water Walkies will be closed all day.

Reception will close at 4.00pm but Boarding Clients will still be able to collect their pets until 7.00pm if paid in full or until 5.00pm if not. 


Mac & Campbell Update

Since there was a lot of interest in these guys we’re just updating you on their progress.

We apologise to anyone that’s been looking out for them as we’ve had a hectic few days but they have found another new home together over the weekend.

All parties concerned concluded that they were best completely removed from the situation they found themselves in recently for their own sake.

A fresh haircut from Lorraine at The Groomers and a fresh start with a new family should be the happy ending they deserve! 

New Sunday Opening Hours

From Sunday 2nd July we will be changing our opening hours for Sundays.

We will be opening at 12.00 noon for Rehoming, the Pet & Horse Feed Shop and The Groomers (every other week). The Vets and Water Walkies remain closed on Sundays.

We will be closing at 4.00pm.

For boarding arrivals and collections before 12 and after 4 there will be a contact number available on the door for clients to call a member of staff to arrange this so these will not be affected.

Mac & Campbell

We’ve been to visit Mac & Campbell today in their new home so we thought we’d give you an update!

These guys came into us in a pitiful state. Their coats were matted and had urine and faeces caked into them.








We dread to think what state they would have been in if they had been left like this during the scorching weather we’ve had recently.

Lorraine, the groomer here could do nothing but shave them completely and give them a good bath!

Now they were clean and comfortable they could have their vet checks, vaccinations, get microchipped and neutered ready to look for a new home. Needless to say their skin was a bit sore but thankfully they were otherwise in good health.

All the staff worked hard getting them ready for a new owner and finding them the right home……a couple of weeks later it looked like their efforts had paid off!

It was lovely to see the pair of them happy again and already settling well into their new home. Their new owner is very grateful to the staff at the Home (and we’re sure Mac and Campbell are too!) and look forward to their future together.

We look forward to keeping in touch with them all and keeping up with their progress.

Lots of luck,

The Manager

P.S. If you think you could provide a forever home for Pippa or Wendol (our longest residents) or any of the other dogs that have been waiting a long time for homes, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
