Gorgeous Ariel

Ariel 02Gorgeous Ariel is so sweet and being such an oldie takes life at a relaxed pace and just wants some love and attention.

She has been with her owner since she was 8 weeks old and circumstances meant he had to make the extremely hard decision to give her up.

At 14 years old she has never been in kennels so is very confused and sad wondering why her life has suddenly changed so much and everything she knew is gone.

Ariel 01We are determined to find someone as soon as possible to give Ariel the comfort and security she needs in her old age. She deserves a place to retire to so she can enjoy what time she has left knowing she is loved and wanted.

And little Roco - a lot of heart, in your home?

Roco Staffie BoyFabulous Roco is a proper bundle of joy. He has come in to our care through no fault of his own and is looking for another family to love and be loved. Roco has loads of energy, is full of fun and his wonderful smiley face just makes you laugh when he comes bounding up to you to say hello.  He plays nicely with other dogs and needs someone at home a lot of the time so he can enjoy their company and be involved in lots of nice walks.  He is great with children so can be homed with kids of 7+.

Roco loves his toys and plenty of rough and tumble. We love Roco very much and are determined only the best will do for his next home so he can truly have a happy forever after.  Could you be his next home?

For more information about Roco and all re-homing enquiries, please call Nicola on 07772 737 503.

Button About Us Across our area, our work is focused on providing welfare for local animals. As well as finding new homes for many unwanted animals each year, we provide a twice weekly veterinary clinic, reduced fee neutering and veterinary help vouchers for people within the community on income support. We are an independent charity and rely wholly on local support to generate funds to enable us to deliver animal welfare. A substantial proportion of our income is generated by our shops in Stroud, Nailsworth, Wotton-under-Edge and Cirencester. We are always looking for people who are willing to help out and for donations of good quality, saleable items. You could really make a difference.

The Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home

The Branch is about to launch a capital appeal to raise £2.5m to build The Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home; find out more on Cotswolds TV.  Once built, the home will provide a safe place for abused, neglected and abandoned animals from across Gloucestershire for many generations to come.  For more information about this exciting project and how you can help build the future for animals in need, simply click here.  To see the local newspaper coverage from the 12th December 2013 (in the Stroud News & Journal) click here.

Adopt one of theseThinking of getting a pet?  Have a look at the list of animals we currently have available for adoption.  You could find yourself with your new best friend.  The list is split into three - cats, dogs and [other] small animals, e.g. hamsters, gerbils, etc.  Adopting an animal that really needs a home can be one of the most rewarding things you can do.
