Button About Us For over 75 years we have provided 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 on local support to generate funds to enable us to deliver local animal welfare. A substantial proportion of our income is generated by our shops in Stroud, Nailsworth, Tetbury (furniture and electricals), 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 undertaking 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.
