About us

Cheltenham Animal Shelter is a charity that has been helping animals since the 1930s. We provide kennelling for stray dogs from three councils: Gloucester City, Tewkesbury Borough and Cheltenham Borough.

We take in rescue dogs from Gloucestershire Constabulary as well as rehoming dogs, cats and small animals from owners who can no longer look after them for a variety of reasons. Small animals we often have in our care include rabbits, gerbils and guinea pigs.

What to do if you are interested in adopting from us

Please give us a all or visit our website to see what animals we have available for adoption. Alternatively, you can come and visit us during our opening hours: 12 noon until 4pm every day except Wednesdays when we are closed. 12 noon - 3pm on bank holidays. Closed Christmas day.

Any donations are gratefully received. Monetary or food, blankets, hay, straw etc.
