Our first rescue and re-homing centre, the Watford site had previously been a commercial boarding facility since at least the 1930s, and during the Second World War was advertised as a safe place to evacuate your pets to from London to avoid the Blitz.

The four and a half acre site is still providing a place of safety and rehabilitation to more than 400 animals a year.

Come and visit and you’ll be sure of a warm welcome. 

Animals

We rehome around 400 cats and dogs at our Hertfordshire centre every year. Every animal has been individually assessed and cared for by our experienced and dedicated staff. All animals are vet-checked, neutered, vaccinated, wormed and microchipped before being rehomed.
