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.
