RSPCA South Cotswolds Branch Since 1962 the RSPCA South Cotswolds has offered animal welfare services in Gloucestershire to prevent cruelty, promote kindness to and alleviate suffering of animals. We provide rehabilitation, re-homing and fostering of animals without a home and reduced fee veterinary services. Our branch has a very ambitious plan to build the much needed Cotswolds Dogs and Cats Home. We have high levels of unwanted animals in the area, some of which have been living lives filled with abuse, neglect and illness. The home will serve thousands of animals providing them a refuge while we find them loving forever homes. The home will cost 2.5 million to build and we need your help to make this dream a reality. www.cotswoldsdogsandcatshome.org.uk Registered Charity No. 207006

The Cotswolds Dogs and Cats Home Appeal Page
RSPCA South Cotswolds Branch is raising funds to build a new rehoming centre called the Cotswolds Dogs and Cats Home. There is an urgent need for such a facility in the area where we are currently unable to meet the high demand of animals requiring new homes through no fault of their own. Currently the branch’s dogs and cats are housed in separate establishments therefore, we do not have the capacity to take in all of the animals that need our help. Sadly, we still encounter significant animal cruelty and abandonment within the area. We are also seeing a large increase in animals coming into our care from broken homes or from situations where people have lost their homes; these animals are the silent victims of the recession. Just like us, animals need a place where they can be cared for, feel safe and no harm can come to them. The Cotswolds Dogs and Cats Home will be this place of sanctuary.
The Cotswolds Dogs and Cats Home will provide -
- A safe place in Gloucestershire for abandoned, unwanted, neglected and abused animals
- A high level of care for every animal, ensuring all of their needs are met
- A place that engages with the community including local schools, residents and businesses, providing a service to the whole area
- Each animal a fresh start, with a carefully selected loving family
- A place that changes the perception of animals in rescue
This ambitious and much needed facility will cost 2.5 million pounds which means we can address the unmet needs of abandoned, neglected and unwanted family pets and ensure the long term welfare and protection of our animal companions.
Plans for the Cotswolds Dogs and Cats Home include -
- Spacious accommodation for up to 27 dogs set into the landscape and opening up towards the fields beyond
- Bespoke cat pods for up to 36 cats with large window looking out over the garden
- An area for small animals with bespoke hutches and runs with large screen windows connecting to the landscape and hutches placed within meadows to allow grazing
- Animal spaces which exceed the national standards
- High quality isolation facilities
- Veterinary treatment rooms
- Late drop off facilities for inspectors and dedicated on-site staff 124 hours a day, 7 days a week
