Charity number


Cheltenham Animal Shelter is a charity that has been helping animals since 1926. Based in the heart of Gloucestershire, we rescue and re-home unwanted and abandoned stray cats, dogs and small animals.

Each year we care for around 1000 animals at a cost of £500,000 without the help of any Government funding. We rely greatly on the generosity of animal lovers like you to ensure that our doors remain firmly open.

We also provide kennelling for stray dogs and also take in 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.

The mission of Gloucestershire Animal Welfare Association and Cheltenham Animal Shelter is: "to provide shelter for homeless domestic animals from across the county whilst attempting to locate appropriate new homes. We also aim to educate members of the public in correct and appropriate animal husbandry through education programmes".

We are a member of the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes and we adhere to, and exceed, their code of practice. In doing that we are very careful to ensure that each and every animal goes to the right home.
