This little lad was born at the centre and has certainly stolen the hearts of us all with his cheeky personality. Stuart is living with a condition called Flat Kitten Syndrome which means that his rib-cage is an unusual shape so he has developed much slower than his siblings. His brother Sydney is about twice the size, but this certainly doesn't hold him back and he's still able to do all of the energetic things his siblings g...

We opened our fabulous new store on London Road in Gloucester on 5th November. This great new shop stocks a wide range of pre-loved goods.  Supporters might think of their donations as cast-offs, worn-out, out of fashion or just past their best but to us they are treasure, on a journey to being loved and cherished once again – much like the animals in our care.  We receive some wonderful donations, some bizarre and others beau...

Throughout December, Pets at Home stores across the UK work hard to support the Santa Paws appeal by collecting donations to provide meals for homeless pets. Stores helped provide nearly three million dinners for homeless pets across the country and we have been selected by the Yate store as the beneficiary of their fundraising efforts.

We will kick start the appeal with a weekend of cake sales and a treasure hunt over the...

Sweet little Abby was brought to us by the RSPCA Inspectors as an unhealthy stray with a life threatening abscess on her head. The abscess was clearly painful for poor Abby, and was dealt with swiftly by our amazing vet here at the centre.  

She is now making a healthy recovery as you can see in the second picture taken just weeks after she came to us.

Abby has clearly been owned in the past as she is very affecti...

We are very lucky to have received a generous £5,000 grant from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home!  The money will be used to improve our on-site barn so it can be used as an enrichment area for our dogs. It will be somewhere we can let our dogs off lead safely and freely to enjoy agility equipment which will be great for some of our more energetic dogs. The grant will pay for new dog friendly flooring and equipment so that the space...

We’ve had some very hungry mouths to feed of late and decided to run an appeal for kitten food as we were getting through so much. The appeal was enormously successful and we are unlikely to have to buy kitten food for some time! Thank you to all those who donated and took the time to pop in and drop it off personally. 

The food will soon be used to wean our latest litter of kittens who arrived at the centre five weeks ago:
