Not long after the CDCH centre opened it’s doors, we were contacted by the RSPCA Inspectors who had recovered more than 40 dogs from a puppy farm. The dogs were all taken to various different centres over the UK to begin their recovery and rehabilitation.

The dogs, mostly Jack Russells, were found in appalling conditions, living in cramped cages in a barn. All of the animals recovered were part of a case, involving the owners o...

Introducing the sniffly but handsome Nelson.

On Wednesday 6th May, a beautiful little male cat was brought to Vale vets by the inspectors after being reported to the RSPCA as an unhealthy feral cat. The Inspectors took him to Vale vets where he was nebulised to help him with his breathing and congestion. Poor Nelson, as he has been named, could barely open his eyes due to them being stuck together with discharge. After spendi...

In late March, just a few days after the government announced public lockdown, The Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home received a call from the RSPCA inspectorate requesting that they take in a little elderly dog named Bobby, whose owner had been taken ill with suspected COVID-19.

Bobby was very quiet on arrival and seemed very distressed. The care team at the centre fell head over heels with little Bobby. He was a true gentleman and ma...

In early March, we received a call at around 8:30pm from a resident in the area to tell us that a dog was tied up outside our Gloucester Clinic premises. It was a cold night and the caller did not know how long the dog had been left there.

A  young lurcher/saluki type dog, was found tethered to some railing, shivering and very afraid. A team member who lived nearby had already arrived to the scene and draped a blanket over the...

As of 05/05/2020 our appeal now stands at a staggering £9,927!! That's 66% of the way there to raising the £15,000.00 matched donation!

We just wanted to thank all of our wonderful supporters to getting us to this point. We really do appreciate it. Without your donations we couldn't continue to provide the essential care for animals in need.

With regards to rehoming, we are still unable to do any face to face viewings...

Remember our cheeky chap Oscar? Our gorgeous 13 year old Patterdale Terrier came into our care in August 2019.

He was desperate to find his retirement home where he could receive all the love and snuggles that he deserved! He had a few failed viewings and just not much luck at all.

Things turned around... HE WAS ADOPTED!! Oscar has now been in his new home for a couple of weeks now and here he is doing what he does best... snooz...

Dear Friends of the Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home

It is with great sadness that we have made the decision to temporarily close all Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home shops from 2pm on Monday 23rd March 2020.   Closing our 10 shops will have a huge impact on our income as we rely on the generosity of the local community to help us raise funds through our shops. Our general fundraising will be also be significantly affected as we have had t...

Peach arrived in our care as a stray after mum was found too unwell to raise her. Raising a kitten without mum is always challenging and the devoted team at the Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home are providing her with round the clock care and monitoring.  This entails regular feeding with a special formula every 2-4 hours throughout the night because her little body cannot survive long without essential nutrients. She also needs to b...

HUGE Thanks to Petplan Animal Live Fund (£4,250 grant) and Petplan Charitable Trust (£5,000) as we have secured an awesome £9,250 grant towards the cost of veterinary bills this year! 

This is amazing news and we are so grateful for their help and support, as each year we budget thousands of pounds for the cost of veterinary fees and treatments.  We predict that the cost of vet fees across rehoming, clinic welfare and neu...
