In the first week of May, the inspectors called having caught an unhealthy ‘feral’ cat in a trap. The young male cat was in a terrible state, his eyes were almost sealed shut with infection and his breathing was restricted due to his nose streaming with mucus.

Nelson was admitted to Vale vets where he received treatment and was monitored every 30 minutes to clear his airways.

After a couple of days, the CD...

Wilf first came into the care of Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home early February 2019. Wilf was bought into us by an RSPCA inspector at 9 months old. He had been restricted to a very small outside area with 2 other puppies. Being restricted to such a small area wasn't what any dog deserves.

Due to his living conditions before he came into our care, Wilf hadn't been exposed to many day to day things. He was a bouncy puppy, of cou...

We are appealing for your help - Noah has had extensive surgery but we now need to get him the hydrotherapy he needs to help his leg recover.....

‘April showers’ appeared early this year which caused floods across the UK in February and March. As these horrific floods were happening around us, an RSPCA Inspector attended an emergency incident in Gloucester after calls had been received that a dog was stuck in rising flood water...

With the restrictions being lifted slightly, we are very excited to announce we are able to start to re-open our charity shops!

The centre has lost around £30,000 per month from shop profits since the start of lockdown. This news means we can ensure the centre has the funds it needs to continue to support animals in need.

We have included some information about the re-opening below including dates of re-opening, donation details...

We believe that no animal should go without veterinary care when they need it most.  A vital part of the work that we do at CDCH is supporting pets belonging to financially vulnerable families, ensuring that no animal is left to suffer because of cost. 

We run three weekly clinics, these are held in Gloucester, Stroud and at our centre in Cam near Dursley.  The Clinics are available to pet owners who are in receipt of mean...

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...
