Burford rehoming centre
Welcome to Burford rehoming centre. We have horses, dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and other small animals looking for loving homes.
We have around 110 acres and share our home with the Blue Cross head office which was opened in 1990.
Passport to Pet Care education days for kids
Our Passport to Pet Care days are a great way for kids to have fun while learning how to care for pets. Kids will participate in a variety of educational and fun activities. A great idea if you have a pet in your home, or are thinking about becoming pet owners. Download a booking form or call the centre on 0300 777 1570 for more information.
Work experience placements
Starting college next month and need to find a work placement? Blue Cross can help! We offer work placements for students aged 16 years + for a minimum of 2 weeks. Help needy and homeless animals and learn about supporting an animal welfare charity.
Short-term volunteer foster caring
Become a volunteer short term foster carer for pets at Blue Cross and help improve the welfare of the animals in our care. As a volunteer foster carer you will look after needy animals in your own home while they are recuperating from operations, or illnesses, or young kittens or puppies until they are able to find a permanent new home. If you live within 45 minutes of the centre and are interested in this rewarding volunteer role, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
