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.

If you are looking for a pet please read about the rehoming process and have a look at our pets looking for new homes.

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
