Tiverton rehoming centre

Welcome to Tiverton rehoming centre. We have cats and dogs looking for loving homes.

We have a pet care clinic for people who can’t afford private vets’ fees in the EX5, EX15, EX16 and EX17 postcode areas. Please give us a ring for more information.

We opened in 1985 and we have a kennel block for 32 dogs, 16 cat units and an isolation unit for both dogs and cats. In 1999 a further isolation block was built with 14 cat units for nursing mums and kittens and new arrivals, as well as a puppy/dog isolation unit with three kennels.

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