Northiam rehoming centre

Welcome to Northiam rehoming centre. We have cats and dogs looking for loving homes. We can accommodate up to 11 dogs and 34 cats.

We opened in the late 1960s and the site was converted from old farmhouses. We’re currently looking for a more suitable location in the South East where we can deliver our services more effectively. With the search focussing on Sussex and Kent.

Homeless and abandoned horses and ponies in the South East are taken in by our two horse rehoming centres in Burford, Oxfordshire and Rolleston-on-Dove, Staffordshire.

Our small animal centre will continue to stay open until further notice. We’d love for you to come and visit. If you pop in, please arrive 30 minutes before we close (see opening hours below).

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