Hampshire: Southampton rehoming centre

Welcome to Southampton rehoming centre based in Hampshire. We always have dogs and cats looking for loving new homes. Come and visit us, we'd love to see you.


We opened in 1988 after the site was very kindly bequeathed to us. The centre has facilities for dogs and cats, plus puppy and kitten facilities.

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

We also have a pet care clinic for people who can’t afford private veterinary fees in the SO17, SO18, SO19 and SO30 postcode areas. Please call the centre for more information.

Home Direct Scheme

Our Home Direct Scheme is for dogs, cats, rabbits and other small pets whose owners can sadly no longer keep them but don’t need to find them a new home straight away. Pets stay in their existing home until a new owner is found for them. All pets go through our careful assessment and matching process.

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 illness, 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 [email protected]
