Hertfordshire: Kimpton rehoming centre

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


We opened in the 1940s. We have facilities to care for 30 dogs, 15 cats, six rabbits, plus kitten and puppy facilities.

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

Home Direct Scheme

Our Home Direct Scheme is for dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs 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 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 [email protected]

Buy our pets a treat or purchase something to help our centre be the best it can be.

Friends Days

We hold Friends Days throughout the year at our rehoming centres and hospitals to thank our supporters and give them a unique, behind-the-scenes look at our work.  They’re a great chance to see first-hand how we’re helping pets. If you would like to find out more about our Friends Day at Hertfordshire on 26 July, please contact our Legacy Team for details.
