Oxfordshire: Lewknor rehoming centre

Welcome to Lewknor rehoming centre based in south Oxfordshire. We always have dogs and cats looking for loving new homes.


We opened in 2005 after moving from our Chalfont St Peter cattery site and have facilities for 24 dogs and 40 cats.

Our Rehoming Team is dedicated to finding the right pet for you. If you are interested in a pet on our website please complete a rehoming form in the first instance, you can find this on the pet’s profile page. So we can understand the type of pet you are looking for please do call us first if you would like to arrange a visit.

To see which pets are available on our website please scroll down to choose a species or visit our ‘rehome a pet’ page. You can see pets available at all our locations or narrow your search more locally.  Our pages are updated regularly so please keep visiting them.

Refurbishment works

From 2 August there will be some changes to the Lewknor centre due to construction work to improve the animal facilities of the centre. There will be a temporary reception at the left of the current reception that will be clearly sign posted and marked out. Please park in the assigned public parking area on the right-hand side of the car park as you drive into the centre. Please be careful when moving around the site and follow the marked out areas. Thank you for your support and understanding.

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]
