Staffordshire: Rolleston rehoming centre

Location Details

We opened in 2006 and can care for up to 55 horses in our paddocks and stables.

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 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.


We also have Rolleston rehoming service, which looks after and rehomes cats based at Rolleston rehoming centre. The cats are cared for by our volunteers, at our rehoming centre as part of the Blue Cross National Rehoming Network. A team of volunteers coordinates the scheme and provide daily animal care. This service at Rolleston also has fosterers which enable us to take in and rehome small pets. This scheme is helping us to rehome even more pets every year.

Home Direct Scheme

Our Home Direct Scheme is for horses 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 horses or cats in your own home while they are recuperating from operations or illnesses 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]
