Staffordshire: Rolleston rehoming centre

Welcome to Rolleston rehoming centre based in Staffordshire. We always have horses and cats looking for loving new homes.


Rolleston horse rehoming centre is temporarily closed however we are still able to rehome cats from the site and are available for advice and enquiries about horses looking for homes. If you want to get in touch with us about horses please contact the centre on 0300 777 1520, for information about the cats looking for homes please call 0300 777 1942. Please call us to make an appointment to see a cat before visiting the centre.

A Blue Cross pony at our Oxfordshire site has been diagnosed with ‘Strangles’ ( Streptococcus Equi).  Because we sometimes move horse and ponies between the two sites and as this is a highly infectious disease, as a precaution we have decided to restrict access to the horses on site at Rolleston to prevent potential spread of this bacteria.

When helping horses and ponies from so many varied backgrounds, this is something that can happen from time to time, so we are prepared and have protocols in place to manage it.

So, for the time being we are not able to allow visitors into the horse yard or the second hand tack shop. We will continue to rehome cats at Rolleston and offer advice and talk about the horses looking for homes.

Please check the website to see when we are back to normal again.


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 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.

Cats at Rolleston 

We also have Rolleston rehoming service, which is just 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 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].
