Yorkshire: Thirsk rehoming centre
We opened in 1987 and the centre was rebuilt in 2009. The centre has facilities for 25 dogs and 40 cats, with additional puppy and kitten facilities.
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 call us first if you would like to arrange a visit.
To see which pets are available on our website, visit our rehome a pet webpage. You can see pets available at all our locations or narrow your search more locally. Our pages are updated regularly so please keep visiting.
Can I visit the centre without an appointment?
Yes. You can visit between 2.00pm and 4.00pm. We are closed to visitors without a pre-booked appointment on Wednesdays.
What can I drop in for?
Our team are here to help. So, whether it’s about volunteering, donating, pet advice or information on how to adopt a pet, we’ll talk you through.
Can I rehome a pet when I drop in?
You’ll need to apply to adopt a pet on our website. This is to make sure the application process is as fair as possible to everyone. If we think you’ll be a good match for one of our pets, we’ll contact you to start the process.
Can I meet a pet when I drop in?
Most of our dogs, cats and small pets are looked after by our fantastic team of foster carers. This ensures they get the best care. If we do have pets in our centres, we try to limit the number of people who can see them to those who have a pre-booked appointment, as lots of visitors can be stressful.
