About St Giles Animal Rescue

Our amazing charity helps abandoned, displaced and abused pets.

St Giles Animal Rescue (previously called Dogs 4 Adoption) is a registered charity (1136251) based at St Giles Animal Centre in Wrantage, Taunton. The centre is owned by the Linnell family.

What we do is life changing

St Giles Animal Rescue is responsible for taking and caring for 100% of the stray dogs over West Somerset, covering two council areas; Somerset West & Taunton and West Somerset.

These dogs are brought to us by the dog warden and, if not reclaimed by their owners within the legal statutory time, we then re-home them on behalf of the councils. 

Once a dog has been fully processed he/she is then ready to be rehomed. We ensure that all dogs have had a complete course of vaccinations, are neutered and are microchipped, in regulation with the microchip law (that came into effect in April 2016).

We also board dogs and cats on behalf of the RSPCA South East and South West branch and, whilst in our care, we help find them their forever homes.

As well as the animals we take through these routes, we also care for many other rescue cats and dogs that come to us direct from families that are no longer able to care for them.

On some occasions we also find ourselves helping other animals in need such as rabbits and guinea pigs, and we have even rescued sheep and chickens!

It’s important to distinguish between St Giles Animal Rescue and St Giles Animal Centre:
