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

We are responsible for taking and caring for 100% of the stray dogs over West Somerset, locating from three council areas; Taunton Deane, South Somerset & 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 the dog has rolled over to be rehomed we will then ensure that all dogs have had a completed vaccination course, are neutered and in regulation with the microchip law (that came into effect in April 2016).

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

As well as the animals we have for rehoming coming 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!
