When you adopt a dog or a cat from St Giles, not only are you giving a loving animal a second chance, you are also creating space for another animal to be rescued, plus the cost of your adoption goes directly towards helping another animal in need.

We take in many different breeds and ages of dogs and cats from puppies and kittens, puppy farm survivors, bereaved pets, older dogs and cats and we are constantly accepting new arrivals.

If you are considering adopting a specific dog or a cat we now ask that you complete and send in an application form and if you are a suitable match, we will contact you to arrange a meet and greet. We will also add your details to our database and when a dog or cat comes in that matches your requirements we will contact you.

One of our main aims is to ensure that all the animals in our care have the most comfortable stay possible until they are able to find their forever homes, therefore we do not allow visitors to walk around the rescue centre to view the dogs, as we have found that this is very stressful and usually gives you an unfair reflection of their true personalities. For this reason we have an appointment only policy.

Please remember that all adoptions are subject to suitable introductions and home visits.
