St Giles Animal Rescue

Caring for abandoned, abused and displaced pets in Somerset

At St Giles Animal Rescue we look after and care for abused, abandoned and displaced pets. We take in dogs, cats, small animals and even the odd sheep!

All our rescues are ready for adoption; after they have been treated, trained and prepared for a better life. You can find a list of pets, ready for their forever home, on our Pets for Adoption page. We are always looking for for volunteers and fosterers so please, if you’d like to help in other ways here’s how.

As a charity we rely on your support and that of our sponsors to help cover the costs of veterinary, boarding and food bills.  We run regular online campaigns to help raise funds during the COVID crisis and beyond.

If you could buy a ‘dog a dinner’, ‘knit a blanket’ for the cattery or’ bake buns to raise funds’ we appreciate every single penny you raise on behalf of our rescues. Getting involved couldn’t be easier and here’s where you start.

Our amazing rehomed rescues

We have been blessed with so many amazing animals who have found a better life with families that truly love them. Although we can’t feature all our rescues here are just a few that have found their ‘happily ever afters’.

If you have a photo of your rescue you would like to feature in this gallery, please send your photos with a caption to Mel O’Sullivan who would be delighted to include your snaps on our website.
