Shelter Redevelopment Project

Redevelopment FundraisingIn 2011 we are hoping to raise £100,000 to fund a crucial Shelter redevelopment project so we can cope with the increasing number of animals coming into our care. We have created a new Just Giving page to enable you to donate / raise funds towards this project (different to our normal donations link). We are also registered with The Big Give if you prefer to donate there.

You can read about the Shelter redevelopment here. Thank you for your continued support - we couldn't do it without you!


Dog and Cat Boarding

Dog and Cat Boarding

Our dog boarding and cat boarding facilities in Cheltenham provide warm and cosy accommodation for your pet while you are away. Whether it is for the odd day or a long summer holiday, we will care for your pet to the highest standard, giving you peace of mind while you enjoy your holiday.  

We also offer a day creche for dogs requiring care while you are at work.

Leave us a Legacy

Leave a LegacyCan you help us to help the animals today and in the future? As a charity we make no profit and at present receive no Government support, so we rely on the generosity of the public in order to continue the work we do.

Last year gifts received from supporters in their wills accounted for approximately one third of our annual income.

About us

Cheltenham Animal Shelter is a charity that has been helping animals since the 1930s. We provide kennelling for stray dogs from three councils: Gloucester City, Tewkesbury Borough and Cheltenham Borough.

We take in rescue dogs from Gloucestershire Constabulary as well as rehoming dogs, cats and small animals from owners who can no longer look after them for a variety of reasons. Small animals we often have in our care include rabbits, gerbils and guinea pigs.

The mission of Gloucestershire Animal Welfare Association and Cheltenham Animal Shelter is:

to provide shelter for homeless domestic animals from across the county whilst attempting to locate appropriate new homes. We also aim to educate members of the public and professionals in correct and appropriate animal husbandry through humane education programmes.

We are a member of the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes and we adhere to, and exceed, their code of practice. In doing that we are very careful to ensure that each and every animal goes to the right home.

Our thanks to Burns Pet Nutrition who very kindly provide some of the pet food for the dogs and cats for adoption free of charge.
