Cheltenham Animal Shelter has been helping animals since 1926.

We provide kennelling for stray dogs from four councils: Gloucester City, Tewkesbury Borough, Cheltenham Borough and Cotswold District.

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 education programmes.
