St Giles Animal Rescue are responsible for caring and rehoming stray and unwanted dogs, cats and small animals within the county of Somerset. The Charity have responsibility for taking in all strays across two councils, Somerset West & Taunton and South Somerset. These dogs are brought to the rescue centre by the dog warden and if not claimed by an owner within the legal statutory time we are then able to re-home them.
We also support the RSPCA South East and South West Branch by boarding dogs and cats on their behalf and whilst in our care we help to find them their happy ever afters.
We take dogs out of the puppy farm trade, many of which have had little human contact, having spent most of their days in a cage or kennel. They come into the centre scared and confused and we are dedicated to changing their lives forever.
what we do
At St Giles Animal Rescue our policy is to ensure that the welfare needs of every single animal, whatever the cost, are met until such time as they are ready to find their ‘forever home’.
On arrival at the centre every animal is checked by the veterinary team, they are micro chipped, vaccinated, neutered, wormed, flea treated and receive any additional treatments or surgery they need. We provide safety, a warm bed and a full tummy, rehabilitation, and a lifetime of support for every adoptee, but most importantly we provide love and we would not be able to do any of this without the amazing support of people like you.
THE DIFFERENCE you could make
Many of the animals arrive at the centre having suffered from neglect, abandonment and abuse. They come to St Giles Animal Rescue with a long road to recovery ahead of them and we provide the love, medical care and behavioural training they need to prepare them for their new life. We are a small charity doing a massive job, largely supported by volunteers but all with the same objective, to give every pet rescue the ‘happily ever after’ each one so deserves. PLAYING THE LOTTERY and choosing St Giles Animal Rescue YOU WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE by helping us to support as many pets as we possibly can.
