The Newcastle Dog & Cat Shelter reunites lost animals (cats, dogs and small animals) with their owners and finds new homes for animals that are no longer wanted. They cover the whole of the North East from two shelters within Newcastle, Claremont Road and Benton North Farm. Benton North Farm is run as a rehoming centre and Claremont Road shelter takes arrivals of lost animals that can be reclaimed by their owners. They also give medical treatment or behavioural correction until animals are ready for rehoming. The arrivals centre is closed for public viewing.
They also run an adoption service and will advise you on which pets will suit your family lifestyle.
If you are struggling to look after your animal they will offer advice and support.
Benton North Farm shelter is also home to resident horses, ponies, donkeys, pigs, sheep, goat and ex-battery chickens. They can arrange visits and tours at the shelter or visit your location.
