Representing the South West in lovely Devon, Dogs Trust Ilfracombe is a 45-kennel centre with a lot of lovely dogs seeking loving homes! If you have any queries about rehoming, or a particular dog, call 01271 812 709. You can see some of the Ilfracombe residents online at

We hope you like what you see. Remember that dogs come and go quite quickly, so if the dog that fits your family isn’t there now they might be tomorrow!

Making a difference to the lives of pets
At Pets at Home we are passionate about pets. We believe that every pet deserves a loving home and a healthy, happy life. It is this belief that led us to launch our own
charity, Support Adoption For Pets.

Last year, with your help, we raised over £1.25 million. This money has been used to provide financial support to a large number of animal welfare charities and local re-homing organisations throughout the UK, who dedicate themselves to finding new caring homes for pets. This year we aim to raise even more. We know it’s an ambitious target but we’re confident that with the support of generous hearted pet lovers like you, we’ll achieve our goal.

Every donation helps animals in need

It’s a sad fact that thousands of pets end up homeless in the UK every year, through no fault of their own. The many rescue centres we support do a tremendous job of finding new homes for these deserving pets.

Dogs Trust is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK. Our mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life. Each year we care for around 16,000 dogs at our nationwide network of 17 rehoming centres, and no healthy dog is ever destroyed.


In partnership with Support Adoption For Pets we are setting up “Advice and Adoption” areas in several Pets at Home stores across the country, all within one hour’s drive from the local Dogs Trust rehoming centre.

We are concerned that people are not aware of the risks in buying a dog from a pet shop, through classified advertisements or an irresponsible breeder. By having a regular presence in a large responsible retailer we will be able to meet thousands of potential new owners and talk to them about responsible dog ownership and what to look for when buying a dog.

Dogs Trust will have dedicated team members in each of these Advice and Adoption areas at all times who will showcase a selection of the fantastic dogs available for rehoming, feed and walk the dogs as well as greeting the public and answering any questions that potential owners will have on dog adoption.

It will not be possible to rehome a dog directly from this store and perspective owners will still need to come and visit us at our rehoming centre, maintaining the integrity of the dog’s welfare and following our high standard rehoming experience including home checks and questionnaires.
