Oak Tree Farm

Polite Notice

During your visit to Oak Tree Farm, please remember that this is an active rehoming centre and there may be nervous animals around. Please give animals plenty of space, keep calm and quiet around them and ensure dogs are supervised on a lead. On some days there are limited appointments and no access to the lower site to allow for veterinary care and training.

Please don't be disappointed when you visit and you cannot see our dogs and cats...

Studies have shown that visitors walking around kennels and catteries can cause distress for dogs and cats, affecting their mental and physical health. With the animals' welfare in mind, we restrict access to staff and volunteers only. This will mean that animals are less stressed and have improved and quicker rehoming prospects. You will likely see our dogs walking around the site and playing in our runs and training areas.

If you are looking to rehome an animal, please first visit the rehoming page where you will be able to see all of the different animals looking for homes. If you see an animal which interests you, please call 01228 560082 or email info@oaktreeanimals.org.uk to make an appointment for rehoming. If you arrive without an appointment we cannot guarantee staff availability and it is likely you will have to book an appointment at another time.

Also, for owners wishing to bring an animal to the centre, please see our pages about giving up an animal. It is essential that the owner contacts us first and does not bring any animal onto the site without prior arrangement.
