All the staff at Dogs Trust Canterbury would like to welcome you to our rehoming centre. In the 10 years this centre has been open, we have made lots of kind and generous friends and supporters who we need to say a massive thank you to. To anyone who we have yet to meet, we would like to invite you to visit us and see for yourselves the work that we do.
Did you know our Supporter Relations Officer (SRO), Lara Murphy, can offer free talks to community groups and organise tours of the rehoming centre? She also deals with all the local enquiries about donations in memory of a loved one, as well as answering any questions about our free Canine Care Card Scheme or legacies. She also organises the annual Fun Day and helps with the social media coverage for the rehoming centre too!
Dogs Trust has been in Kent since 1999 when we took over the site in the small village of Chestfield outside Canterbury. We refurbished the site in 2000 and opened to the public with 24 kennels allowing the centre to care for up to 40 dogs at any one time. In 2009, we expanded the centre and now have 38 kennels and can care for up to 70 dogs and puppies on site.
