Welcome to the Association of Dogs & Cats Homes


ADCH members across the British Isles are all working continuously, to ensure that animals in their care remain properly and appropriately cared for during this difficult period. It is extremely likely that many rescue organisations across the country including those servicing our local communities, will struggle with managing the increasingly large numbers of demands being placed upon them. They could probably do with your help right now!


How you can help during this unprecedented national crisis

Donate now to the ADCH Coronavirus Emergency Appeal.

Support your local rescue with either your time, donations of food, blankets, dog and cat treats and toys or other things

Please be aware that in line with government advice most if not all rescues, will be closed to visitors to ensure the ongoing health and well-being of their staff and volunteers. In order to make sure that your offer of support or help is properly received, please telephone or email first and be understanding should I reply take a little while to come back,  as everyone is really stretched and may not be checking emails or phone systems as often as they might normally. 

All rescues at this present moment are working day and night to ensure plans are in place to care for their animals whilst dealing with the severe restrictions placed on them by travel and the self-isolation requirements.
