About the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes

The ADCH promotes best practice in animal welfare for dogs and cats. Our members are dedicated to dog rescue & cat rescue.

Membership incorporates registered charities and not for profit organisations of all sizes. Our priority is to ensure that rescue dogs and cats get the best possible chance of new loving and caring homes.

The Minimum Welfare & Operational Standards booklet has been compiled and is promoted by the ADCH. It aims to raise standards amongst animal rescue organisations that care for dogs and cats with the overall aim of enhancing their public respect.
