OUR BIRMINGHAM CENTRE HAS MOVED
With the realisation that our rehoming Centre in Digbeth couldn't be significantly improved we constructed a brand new, purpose built Dog Rescue and Welfare Centre.
We've now moved into our exciting new Centre at Catherine-de-Barnes, near Solihull – and look forward to welcoming you all.
This state-of-the-art building replaced the Centre in Digbeth, which is now completely closed.
Below are artists impressions of what the Centre was to look like, along with pictures of what the Centre now looks like on completion.
You can view all of our pictures here in our photo gallery.

Getting to the heart of the issues impacting on the abandonment and relinquishment of dogs is fundamental to our mission at Birmingham Dogs Home. The reasons why dogs end up in need of our care are multiple and complex, reflecting the issues of today’s society and specifically our communities here in the Midlands.
Therefore, it is vital that we work closely within our local communities to help to educate potential future dog owners and the next generation of owners on the responsibilities of dog ownership.
We are achieving this through our community education outreach programme. Birmingham Dogs Home provides free talks to community groups for all ages, schools, colleges and businesses to provide education around the issues of animal welfare and the needs of dogs as pets. This is a very important aspect of our work.
Themes we address when working in the community include:
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more and make arrangements for a talk.
