Helping thousands of lost
unwanted, neglected, abused
and abandoned animals every year.

Our objective is the promotion of kindness and prevention of cruelty to animals.

We reunite lost animals with their owners and find loving new homes for those no longer wanted.


We do not currently have a Facebook page, however you can stay up to date with us on Twitter @Dog_Cat_NCLE and Instagram @newcastledogandcatshelter


Please note: our rehoming centre at Benton North Farm is closed on the last Wednesday of every month for staff training.
