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.

Charity Night

Saturday 20th October, 7pm-11pm

Fancy a boogie? We’re holding an exciting charity night and if our last one is anything to go by, we’re all in for a good night. We will have a disco, DJ, live entertainment and a raffle. All proceeds from the night are used to take care of our animals, funds which are very much needed as our vet bills are set to exceed £100,000 this year due to the increased number of animals coming into us needing veterinary care.

Tickets £5pp! Over 18s only!

Call 0191 215 0435 or email to reserve your tickets!

Forest Hall Workmen Social Club, Errington Terrace, Palmersville, NE12 9DQ.
