Welcome to Cheltenham Animal Shelter

Join our WEEKLY LOTTERY and help the animals in our care.PLAY NOW

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we are currently closed to the public and unable to rehome or foster animals as these processes involve face-to-face meetings, animal meet and greets and home checks (which we can’t do at the moment).

If you would like to express an interest in offering a loving forever home to one of our small animals, please email smallanimals@gawa.org.uk and we will respond when things are back to normal.

We regret that we are unable to take rehoming applications by phone and due to the volume of email enquiries we receive, we can’t always reply to everyone. But please don’t let that deter you from applying again in the future!

Rest assured that the animals in our care are receiving lots of extra love and attention from the team at this time.

Further relevant information can be found here.

We have a selection of small animals available for adoption including bunnies, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, rats and sometimes birds. We require a non refundable donation of £45 for the adoption of rabbits and £15 for guinea pigs. For more information please see our Adoption Policy page or email smallanimals@gawa.org.uk.
