Dogs For Adoption Button 2a Cats For Adoption Button 2a Rabbits For Adoption Button 2a Other Animals For Adoption Button 2a

Welcome to Pawz For Thought

Pawz for Thought is a small but very active animal charity operating throughout the North East of England. It was formed as a positive response to the distressingly high number of animal welfare issues in the region.

The Charity always has many cats for adoption. There are fewer dogs for adoption as we spend many weeks with each animal getting to know them to ensure their next home is a ‘forever home’

Rabbits available for adoption are always plentiful either as singles or in pairs. Help can be given bonding a new rabbit with your existing bunnies.

Not being a traditional cat and dog shelter with large capacities we are limited in the number of rescue cats, dogs and rabbits that can be taken in. We also work in the rescue and rehoming of smaller animals.

Our work is mainly in Newcastle, Sunderland and the North East Counties of Northumberland, Durham and Tyne and Wear, however, distance is never a barrier if the home is right.
