Appointments are not necessary but if you are travelling a long distance it would be advisable to contact our office to let us know if you are interested in a particular dog which can be reserved for you to meet. Please call us the day before you intend to visit.


Heathway at the approach to the centre from the village of Colton is narrow but please don't be put off by the "No Motor Vehicles" & "Access Only" signs it is safe to carry on.

SATNAV users - if you approach from the direction of Abbots Bromley you may well be sent towards a very narrow and unsuitable lane. Please ignore SatNav after you leave Abbots Bromley and drive into the village of Colton. Your SatNav route will then be suitable.


 If your emergency concerns the health of a dog you have adopted, please do let us know but contact your vet first or you may consider using the Vetfone service or VetHelp Direct

Voice Messages on our office number will be dealt with as soon as possible, Monday to Friday. Alternatively you can email us of course - which is regularly monitored
