OUR BIRMINGHAM CENTRE HAS MOVED
With the realisation that our rehoming Centre in Digbeth couldn't be significantly improved we constructed a brand new, purpose built Dog Rescue and Welfare Centre.
We've now moved into our exciting new Centre at Catherine-de-Barnes, near Solihull – and look forward to welcoming you all.
This state-of-the-art building replaced the Centre in Digbeth, which is now completely closed.
Below are artists impressions of what the Centre was to look like, along with pictures of what the Centre now looks like on completion.
You can view all of our pictures here in our photo gallery.

Animal welfare and the care of dogs are subjects Birmingham Dogs' Home consider vital and as such we have in place an educational programme focusing on promoting this topic within the community to young and old alike.
The Fundraising Department organises a schedule of talks to schools, colleges, youth groups, organisations, churches and businesses to inform and assist those in the community in the work done at our centres in addition to spearheading the call for first-rate animal welfare.
The department also arrange for on-site visits to both centres to enable those groups see first-hand the journey strays take from their delivery by Dog Wardens to their happy farewells with new owners.
This educational programme is geared to help enlighten and inform even the smallest child on subjects such as how to approach a dog and where not to stroke it all to ensure their safety around dogs and animals in general.
Can we play with the dogs?
As the dogs in our care are stray animals, they may be nervous around large groups of people and we cannot guarantee how they will react. Due to this and health and safety restrictions, unfortunately, no physical contact with the dogs in our centres is possible.
However, within a classroom situation we offer to bring one of our past residents - now a family pet - to give pupils and students closer contact and understanding of animal behaviour.
How much does it cost?
There is no charge for us to present a talk, however all we ask if for your group to make a small contribution to help our homeless dogs. This can consist of a monetry donation, or if you would prefer, you can donate cans of dog food, blankets, toys, treats, etc.
As we are a working kennels, there are certain health and safety conditions that must be adhered to when visiting the homes. To discuss your requirements, or if you simply wish further information, please feel free to call our fundraising team on 0121 643 5018 (option 3) or email us using our contact page.
