Temporary boarding postponement

At Birmingham Dogs Home it is our charity’s mission to take in and care for all the abandoned and relinquished dogs from across the Midlands that find themselves without a home, through no fault of their own.

Here at Birmingham Dogs Home, like many other centres nationwide, our kennels are full and more stray dogs continue to be brought to us every day.  We have also experienced a drop in adoption enquiries over recent months as people face the challenges of difficult economic times ahead.

We have therefore taken the decision to suspend our boarding services for a temporary period, prioritising the use of all our kennels to accommodate the extraordinary number of stray dogs we are currently receiving, in need of shelter and care. 

We really value the support of everyone who boards your lovely dogs with us, we love looking after them and the fees you pay help us to meet our daily running costs as a charity.  We appreciate this may cause some inconvenience for you – please accept our apologies for this.  However, we trust you will understand why we have made this move at this time.  

Our charity has been serving the Midlands community for 130 years, through times of hardship and change and we remain committed to our mission to rescue and care for every local homeless dog that needs us, whatever challenges may lie ahead.

As always, thank you for your continued support.


Birmingham Dogs Home offers dog boarding services at our Birmingham and Wolverhampton centres. Enjoy your time away, stress-free in the knowledge that your best friend is receiving 5-star treatment from our experienced, trained, dog loving team. Kennels have under-floor heating* and outside runs.

We have lots of outside space for your dog to exercise in our paddocks and every dog has two walks a day around our site. If you have more than one dog they can keep each other company and share a kennel. If your dog enjoys the company of others they can play and socialise with new friends. By booking with Birmingham Dogs Home you are helping to support our charity to continue to help homeless dogs. If you would like to have a look at our boarding facilities before making a booking please get in touch and we will be happy to arrange a time to show you around.
