Animals in Distress (Torbay & Westcountry) Animals in Distress is an animal welfare charity that takes in, cares for and rehomes over 600 cats, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs every year. Animals come to the rescue centre for a variety of reasons, including bereavement, illness, breakdown of relationships, financial hardship, straying, cruelty, neglect or abandonment.
When the lives of South Devon’s pets fall apart, Animals in Distress is here to pick up the pieces. We aim to never turn away an animal in distress, and it is our policy to give them the best possible care while they are waiting to be rehomed.
Every effort is made to ensure that prospective owners find the right pet for them. Home checks are carried out, and all animals are checked by our veterinary surgeon. All cats and dogs are microchipped, vaccinated and neutered before rehoming.
Without the help of our generous supporters in the local community and beyond, we simply wouldn’t be able to provide this vital service. Thank you so much for your support.
