Teckels Animal Sanctuaries was formed in November 2003 as a merger between two long established animal rescue charities.


Teckels Animal Sanctuaries charity presently runs a sanctuary and boarding kennels (whose profits go straight back into the charity) in Whitminster, Gloucestershire.


The rescue and boarding animals are all cared for by our dedicated and hard-working staff and volunteers who regularly clean out, feed, exercise and socialise with those in their care. The centre costs a lot to run (vet bills alone average £3,000 per month), which is why we need your help by sponsorship, donation, membership, or by using our dog and cat boarding facilities.


The famous animal lover and author Jilly Cooper had been the patron of Swindon Animal Sanctuary Appeal since 1991, and following the merger has continued her patronage with Teckels Animal Sanctuaries.


Agility Classes


We run weekly agility classes at Teckels using our fantastic agility equipment. The classes are aimed at absolute beginners with the emphasis on the enjoyment of the dog. Dogs and owners are trained in structured classes to use a variety of equipment including jumps, table, tunnel, closed tunnel, weave poles, long jump, A-frame, tyre and dog-walk. Classes are held in our large outdoor paddock and cost just £5 per session, which helps raise money for the charity. Sessions are held each Monday at 6pm to 7pm, weather permitting. Contact Teckels for more information.


Teckels Boarding Kennels & Cats Whiskers Cattery


Give your dog or cat a luxury stay at Teckels Boarding Kennels while you are away enjoying yourself! Have the peace of mind that your pet will be well looked after, fed and exercised while you get on with your holiday.


All profits from Teckels Boarding Kennels in Whitminster, Gloucestershire go straight to our rehoming charity. So you can have your dog or cat well looked after and be helping other less fortunate animals at the same time.
