Bath Cats and Dogs Home was formed in 1937 from an amalgamation of local rescue groups, and we are one of the busiest RSPCA Branches in the country, rehoming over 1,100 dogs, cats and small animals each year. 

We service throughout Bath, Somerset and Wiltshire and accept all dogs, cats and small animals in need - lost, abused, sick, injured and unwanted animals are brought in to us by the public, dog wardens and RSPCA inspectors.


We have three charity shops.

Frome Charity Shop. Near the beautiful St Catherine's Hill area, we stock good quality donated items as well as new pet products. Dogs are welcome.

Opening times: 9am - 5pm Monday to Saturday. Also open alongside The Frome Independent market.
