Community Organisations

Teckels is a small, independent charity founded in 2003, in Whitminster Gloucester. They rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome cats and dogs regardless of any medical and behavioural needs. Their vision is a world where all animals are well cared for, respected and their needs understood. They aim to reduce the number of unwanted cats and dogs by educating the public on the responsibilities of animal ownership and promoting spaying and neutering.

Many of the animals that come into care have had a difficult past, during which they may have been neglected, unloved or abandoned. Others have previously had owners who are sadly no longer in a position to look after them due to financial or personal constraints, or their owners have passed away.

Teckels never puts a healthy dog or cat down, their non-destruction policy means that they will never euthanise an animal other than for overriding health reasons. They believe that all animals deserve the chance of a happy life, even if that means staying for a longer period to work on behavioural or health issues. Teckels pride themselves on working hard to always find that extra special home.
