Centre Manager:

The on-site team is led by the Centre Manager, Sarah Johnson who is responsible for the day to day operation of cat and dog rescue, rehoming and the boarding business. Sarah also works closely with the Board on strategic planning and new developments.

Sarah is supported by a small team of Kennel and Cattery Assistants who are led by two Senior Assistants, as well as Reception, finance and Volunteer/Events staff.

We provide a range of training for staff, including modules in animal welfare, behaviour and rehabilitation to support the rehoming work. It is important to us to have a staff team who are skilled and committed to providing the highest possible standards of care, both to our rescue and our boarding residents.

Our patron:

We have been thrilled to receive support from Tamsin Grainger – Miss Gloucester as our Patron for 2019-20, until she steps down in March 2020. Tamsin is a long standing and active supporter of the charity and an avid animal lover. She is a brilliant ambassador for our work and a great role model for young people across Gloucestershire.
