Dogs Trust Basildon, the charity’s 19th rehoming centre has been newly built in Wickford near Basildon and has been a labour of love for the charity. We had been looking for a suitable site in Basildon for over 10 years and are so pleased to have finally found it. Building work began in February 2013 and was completed in May 2014. The rehoming centre has 69 glass fronted kennels and care's for up to 120 dogs at any one time. This equates to around 1000 dogs each year. Our facilities include a training barn, veterinary and surgical suite and a dedicated training and rehabilitation centre to enrich the lives of the dogs in our care.


“About 4yrs ago having said a sad farewell to our loyal & Trusted best friend Labrador Alfie. My friend joined me in my search of finding a new best friend at Wickford Dog Trust. The staff were very hands on & extremely helpful & knowledgeable. It turned out Marjorie the beautiful Border Collie whom we have renamed since to Marjie, clicked immediately. Hence we adopted this beautiful little lady, it wasn't easy given her sad history. But with lots of patience, love, understanding, & above all total commitment, she is the happiest, most well adjusted dog, who is loved by all the family, friends, neighbours & any one who has the pleasure to meet her. So if anyone has the commitment, time, patience, & love of giving one of these so well deserving dogs a home. Go & visit sometime soon & speak with the staff who are only too pleased to help. "Remember a dog is for life" & forever your friend" ”
