The Kennels are open by appointment only

The BARK kennels have had to make adjustments, in line with government guidance.

BARK is now cautiously starting rehoming and inviting potential owners to the kennels to view specific animals. We want to reassure you we will continue to follow Government guidelines to keep our animals you and and our staff safe.


All potential owners will need to complete an application form from our website. These can be currently be found on the individual animal pages. If there is no link to an application form the animal is not currently looking for a home.

You will be asked to confirm before coming to the kennels and on arrival at the kennels that you do not have any symptoms of Covid, you do not believe you have been in contact with anyone who may have had or has symptoms.

We will offer a strict appointment basis. We will only allow two people from the same household at kennels, sorry no children. Time will need to be limited to 10 minutes in all areas except dogs.

We will have hand cleanser for you to use on arrival and departure from the kennels.

We ask that all visitors bring their own mask and wear it at all times when on premises.

BARK Fund Raise

We are still not accepting any donations of food or other animal stuff from 'houses' at our kennels. All items would have to be quarantined and we sadly just don't have the space. Our shop is taking donation of items to sell in our shop. We would ask that you go to the back of our shop (via the Maltings Car Park) All items will be quarantined for a minimum 72 hours.

These guidelines are subject to change without notice.

More details on current guidelines or what to do if you have any concerns can be found at

Please before looking for, and hopefully finding a pet from our care, read and think about Things to consider before adoption.

Shop Opening Times

Our shop is currently open Tuesday to Saturday between 9:30 and 12:30.  We are able to accept donations of items to sell at our shop between 10 and 12 via the rear of the shop, accessed by the Maltings Car Park
