Leicester Animal Rescue
Leicester Animal Rescue aims to give animals a long-term permanent home that they can feel loved
and secure in. They care for dogs and cats until they find their forever home, rehoming about 100
dogs and 200 cats every year. The animals are of the upmost priority to the rescue centre; providing
them with everything they need while they’re residing at the shelter and vetting new owners
thoroughly to ensure the best fit for both parties for a long and happy life together.
Their charity shop situated on the corner of Evington Road / St. Stephens Road, aims to raise as

Generous donations also ensure the continued running of the shelter, providing the best care to
animals in residence.
