Our Mission




"To Rehabilitate and Rehome Stray and


Unwanted Animals In The North East".


We are a registered charity (1155714) based in the North-East

of England run completely by dedicated volunteers.



Welcome to the website for Helping Pets (North East), please use the navigation pane on the left hand side to find your way around the website.  

You can find further information about all the animals that we currently have available for adoption, along with updates on animals that have been previously adopted on our Facebook page.


We also have many of our cats that are seeking a new home on the  Cat chat page.  

 If you are interested in adopting through us please complete our adoption questionnaire.

If you would like to ask a question please email us directly at: mail@helpingpets.org.uk

 Alternatively you can  contact us via our contact page



We take in 'at risk' pets, many of whom are being given away 'free to a good home', or animals that the owners request us to take in as they feel they can no longer care for them.

 We may also take in a stray animal and try to locate its owner before putting it up for adoption.

As an organisation committed to animal welfare, at Helping Pets (North East) we do what we can to help control the local feral cat population. For more information on this please visit our "Feral Cats" Page.

We do not have kennels and any pet taken by us will be placed into a foster home where it can be assessed and we can get an idea of its personality and the type of home it would be best suited too.

All animals will leave us:

  • Neutered.
  • Assessed for compatibility in a variety of homes.
  • Dogs will have been vaccinated.
  • All animals will be flea treated where appropriate.
  • All animals will be wormed where appropriate.
  • Microchipped.

We are not a breed specific organisation and take in all types of cats, dogs and other domestic pets, providing it is safe for us to do so.

We do support breed specific charities and have links with a number of local ones that we sometimes refer too, this is because sometimes they are in a better position to help find a home for that particular breed.

We will offer help, advice and support whenever possible with the aim of preventing a pet being rehomed.
