Mission Statement
St Francis Dogs Home is a not-for-profit organisation that seeks to provide temporary shelter and care for abandoned, homeless and unwanted dogs. 
We work to provide the best possible care and rehabilitation before finding them suitable and loving homes for life. We have a non-euthanasia policy except for dangerous or terminally ill dogs. We also seek to instill responsible dog ownership among the community through the example of good animal welfare practice and education.

St Francis Home for Animals has been re homing and rescuing dogs of all shapes and sizes for over 50 years. St Francis is a registered charity, number 205823.

Set in idyllic surroundings just inland from Porth beach, near Newquay in Cornwall, the 7 acre site gives the perfect environment for our dogs.





Our dedicated staff of five, including a live-in manager, plus our willing band of volunteers, mean that every dog has the chance to shine during their time with us. Please click the "Our Staff" page to see who we are.

Our training hall offers indoor play and learning opportunities, and our rolling fields mean every dog can stretch their legs. See our facilities page for further information. We now run dog obedience classes and puppy socialization classes so please see our training classes page for more information.


St Francis also offers limited boarding spaces, and occasional "doggy daycare." If you'd like to find out more, please see our boarding page.

We hope you enjoy browsing the site, please keep checking back regularly to see the dogs in our care who are looking for their forever homes...
