More Than Pet People
Animal boarding has been operating on the current site in Stour Row, just outside Shaftesbury, for over 50 years. Branscombe Kennels and Cattery consistently offers high levels of care for the four-legged members of the families, from all across Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset and beyond.

Putting Your Pets First
We offer a year-round boarding service for when you are not able to be there yourself.
From single days and weekends to longer stays we strive to accommodate all requests.
We are able to offer a dog grooming service in our newly refurbished grooming salon.
Dogs can be groomed while they stay with us to save you another journey, or can be booked in independently, and can be pampered whenever they need it. Please contact us for an appointment.
