Dehiwela Shelter ‘Animal Transit Home’

Opened in 1968, the ‘Animal Transit Home’ is an improvised shelter for dogs, with a separate fully enclosed area for cats.

The numbers change continuously as we re-home puppies and kittens, but on average there are about 175 animals residing at any one time. Most of the residents are adult dogs and cats.

Pups and kittens are available for adoption at this home. Please see How you can help.

At the cattery, secluded from the dogs, the cats are free to roam within their enclosure.
