Wood Green is open to unwanted and homeless pets 365 days a year. We’re seeing more and more pets who need urgent surgery or lengthy training and rehabilitation. Please support our work today.

Four legs and two - meet the dogs we've helped at Wood Green, and the humans getting them back on their paws.
Say hello to the pets we help
Every animal arrives at Wood Green because someone could no longer look after them, or because they were found abandoned or stray. Big, small, pedigree or pooch, we’ll make sure they’re fit and well thanks to our onsite veterinary team and surgery. And if they’re shy, angry or scared, we’ll help them get used to people again and what life in a home feels and sounds like.
Only once we’re sure a pet is ready for another home will we start to find them a new family. Sometimes it’s love at first sight. Sometimes it takes a while. But we’re always here until we find a home for our guests.
Found at the side of the road
Stray West Highland terrier Grant was left abandoned and brought to Wood Green by a dog warden who found him. With time and patience, he regained his trust in humans and found his way into a loving new home.
Teenage pups are hard to beat
Lurcher cross Poppy came back into our care when, sadly, a new baby meant she couldn't stay with her adopted family. Teenage dogs need patience, boundaries and attention - could we help once again?
Please help homeless pets in need

Help us gives dogs like Dennis another chance
When Dennis arrived, he was in a terrible state with bald patches, itchy, cracked skin, and he was nervous of everyone. Over time, we helped him recover to heal his sores and feel comfortable with people again, and now he's happily rehomed! Every month we see dogs like Dennis, and your donations mean we're ready to help.
