With your support, we can help more pets in need

Strays like Dennis have nowhere else to go. Please help us find them their new home.

The pandemic has closed our doors to the general public, but we’re open to pets in need every day of the year and still supporting strays and unwanted animals. We rely on public donations to continue our work: please donate today.

Help us bring more pets out of the cold

When Dennis arrived with us, he was missing much of his fur, sore and in pain, covered in fleas and mites. In every sense, he was a sore and sorry sight. After being treated by our veterinary team, Dennis’ fur started to grow back, and he's now thriving. We help around 80 pets a week - please help us support every one of them.

Wandering the streets with a broken bone

Six-year-old Betty was found wandering the streets with an open fracture to her right hindleg where the tibia bone had broken through the skin. She was rushed into surgery, where our Vet discovered that the fragment of bone remaining was too small to attach any screws to. This meant Betty’s leg couldn’t be saved and the only option was to immediately amputate.

Betty had clearly been through the wars but despite serious surgery and goodness-knows-how-long alone on the streets, she was one of the friendliest pets that any of us can ever remember looking after.

After 33 days of medical and loving care, we found Betty the ideal forever home with new owner Aly: “She settled in within two minutes of arriving home and has been my shadow since!”

Why support Wood Green?

Ever since we first opened our doors in north London in 1924, we’ve been transforming pets’ lives – and through them, the lives of owners. From those humble beginnings we’ve grown into one of the UK’s largest pet charities and our Godmanchester base is one of the largest animal rehoming centres in Europe.

Last year we cared for 4,269 dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits and rodents in our centre. And alongside our animal care and rehoming, we helped thousands of pet owners with advice, support and training so they can give their pet everything they need.
