How we help

Every year, Woodgreen supports over 8,000 pets and people. The amazing matchmaking work you see on The Dog House is just a glimpse of the specialist care and expert advice we provide every day, thanks to our supporters.

What happens when a pet arrives at Woodgreen

For every animal brought into Woodgreen, our top priority is their health and wellbeing. Our Veterinary team give them a thorough examination and treatment for any medical issues or injuries, including life-saving surgery.

Some pets that come to us are very anxious or scared or have other behavioural needs. This is where our behavioural and training specialists step in, alongside our most experienced animal carers and handlers.

Our teams work together to plan every pet’s care. This can include shelter, treatment, behavioural therapy and fostering – until they’re ready to find a new home.

We don’t want to keep any pet at our centre any longer than necessary, but we always make sure they’re ready before we start the rehoming process.

The difference we make for pets and their people

Caring for pets in need

Our rehoming centre in Godmanchester is purpose-built with pets in mind. We help dogs, cats, and a variety of small pets.


We take in abandoned pets and strays regardless of their needs, so some of our animals need a lot of time and care before they’re ready to find a new home.

Pet advice

We offer advice, support and training for pet owners. Whether you need advice on toilet training your dog, want to join a rabbit care workshop, or have a more complex question, we’re here to help.

We're here for pets like Bella

We couldn't give dogs like Bella the vital care, support and safety they need without the support of people like you. Will you give pets a miracle?


£45 could cover the cost to feed six dogs like Bella for a week


£8 a month could help provide a full vet's medical examination for a pet in need
