What happens when a pet arrives at Wood Green
When any animal is brought into our care, our top priority is their health. We give them a thorough check and treatment for any medical issues or injuries. For some, this could mean urgent, life-saving surgery.
And rescuing a pet is just the start of their journey. From nurses and vets to behavioural specialists and animal care staff, we have the expertise to give each pet the very best support – every step of the way.
Specialist care, every step of the way
Some of the animals we care for arrive with us very anxious or scared, or with other behavioural needs. This is where our behavioural and training specialists step in, alongside our most experienced animal carers and handlers, to see how we can help each pet get back on their paws.
Our dedicated teams work together to map out an individual plan for every pet’s care. This can include shelter, medical treatment, behavioural therapy and fostering, all to get each pet to our ultimate goal of a new home.
Whilst we don’t want to keep animals at our centre any longer than necessary, we always make sure they are ready before we start to rehome them. And beyond life at Wood Green, we are here to support pet owners with any advice they need too.
