Our vision is a world where all pets are cared for in loving homes for life.
We are proud to be the pet charity that makes a difference to the lives of pets and people across the UK – bringing them closer together, as seen in Channel 4’s TV series The Dog House.
Wood Green are extremely proud to be the focus of an eight-part documentary series called The Dog House. Tune in to Channel 4 every Thursday at 8pm to see how we match homeless dogs with the perfect new owners, and get a fascinating insight into our work and the huge difference it makes.
Volunteering is a unique opportunity to make a direct impact on the lives of pets in need. Be part of a great community, and help Wood Green by joining our retail volunteer team.
You love your pet with all your heart, but should your pet outlive you, do you worry who will be there for them? With Pet Promise, we promise to care for your pet, when you no longer can.
The animals at Wood Green are given the best care and attention - but many feel much happier in a loving home. Fostering is a great way to give pets some extra love and respite while they’re waiting for their forever home.
“ My son spotted Perry on the Wood Green website – just a few days later, he came home with me. Life just wouldn’t be the same without Perry – he makes me laugh and love every day, and he keeps me fit too! ”
“ Wood Green did a wonderful job of nursing Baz back to health, but he was terrified of the world. Over the last two years, he’s transformed into a gentle, sweet-natured, highly intelligent dog with a well-developed sense of humour! ”
“ When our old dog died I missed him terribly, but we decided not to have another. Volunteering at Wood Green means I get my ‘doggy fix’ at the same time as helping a good cause. ”
“ It makes me so happy to be able to leave a gift in my Will knowing I can help other vulnerable animals in the future. It’s the least I can do to help abandoned animals have a chance of happiness, and a loving family to take care of them. ”
