Specialist care, every step of the way

Since we opened our doors in north London in 1924, we’ve been transforming pets’ lives. Today, we’re making a bigger difference than ever through the vital services we run at our centre in Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire and in local communities. But there’s so much more that goes on behind the scenes.

Training, workshops and classes

At Woodgreen we pride ourselves on having a team of qualified behaviourists and trainers to support owners. Our approach to training and behaviour modification is based on current scientifically proven methods. This support transforms pets’ lives, even ‘difficult’ dogs with the most complex needs. We also offer a range of workshops and classes at our centre and online.

Pet Collection service

As well as taking in animals at our centre in Godmanchester, we offer a Pet Collection service in North London, Cambridgeshire, and Hertfordshire. Since its launch in 2020, it’s proven to be a lifeline for many homeless pets and struggling owners who need to give up their pet. Whatever the reason for needing to find your pet a new home, we can help.

Community outreach

The team also help pet owners to prevent common medical and behavioural issues, offering advice on the phone and providing health and wellbeing checks in person.
