Looking for a dog

So, you’re looking for a new canine companion? We can help! At Wood Green, we find hundreds of dogs loving new homes every year – sparking beautiful friendships.

Wondering why you can’t see any dogs on our website? Well, as you can imagine, our dogs are incredibly popular, with over 15,000 people registering their interest in a pooch every year. To ensure each dog is rehomed with someone who meets their needs, as well as manage this enormous demand, our experts review each registration and make a decision on whether we have any dogs that may be a good match. If we do have a dog that could be right for you, we’ll be in touch – and if not, we offer plenty of advice on where to continue your search.

We only contact people who are potential matches with our dogs, so we kindly ask that you do not contact Wood Green to check on the progress of your application. For any other pet advice, please never hesitate to call or email us.

Our centres are currently closed to visitors due to Covid-19, but we are now able to start safely placing some of our pets in loving new homes. Thank you for your support and understanding at this time.

Have you considered fostering a dog?

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 perfect match. If you’d like to help, get involved with fostering.
