Dog sponsorship

Start something amazing today. Sponsor a dog

Give the dogs you love a happy future from just 21p a day (£6.50 a month).

Every day poorly, injured and homeless dogs come to us desperate for help. By sponsoring a dog you will provide warm shelter, food, medical care and lots of love for lots of pets one after the other. And we will keep you updated at every step of their journey.

Edgar the dog

Meet Edgar – he is feeling smiles better

One year old Edgar was brought to Woodgreen as a stray. He is full of beans, loves long walks, squeaky toys and is always quick to make friends with other dogs.

By sponsoring a dog like Edgar you’ll give them the most amazing thing of all – the chance to find a loving new home.

What your sponsorship means to dogs in need

Your donations will have a huge impact on the lives of the dogs your sponsorship supports. They will help to provide:

  • a safe warm shelter
  • tasty, nutritious food
  • medical checks and life-saving operations
  • fun activities to build trust and confidence
  • cuddles, toys and games to make their stay a happy one
  • behaviour training to help them find the right new home

Thanks to your regular donation we can be there for every pet who comes through our doors.

What is included in your sponsorship?

When you sponsor a dog you’ll get to know lots of dogs. We’ll keep you up-to-date with their journey with Woodgreen. All the little details that make them who they are – from their favourite toys and snacks to the games they love to play.

We will send you monthly email updates on how your dog’s lives are changing and updates by post three times a year.

You will also receive our welcome pack, special sponsor’s certificate, photos, invitations to Woodgreen supporter events, our supporter magazine, Pets Matter and much more.

Sponsorship: your questions answered

No, you’ll help lots of homeless pets, one after the other. As soon as we find one pet a new loving home, another will come in where they’ll receive the loving care they need.

Yes, you can sponsor up to three species at once: one for dogs, one for cats, and one for small animals like rabbits and guinea pigs. If you would like to sponsor another pet, simply call us on 0300 303 9876.


It helps pay for the love and care that your sponsored pets receive: everything from nutritious food and toys that help to build trust to essential vaccinations and, if required, life-saving surgery. It also helps support every pet who comes to us for a second chance at life, right up until the day we find them a new, loving home.

Each pet is supported by a number of kind sponsors. We simply couldn’t provide all the food, warmth and expert care that homeless pets need without that generous help.


Unfortunately, we can’t arrange visits at the moment.

Yes, we’ll send you regular updates, including photos and videos, that show you how the pets you sponsor are getting on. You’ll feel like you’re really getting to know them. Plus, we’ll let you know the great news when a pet has moved on to a new loving home.

Yes, it is possible. However, because we try to find each pet a new loving home as quickly as possible, the pet you wish to adopt may not be available. Call us on 0300 303 9333 if you’d like further details.

Of course! We’ll email you the wonderful news and introduce you to the new pet you’ll be sponsoring. This is one of the best parts of being a sponsor, when you know a pet you’ve cared for has found a new loving home.

We’re here to help if you have any questions or comments. Simply call our Supporter Relations team on 0300 303 9876 or you can email us at supporter.relations@woodgreen.org.uk – we’re here to help every weekday from 9am to 5pm.
