Start something amazing today – sponsor a small pet pen

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

Every day poorly, injured and homeless small pets come to us desperate for help. By sponsoring a small pet pen 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.

Meet Pineapple and Blueberry – they are bananas for each other

Pineapple and Blueberry came to Wood Green when their owners were no longer able to care for them. These rabbits love to sleep curled up with each other - they’re inseparable pals.

By sponsoring a pen for rabbits like Pineapple and Blueberry you’ll give them the most amazing thing of all – the chance to find a loving new home.

What your sponsorship means to small pets in need

Your donations will have a huge impact on the lives of the small pets in your sponsorship pen. 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.

Plus, it’s not only the small pets in your pen who will be loved and cared for. Thanks to your regular donation we can be there for every pet who comes through our doors.


What is included in your sponsorship?

Because you sponsor a small pet pen you’ll get to know lots of small pets. We’ll keep you up-to-date with their journey with Wood Green. 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 small pet’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 Wood Green supporter events, our supporter magazine, Animals Matter and much more.

Sponsorship: your questions answered

  • Do I sponsor just one pet?

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

  • Can I sponsor more than one pen or species?

    Yes, you can sponsor up to three pens 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 pen, simply click here or call us on 0300 303 9876

  • Where does my sponsorship money go?

    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.

  • Will I be the only sponsor?

    Each pen 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.

  • Can I visit my sponsored pen?

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

  • Will I hear about the pets in my pen?

    Yes, we’ll send you regular updates, including photos and videos, that show you how the pets in your pen 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.

  • Can I adopt the pet in my pen?

    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.

  • Will you tell me when the pet in my pen is rehomed?

    Of course! We’ll email you the wonderful news and introduce the new pet in your pen. 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.

  • How do I get in touch with you?

    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.
