At Wood Green, we know what it means to want the very best for your dog, we love all pets here. Life is unpredictable and understandably, things can sometimes get in the way which are beyond your control. 

We understand there may be many reasons why you’re struggling to look after your dog. Whatever that reason is, it's completely personal to you. Whether it be work or financial pressures, your health, or simply not having enough time to dedicate to your pet, if you’re finding it difficult to cope, that's okay – we're here for you.  

Our teams can provide support that could help you keep your pet at home without having to find them a new owner – including behavioural advice, medical help or guidance with training. We can support you with any issue.
