If you find yourself no longer able to look after your pet, that’s okay – we’re here for you. As well as taking in animals at our centre in Godmanchester, we are now pleased to offer a collection service in North London, Cambridgeshire, and Hertfordshire. It’s already proven to be a lifeline for many vulnerable pets and struggling owners who need our help.
Inky's owners got in touch when they found themselves in a difficult situation financially, and decided the best thing was to hand her over. Upon collecting three-year-old Inky from North London, Wood Green's Veterinary Team found that she was also pregnant, so she was quickly placed into the capable hands of a devoted Wood Green foster carer. Inky gave birth to five kittens, but sadly one didn't survive, and another was saved via an emergency C-section. Mum and her kittens remain in our care, as we work hard to find them all a loving new home.
Whatever the reason for needing to give up your pet, be it work or financial pressures, your health, or simply not having enough time to dedicate to your pet, we can help. Our friendly team will listen, advise and if you do need to hand over your pet, we’ll make it as easy and painless as possible.
Whilst the service is limited to certain postcodes, we can be flexible. If we aren’t able to come to you, there are other options – so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
