Welcome to Oakwood Dog Rescue

Oakwood Dog Rescue

Oakwood Dog Rescue was set up by Gill Williams, founder of Oakwood Canine Services in 2009, initially to support clients who could no longer take care of their dogs for any reason. The Registered Charity has since grown, and now rescues dogs from across the UK and abroad. Based in Hull on Sutton Fields, near Kingswood, Gill is now assisted by a fantastic team who work tirelessly to take in, assess and re-home as many dogs as possible. 

Why adopt from Oakwood Dog Rescue?

Lifetime support

We offer our adopters help and advice from day one, we are contactable over many different forms and strive to provide the best level of customer service possible. All of our adopters receive a 4 week support call to assess how the dog is doing after adoption.

Full Assessment

During their stay, our dogs are assessed with children, other dogs and cats - we try to cover as many bases as we can to help you find your perfect match!

Ready to go!

All of our dogs are fully vaccinated, microchipped, neutered and are kept up to date with flea and worming treatments.

4 weeks free training

Our adoption package includes four weeks of free training with Oakwood Canine Services for our local adopters. These sessions cover anything from reactivity to recall to basic manners!

Dog of the month... Little Max!

Max was found bleeding and battered in a Romanian shelter. He couldn't eat without multiple dogs ganging up on him and attacking him - he couldn't even sleep safely as they would fly into his hut and attack him whilst he was sleeping.

Max bares many battle scars - the most noticable being his section of missing jaw. It doesn't affect him in the slightest nowadays but has left him with a bit of a hanging lip! 

Max came back to us in November due to no fault of his own. He is ready and waiting for a safe and loving home that will treat him like a king! Max does enjoy a walk, but he equally enjoys lazing out on a comfy dog bed or having a chew on a soft toy.

He is very good in the car and will plod by your side. Due to his past he is fearful of other dogs and doesn't want to live with one. He can be a bit wary of hands so would be best living in an adult only home or with sensible children over 13. He could live with a confident and dog-savvy cat too.
