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... Biscuit!

Poor Biscuit has been at the centre for a while now and he's just has no luck in viewings, and no one ever applies for him!

When Biscuit came to the centre from Romania, he was incredibly shy and recoiled if you put a lead near him. Staff and volunteers worked tirelessly to spend time with Biscuit, earning his trust.

Months on, Biscuit has improved greatly in confidence and enjoys going on walks with the dog walkers... Once he has cunningly managed to get enough treats out of them!

Biscuit can still be wary of new people and needs the loving bond a forever home can provide to show him that the world is not a scary place! 

Once Biscuit is your pal there is no looking back! He requires an adult only home with people that are willing to work with Biscuit. He can live with a female dog but he really doesn't like cats!
