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... Rufus!

Gorgeous Rufus is a big softy that LOVES attention!

He has become one of our collection dogs because he enjoys meeting new people and receiving belly rubs. Rufus is good with children and can potentially live with children as young as 5 years old - he is a big doofus though and can get a little excited, so children that are used to dogs the size of a lab would be best suited to him.

Rufus does not like other dogs and he hasn't met a cat before - having Rufus in your life will fulfill all pet needs, trust us! Rufus would benefit from a family where he won't be left longer than 4 hrs at a time as he can get lonely and loves human company.

So far Rufus has not had one application and we cannot understand why, if you want a loyal, goofy, best friend for life - Rufus is your man!
