Featured Dog

Lucaluca- romanian

Sex - Male

Age - 1-2 years

Breed - Romanian Cross

Size - Medium

History - Luca has come over from Romania where there are thousands of stray dogs living on the streets. He is one of the lucky few who got brought to England for the chance at a better life. Romanian dogs are often treated badly and so they learn early in life to be cautious of humans in their fight for survival.

Personality - Luca is slowly starting to come out of his shell. Once you win his affection he likes having his ears rubbed and is starting to play with toys. He's very wary of people and takes time to warm up. It's such a rewarding moment when he comes out to greet you and asks for a love.

A little message from Luca -

"I'm still very scared and frightened that something bad might happen to me, life was hard in Romania. I want a quiet home with a nice human I can learn to trust"

Specific Requirements - No dogs, may be able to live with cats, adult only home (16yrs+)

Adoption Fee - £200



With fundraising, the sky really is the limit. Anything from a sponsored skydive to shopping via a fundraising site, there is something that everyone can do to help out and make such a difference to each and every one of our rescue dogs, the places where they come from and the families they go to.

Here are a few ideas, but if you already have anything in mind let us know!


Join our Monthly Direct Debit Donation Scheme

Give £1 per month: https://pay.gocardless.com/AL00008T1T5BN3



The Easy Fundraising site allows you to shop online as normal at just about every major online store, and makes the retailer donate a percentage of what you spend to your favourite charity (Oakwood Dog Rescue!) It is easy to register and just search for your usual online shops using the search bar, click the link which directs you to the store and continue shopping as normal. It costs you nothing more than you would normally spend, and donates funds to us!

Get Sponsored

Fancy running the London Marathon? Or how about the Great North Run? Ever wanted to skydive or bungee jump? Or a comical pyjama day at work or school? We will always support and promote you in anything you would like to get sponsored for in aid of the rescue. All sponsorship forms and leaflets about the rescue can be supplied. 

Make a Donation

To continue running the rescue we depend entirely on donations and fundraisers. We appreciate any amount you can afford to donate (even just 50p!). You can use either the Total Giving Donate Button OR the PayPal Donate Button.

Alternatively you can do a direct bank transfer. Our rescue account information is -

The card now also applies to anything you spend at Vets4Pets or Companion Care Vets!

Street Collections and Events

We hold street collections all over Hull and the surrounding areas every week. We are always needing volunteers to hold the rescue dogs, hand out leaflets and collect donations on these collections. If you can help out for just 1 hour or the whole day, your help will be much appreciated.
