Welcome to:

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. 


We are unable to accept applications from families with children under 10 or cats. Any applications sent with cats and/or children under 10 will not be processed this also includes people who are expecting a child in the very near future.

We also cannot accept any donations at the centre due to a very high infection rate of coronavirus in our area.

Ready to go!

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


Sam is a beautiful older gentleman searching for his forever home, this poor boy has lived on the streets his whole life and has never experienced what it's like to have a loving family of his own.


Despite his age Sam is still full of beans and does enjoy the company of his ladies so although he would prefer to be an only dog. 


Sam does have limited vision in one of his eye caused by an old injury, it doesn't cause him any pain and doesn't require any further tratment but he cant always see people coming and could get spooked quite easily when he doesn't expect you to do something, he would prefer a home without children who might make him jump


Have a look below to see some videos and pictures of Sam, maybe he's the dog you've been looking for!

Help us pay our vet bills!

We have recently managed to save many dogs from their deaths in Romania. They all have a death date over there and helplessly wait in the kill shelter until their very sad day arrives.

We step in wherever possible and our aim is to save any and all of these dogs from dying needlessly.

It can be very expensive giving these dogs the treatments that they need whilst they wait for their date of transportation to the UK.

Whilst waiting for them to be brought to us they are treated from the likes of gardia, heart worm, skin conditions, flea and worming treatments, neutering and much much more.

Our latest bill has just come through at £3985.11
