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... Smokey!

Beautiful Smokey is only 2 years old and has already had such a tough life - she was born in a shelter in Calarasi; Romania, and had no real positive bond with a human.

She arrived at the rescue centre in January 2018 as a little grey pup who loved her toys and shortly became a firm favourite with dog walkers and volunteers. 

Smokey soon started showing signs of discomfort, and after a vets visit we were informed she needed surgery on both kneecaps. Whilst in recovery, one kneecap wasn't healing as well as the other and it resulted in us having to fundraise to have her rear leg amputated. We could not have done this without the help of our dedicated supporters.

Our sweet girl has been in rehab and has been attending phyisotheraphy and hydrotherapy sessions to help to strengthen her muscles and aid her in adjusting to life as a tripawd!

Despite her hardship, Smokey has remained the sweet, fussy dog we first met, and she is now strong enough to be adopted out into a home of her very own.
