Dog of the Month!



6 Years Old


Siberian Husky

Simba came to us from a lady who had taken him on from somebody else but was unable to keep him as she already had several of her own dogs. 

Simba is a very calm and friendly dog. He is not a typical Husky! He does like a play but settles back down immediately.

He does bond with people very quickly and would rather not share his family with another dog. So even though he mixes well we would rather not home him with another dog.

Because of his large size and strength (his is strong on a lead) we will also not re-home him with young children.

Simba just wants a nice quiet home where he can relax and spend his days being spoilt rotten.


Welcome to Oakwood Dog Rescue - Winner of Charity of the year 2014 in the Goole & Howdenshire Business Excellence Awards

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 whatever reason. The not for profit organisation has since grown, and now rescues dogs from across the UK. Based in Hull on Sutton Fields, near Kingswood. Gill is now assisted by a great team who day in day out, work tirelessly to take in, assess and re-home as many dogs as possible. 

      Can You Help? To continue running the rescue we depend entirely on donations and fundraisers. Any donations are very much appreciated (even if it's just 50p!). You can use the 'donate' button to donate using PayPal. Thank you for your support.
