About Us

Founded in early 2007 in response to a local need, Wolfwood rescues, rehabilitates and releases injured and displaced wildlife as well as caring for and finding new loving homes for rescued, unwanted and needy dogs. Our work is constantly expanding as we take on any challenge, caring for the injured wildlife until they are safely released. We work alongside local vets and RSPCA Officers who bring us dogs and wildlife from a wide catchment area.

We are a small, friendly rescue centre and frequently have many dogs needing new homes. Plenty of advice and support are part of our personal and friendly service. We work on a one to one basis and tailor each individual dog needs to prospective new owners. Some dogs are easily homed, while others require significant commitment from their new owners, and take more than the required two visits and time together before we are happy to release them. The dogs are all wormed, fully vaccinated, neutered (if old enough), routinely treated for fleas and Identi-chipped. A contribution towards covering this cost is greatly appreciated.

Morecambe charity shop 2019

The revenue from our two charity shops is vital to the ongoing work. The Lancaster shop is at 201, Bowerham Road, our second one is on Market Street in Morecambe. The vital income generated from them is used carefully and wisely. Wolfwood receives the support of local vets, and has the dedication, enthusiasm, knowledge and experience to move forward. The centre draws on qualified training, sixteen years experience of rehoming a wide range of animals and over 21 years equine experience. We have a good working relationship with our local Dog Wardens, Vets, the Police, Dog Pounds and Animal/Wildlife Rescue Centres in various parts of the country.

Wolfwood receives no funding apart from what can be raised from the shops, fundraising and generous donations, any help towards our running costs, which include large vet bills, is hugely appreciated.

If you pay income tax then any donation will be of greater value to us if you Gift Aid it. We can claim the tax you paid on the donation from HMRC – it doesn’t cost you anything and every penny counts!

We are fortunate to be supported by many excellent vet practices and pet services and are sincerely grateful. These are some of our supporters.
