Welcome to Wolfwood Wildlife and Dog Rescue!

We are a small charity dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of dogs based in Lancaster, also providing help to those in the wider area of Lancashire.

Many of our dogs have been abandoned to the stray system, neglected or lack basic training. Our small, dedicated team work tirelessly to care for our rescues and to give them the best experience possible whilst they remain in kennels.

Wolfwood Dogs For Adoption
We provide shelter and care for animals that are injured or abandoned.

Our aim is to find loving homes for all adoptable animals.

Wolfwood is the only registered wildlife rescue in our area. We rehabilitate and release many different species including hedgehogs, owls, swans and many more.

Wolfwood liaises with RSPCA officers, local veterinary centres, members of the public and, occasionally, police officers to help distressed, displaced and injured wildlife in need and provide them with the best care possible before their release.

We do not take in cats or most other small domestic pets but we do have a limited number of spaces for ferrets and small domestic birds looking to be rehomed.

Wolfwood also provides volunteering and work placement opportunities for local students from GCSE level right through into higher education. We want to encourage anyone with a passion and enthusiasm for this industry of caring for animals in need and supporting our local wildlife.

Our Mission

To offer refuge, care, treatment and love to all animals until where appropriate, we find them new and loving homes.

We work on correcting any unacceptable behaviour and ask new owners to continue with our advice and training.

Birds & Wildlife

All injured birds or wildlife should be assessed by a Vet as soon as possible.

We work alongside our local RSPCA Officers and Vets to provide specialized care and rehabilitation for injured wild animals, ultimately returning them to their natural habitats.

Wolfwood Animal Charity


We are run by trained staff and are annually inspected and approved by the RSPCA. 

Our premises are registered and inspected annually by Lancaster City Council.


We receive no Government funding and rely solely on the proceeds from our two charity shops, kind donations and wonderful supporters who fundraise - we couldn't survive without them!
