Wolfwood is a small, friendly rescue centre based in a rural area to the east of Lancaster in North Lancashire with passionate staff who care about the welfare of the animals and birds we have the privilege to care for.
We look after injured, distressed and displaced wildlife, mainly working alongside local Vets, RSPCA Officers and occasionally the Police and members of the public. We give all care and treatment to the wildlife in order that they may be successfully released back into their natural habitat, healthy and strong.
We take on the dogs from the Lancaster City Council Stray System when they haven't been claimed after the statutory seven days and also accept a limited number of unwanted and needy dogs who, through no fault of theirs and for a variety of reasons, need a new home. They receive refuge, care, treatment and love, until we find them new and loving homes. Often we have no history of the dogs, which can be challenging. They are assessed and treated for any medical treatment or procedure. We work on correcting any unacceptable behaviour issues and request that new owners continue with the advice and training.
There are at least four other organisations in the area who deal with cats and domestic pets, we don't normally accept them.
We are self funded and rely on the proceeds from our two charity shops, kind donations and wonderful supporters who fundraise - we couldn't survive without them.
Wolfwood is a registered charity: No:1133826, claiming Gift Aid wherever possible. If you make a donation and pay Income Tax, please allow us to claim it back by completing the simple form on the Donations page, thank you - it all adds up.
We are run by trained staff and annually inspected and approved by the RSPCA.
Our premises are registered and inspected annually by Lancaster City Council.
