Adopting from The Dog House

Wood Green, across their three locations, manage to rehome 8000 pets per year.

You can’t just visit the shelter to meet the pets, as oftentimes the changes are stressful enough for the animals without having passersby come-and-go.

If you are serious about adopting from Wood Green, they require you to contact them prior to visiting the shelter.

You can do so by emailing at [email protected] or calling 0300 303 9333.

We bet they’re going to have hundreds of people looking for pets after the series is broadcast!
