Registered Charity No: 298348 (England & Wales).
From humble beginnings in 1924, when Miss Louise Snow opened the first centre in a small house in Lordship Lane, North London, Wood Green, The Animals Charity has grown to become one of the leading animal welfare and rehoming organisations in the UK.
Our dedicated care for homeless and injured pets continues today and is a benchmark in the field of animal welfare. With our three Centres located in Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and London, we find loving homes for around 5,000 animals every year. As well as rehoming cats and dogs, we rehome many other animals including rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, ferrets and chickens.
Gifts in wills are vital to Wood Green and enable us to provide the best possible care for homeless pets, which includes carrying out around 20,000 medical checks and over 2,000 operations every year. We also provide advice and support for pet owners to increase the public’s awareness of its responsibility towards animals in society.
Our Cambridgeshire centre covers 52 acres and is home to our Coco Marcus Kennels, Phyllis Pratt cattery, and state-of-the-art surgery, all built because of gifts left in wills. We do not receive any government or lottery funding and instead rely solely on the support and generosity of the public. Every kind donation we receive funds the life-saving medicine, food, warmth, and shelter that the homeless and injured pets in our care rely on.
