Our small dog rescue shelter is based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire and opened in November 2017. It was the realisation of a dream of our founder, Janet, following her working at the Boldesti Public Shelter in Romania.
In 2017 Janet felt she could no longer just support the shelter and the volunteer, Mădălina, from afar and felt compelled to visit. Before setting off to Romania, Janet raised funds by doing a ‘sponsored slim’ for her spaniel, Bella. The funds raised from this were used to fund our first ever 3-day spay clinic.
The trip to the Boldesti Shelter in Romania was life-changing for Janet, and upon returning home, she quickly arranged for a mini-shelter to be built so that some of the dogs she had met in Romania could be brought over here to safety. To see our dogs for adoption please click here.
Since then we have continued to raise funds to bring dogs over here, and ensure they go to loving and kind homes.
Here at Woodfield Dog Rescue we also strive to provide financial support through funds raised for the 400 plus dogs in the Boldesti Public Shelter to help with food, vet care, vaccinations, spay clinic and all other preparations needed to help the dogs leave the shelter to places of safety. We also raise funds to help with shelter improvements and kennel builds.
When the transport arrives at Woodfield with the new dogs, we aim to fill it back up with provisions for the dogs at Boldesti, so we are always grateful for donations of food/bedding etc. We are a small team consisting of hard-working dog-loving volunteers, and we are always on the look out for interesting new partnerships, so if you’d like to get involved with helping us raise urgently needed funds and awareness, please get in touch today.
