What We Do

We understand the value of the bond between owners and animals. Our Community Team work to provide options to keep pets in loving homes wherever possible and appropriate, providing welfare friendly alternatives to rehoming.

Our Community Team are experts in their field and passionate about animal welfare and pet ownership. In line with Oak Tree's values, we are non-judgemental, look to find solutions to problems and aim to be approachable for anyone who needs us.

We believe in being proactive, trying to prevent animal welfare issues arising and relationships between owners and animals breaking down. The Community Team work throughout our community to provide practical animal welfare support, education and advice.
