Cambridgeshire based animal charity, Wood Green has seen footfall double since appearing on Channel 4 documentary The Dog House last week. Wood Green, The Animals Charity, has also seen a 3000 per cent increase in web traffic since its appearance on the show last Thursday. Episode one of The Dog House, left viewers sobbing as they watched loveable pooch Tiny find a forever home. People took to Twitter to share their love for the new show – and for Wood Green, the Animals Charity. Katy Base shared a picture of her dog and said: “Watching #thedoghouse on Channel 4, so lovely to see people rehoming dogs. Makes me cuddle my little rescue even tighter.” We caught up with Tom O’Connell, head of customer engagement at Wood Green, to find out how the charity has changed since the show. The charity was founded in 1924 in the aftermath of World War One, rehoming all the stray animals that were left roaming the streets of London. Tom said the centre’s success over the years was down to their ‘bespoke matching service’, a fact that also attracted Five Mile Films – the company behind The Dog House – to them. Although Wood Green have previously operated on an open-door policy, Tom encouraged potential visitors to call ahead due to the increased interest in the charity. *The next episode of the Dog House is due to air tonight on Channel 4 at 8pm.
