Channel 4 Is Looking To Give Abandoned Dogs Forever Homes In New Show

By Laura Rogan

The Dog House is returning for a second season, and they need wannabe dog owners to take part!

According to PETA, at any given moment there are approximately 100,000 homeless dogs in the UK, all in need of loving homes to take care of them. Helping raise further awareness of adopting homeless and neglected pups, Channel 4’s The Dog House is returning with animal charity Wood Green, who take in hundreds of dogs every year to help find them a new home.

The first season saw Wood Green set up hidden cameras in the rescue centre, tracking the behaviours and lifestyles of wannabe dog owners to help them find the perfect pet. The footage allowed the charity to determine which humans and dogs had the most chemistry to make the perfect match. The process took 12 weeks of analysing, eventually leading to the beautiful rescue pups finally finding their forever homes.

This year, the show will return to Cambridgeshire working again with Wood Green, with a whole new host of dogs looking to find their match.

The casting call reads:

“We’re heading back to Wood Green, The Animals Charity in Cambridgeshire, where the team of expert dog-matchers are ready to introduce you to your perfect pooch.


“We’re looking for people who can offer a lifelong home to a rescue dog, and would be happy to share their reasons for doing so.”

Wood Green has a team of over 60 dedicated workers who help find new homes for the pups they rescue every single year, providing shelter, care and expert advice to pet owners. The charity has three centres based in London, Heydon and Godmanchester.
