Rochdale Dog Rescue
Helping Dogs Find Safety & Loving Homes

Rochdale Dog Rescue work to prevent dogs at Stray Dog Kennels being put to sleep after 7 days if not reclaimed by their owners.

We work closely with a council contracted Stray Holding Kennels who provide us with photographs and essential information about the dogs coming in to their care so that we can during those 7 days ensure we have enough funds and space to bring those dogs who are not claimed into our care. We are often contacted by other organisations with dogs at risk of being put to sleep or by people who need help with re-homing their own dogs and will help out by offering a safe place with ourselves where we can.

The dogs come in all shapes and sizes, ages and breeds. Some dogs are abandoned pets that once belonged to somebody, some are strays and some are simply signed by their owner.

The only certainty for these dogs is that they need our help!

Please see our URGENT DOGS page for details of the dogs currently in our care.


Occasionally Rochdale Dog Rescue are able to place a dog who is not doing well in kennels, is older or needs some TLC due to health reasons with an experienced dog fosterer


All of the dogs we move from stray dog kennels to rescue are transported by volunteer drivers, who give up their time and energy to ensure a dog reaches safety. We are always keen to hear from new volunteers.
