On this page you will find details of dogs in rescues in Scotland and the North of England. We seek spaces for dogs that have completed their 7 days in the pound, and utilising volunteer drivers we move them to these rehoming centres. Once there the dogs are assessed, vaccinated, neutered or spayed, microchipped and wormed. Once fully assessed they are ready for rehoming.
If you are interested in a specific dog featured on this page, please
stating the name of the dog and the county in which the rescue is based; we will happily pass to you the details of the rehoming centre where you can make further enquiries.
This page covers the following regions:
Lancashire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Mersey and Cheshire.
Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Durham and Teeside.
North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and East Riding.
The following ex pound dogs are all in rescues in the North, waiting for their new homes. Could that be with you?
