Dogs in Rescue Centres
Available for Rehoming

If you are considering rehoming a dog, have a look at our ex-Poundies who are waiting in different rescues and foster homes around the UK and Ireland for a new life and a new home.

Could that loving new home be yours?

The welfare of the poundies is a top priority for Rochdale Dog Rescue and naturally we vet the rescues we work with very carefully; to find out more click here, or to see dogs awaiting rehoming in your area click on the images below.

Where do the Poundies go?

When looking for rescue spaces for dogs out of time at the pound we will only use rescues that have been personally visited by one of our team, or come recommended via other rescues.

Rochdale Dog Rescue will only use rescues that have a clear and adhered to neutering/spaying policy. They must also vaccinate, worm, flea treat and health check. Beyond this, they need to offer an assessment of the dog's temperament, carry out homechecks, and ideally follow ups.

If you are interested in a dog from any of the rescues we work with, you will be assesed for suitability as per that rescues rehoming policies.

The dogs we are dealing with have already lost at least one home, we want to ensure that they have the best chance of lifetime homes when we seek rescue spaces, hence the criteria.

Occasionally if a dog has been signed over by its owners or some history is know, we may use one of our own experienced foster homes instead of a rescue centre. Here the dog can learn more about home life, and may have the opportunity to meet other dogs, cats, horses, children and livestock. This means that we have a much clearer picture of the dog before rehoming and can ensure the right home for the dog.
