Here You Will Find Information About The Dogs

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 rehoming their own dogs and will help out by offering a safe place with ourselves where we can.




0 DOGS NOW IN EMERGENCY BOARDING, 1 DOG, 3 CATS AND 4 KITTENS IN EMERGENCY FOSTER AND 0 DOGS IN THE STRAY KENNELS, PLEASE HELP!

Unfortunately the number of Bull Breed type dogs that we have to board are a massive drain on our resources and we are struggling to find the funds for Emergency Boarding.

Funding Emergency Boarding is only possible through your donations, and we desperately need to find rescue spaces or funds to ensure the safety of dogs arriving at the Stray Kennels daily.

If you can help with a donation or would like to make a regular monthly donation please use our Paypal link below or via the Help a Poundie page which has more details.

The following dogs are currently at the Stray Dog Kennels and need Rescue Places

The following dogs are currently at the Stray Dog Kennels where they will need to stay for 7 days to allow their owner to claim them.

They cannot leave before the stated put to sleep date.

Unfortunately, the majority of dogs are not claimed so we have to find a safe place for these dogs within 7 days otherwise they are at risk of being put to sleep.

We DO NOT rehome stray dogs directly to the public, but can provide more details on these dogs should they move to another rescue or be signed over into our care.


There are currently no dogs in the stray kennels.



The following dogs are now safe in the care of Rochdale Dog Rescue.

The dogs featured below are now safe in the care of Rochdale Dog Rescue. Once a dog arrives into our care they will be assessed, health checked, neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. These dogs are available for rehoming; some of the more recently arrived dogs may be undergoing assessment still.

Please note that Rochdale Dog Rescue does not rehome to homes where there are children under 10 years of age.

We also need to ensure that if you do not own your own property the landlord has given their permission for a dog and any garden you have is fully enclosed and secure. We also need to make sure any dogs we rehome are not left 'home alone' all day and lastly that any other dogs you have are neutered.

We rehome within an approximate 100 mile radius of our base (but if you are close to this then please do ask us).

If you think you could offer any of the dogs a loving home then please complete our Rehoming Enquiry Form in the first instance.


No. 4720: MAX (Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)
Max needs a new home.
Jack Russell/Beagle Cross, male, born 2/06/2014. He is red, he has a smooth coat and he is small to medium in size. He has been signed over to the care of RDR; he is currently in emergency foster. He's a funny boy with some funny traits so we are asking people to read this new information and apply only if they fit the criteria and can cope with his behaviour. If you have already applied please reapply if still interested, taking into account the below.

From his fosterer:

"Max came to stay with me today and he has been such a bundle of fun! He looooooves his toys and will spend hours throwing them around and playing! He loves a tummy tickle and has been following me around making sure he is involved in whatever I’m up to. I get the impression he isn’t used to boundaries and will grumble if you tell him off, however if you ask nicely or even better redirect with a toy he is more than happy to comply. We are still new to each other and I’m sure he will settle once he learns I’m not a threat. That said he is a dog with a lot to say for himself anyway, he grumbled at his toy for a good 5 minutes for daring to be stuck under the counter! He was very pleased when I retrieved it for him. He’s very affectionate and loves a game of fetch. I’m sure he will make a wonderful addition to the right family.

He is such a personality! He can get nervy and spooked at times but for the most part he’s a typical bolshy little Russell.

He’s lovely and really affectionate for the most part, does seem quite insecure and anything he feels a little unhappy about he growls to let you know. Don’t think he is used to boundaries much to be honest. That said he has been great at being caged at work when needed and sits there really nicely even if he does growl at you for lifting him in - I wonder if he’s be better in a home with another dog to show him the ropes and what’s expected? He’s also a very active dog, he would go all day I’m sure so an active terrier savvy family would be great! 

I think he would be better with a home with experience with difficult dogs. He certainly isn’t an easy dog and can be quite unpredictable with what he does and doesn’t like. Like he’s always been fine with me clipping his lead to his collar but then this morning he growled when I went to do it and proceeded to follow me around growling, if you tell him off he does it all the more but if you ignore him or distract him he stops. He seems to have days when everything just seems to trigger a growl and other days he’s fine. He’s never offered to snap but I wouldn’t push him at this stage.

He races round with his toys getting me to play fetch with him, but he growls at me at least 5/6 times a day, he’s never offered to snap but I obviously don’t push him, really don’t know if he’s just complaining or if he means it yet."
