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 or find them a place with one of the other rescues we work closely with. We are often contacted by other Stray Dog Kennels with dogs at risk of being put to sleep and will help out by offering a safe place with ourselves where we can.

Few people realise that many healthy dogs, through no fault of their own, are being destroyed if not claimed within the week.


7 DOGS NOW IN EMERGENCY BOARDING, 2 DOGS 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. 4566: JESTER (Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)
Jester needs a new home.
Lurcher, male, approximately 4 years old. He is black with white on his face, chest and toes, he has a smooth coat and he is large in size. He has returned to the care of RDR. Jester is a lovely, friendly and placid boy who seems fine with other dogs..."This boy has grown in confidence over the last few weeks and walked confidently at a smart pace. We passed people and dogs with a friendly glance and took biscuits gently. He really has such a sweet face and would lean into me as our bond grew with strokes and friendly chatter. He doesn’t pull on the lead after the first excited minute and Jester would make a wonderful companion." He is not good with cats and small furries.

Thank you to some very kind and caring people we have been able to help Jester! He was moved to emergency boarding on Friday 28th June 2019. He needs a new home as soon as possible.




No. 4619: KAYA  (Spayed, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)
Kaya needs a new home.
American Bulldog, female, approximately 8 years old. She is white and she is medium to large in size. She is underweight, her claws are very long and she has many lumps of varying sizes; some of these are probably malignant so, in consultation with the vet, she has been spayed to stop hormonal changes and we will will be looking for a permanent foster home for her, with all vet's bills paid. She is currently in emergency foster. Kaya is a lovely, friendly girl who is fine with other dogs although she needs to be an only dog in the home due to her being possessive and 'a bit of a bossy madam'.

No. 4633: MAX (Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)
Max needs a new home.
Cockerpoo, male, born in March 2017. He is cream in colour and has a medium coat which will need regular grooming. He has been signed over into the care of RDR. Max is a nice natured boy, who has quickly settled into his busy foster home. He is great with other dogs and as he thrives in their company we will be ideally looking for a home with at least one other dog.   Max also seems to be good with other animals and is housetrained.  He is an energetic boy and has embraced the routines in foster with lots of walks and play time - he loves his food and would enjoy doing some doggy activities. Max is anxious when left, and he so needs a confident home with someone around much of the time, and with experience of separation issues so they can work on this.  He is a clever boy who also does know how to make his owners feel bad for leaving him!

Thank you to some very kind and caring people we have been able to help Max! He was moved to emergency foster on Sunday 18th August 2019. He needs a new home as soon as possible.

Bliss has lots of energy and enjoyed a little run in the field before going down to the river for a good drink.
