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.


5 DOGS NOW IN EMERGENCY BOARDING, 5 DOGS IN EMERGENCY FOSTER AND 1 DOG 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.


No. 4351: DEXTER (Neutered)  
Dexter needs a rescue space.
Staffordshire Bull Terrier, male, approximately 2-4 years old. He is red and he is small to medium in size. Dexter is a nice, friendly, bouncy boy who seems Ok with other dogs.

Without the help of RDR he would be at risk of being put to sleep on Sunday 26th June 2016. If he is not claimed a rescue space will be found for him or the funds for emergency boarding. 






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.
