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.
Or you can make a donation via our Just Giving page - just click on the link below ...
Please find us on Facebook where you can follow updates on all the dogs, find out about transport requests and fundraisers?
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.
PLEASE DO NOT ENQUIRE ABOUT REHOMING THIS DOG UNTIL SHE IS IN THE CARE OF RDR.

No. 4639: ROSIE (Microchipped)
Rosie needs a rescue space.
Jack Russell Terrier Cross, female, born 6th March 2013. She is black and tan, she has a smooth coat and she is small to medium in size. "Rosie is a very sweet natured girl but she is very nervous around new people and just likes a quiet life... she's good on the lead and always looks back to see if you're close by."
Without the help of RDR she would be at risk of being put to sleep on Monday 23rd September 2019. If she is not claimed a rescue space will be found for her or the funds for emergency boarding.
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. 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'. "Kaya is a complete sweetheart, she's so much fun and absolutely loves jumping around being silly. She often acts like a puppy, bless her. I decided to have a little run with her in the shade, which she enjoyed. After the 4th lap I was completely done in, so stopped and cuddled her instead! Her future doesn't look great but she really loves life right now and very much deserves a chance to enjoy the time she has left."
Thank you to some very kind and caring people we have been able to help Kaya! She was moved to emergency boarding on Wednesday 29th May 2019. She needs a new home as soon as possible.
No. 4634: CHARLIE (Neutered, First Vaccinated & Microchipped)
Charlie needs a new home.
Shih Tzu, male, born in June 2011. He is grey and white and he is small in size. He has been signed over into the care of RDR due to a change in his owners' circumstances. "Charlie is an easy, laid back boy with no apparent issues. He meets and greets dogs in a polite way and despite having no experience of cats prior to arriving in foster he was well mannered and calm around them. Charlie is great around people and fine with older children. He likes his walks and is happy to be left for short periods. He is an all round well behaved little gentleman."
Thank you to some very kind and caring people we have been able to help Charlie! He was moved to emergency foster on Monday 26th August 2019. He needs a new home as soon as possible.
No. 4636: BILLY & DAISY (Billy First Vaccinated & Microchipped, Daisy Spayed, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)
Billy & Daisy need a new home.
Border Collies, male and female. Billy was born 27.9.14 and Daisy 4.3.18. They are both black and white and medium in size; Billy has a semi-coat and Daisy has a smooth coat. They have been signed over to the care of RDR. Billy and Daisy know basic commands although Billy walks better on the lead than Daisy, they are house-trained and seem Ok with other dogs, but not cats..."I met Billy and Daisy today and I took them both out for a walk together. They were both very excited to begin and pulled, but both were manageable. After ten minutes Billy really calmed and didn't pull, Daisy did pull throughout the walk but she waited when told and happily walked next to Billy. This pair love each other, they look for each other and have a great bond. They were both really good when passing other people and dogs and happily walked buy by some cows with no trouble."
Thank you to some very kind and caring people we have been able to help Billy & Daisy! They were moved to emergency boarding on Monday 2nd September 2019. They need a new home as soon as possible.
These dogs Rochdale Dog Rescue are helping their owners to rehome privately. They have not been signed over into our care and have not been assessed by ourselves or will not have our lifetime support or backup. We will chat to prospective homes and home-check on behalf of their owners but any rehoming agreement after this will be arranged between the current owners and prospective home.
There are currently no dogs in this section.
The following dogs will be moving into the care of another rescue if not reclaimed or are now reserved and will soon be going to their new home.
No. 4635: LEO & LILY (Neutered, Spayed, First Vaccinated & Microchipped)
