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.

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.

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.

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.
