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. 4767: TEDDY (Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)

Teddy needs a new home.

Patterdale Terrier, male, approximately 3 years old. He is black, he has a smooth coat and he is small in size. He has returned to the care of RDR. Teddy is a very friendly boy who is house trained, he knows basic commands and he seems Ok with other dogs. He is looking for a home with experience of terriers and as an only dog.

"Walked lovely Teddy today, he came out of his kennel and gave me a lovely hello. Not sure if he remembered me or that's his normal greeting to everyone as he's such a friendly boy. We set off at a fair pace, Teddy's a very busy boy and likes to pack a lot into his walks and lead the way. Once away from the traffic I put him on a longer lead and he enjoyed the extra freedom to do some exploring and silly runs. He has excellent recall, came straight back to me when called even before he knew I had treats. Teddy knows how to sit when asked, he takes treats ever so gently and even the treats I placed on the floor and told him to leave, he did and only took them when I said he could. Teddy loved having cuddles and would roll on his back for tummy tickles at every opportunity. He's a lovely little Terrier!"

No. 4793: REX (Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)

Rex needs a new home.

Jack Russell Cross, male, born 29/05/2021.  He is black with white markings with a smooth coat and he is small in size. He is currently in emergency foster with other dogs, cats and older children. Rex has 3 legs but this does not seem to bother him at all.  He seems fine with other dogs and enjoys a stroke and chin tickle.

"Rex was brought to me by Aunty Wendy who had been walking him for the last few weeks. She had built up a relationship with him and explained that she had found that he had a few quirks but had always been friendly towards her. 

Well I didn't know what to make of him for the first few days. I'm still not sure how to explain his atitude or character; I will try my best to describe him to try to help find him a great home. 

So Rex was a stray - we have zero history. He has a leg missing - this looks to be an amputation rather than a deformity. Rex on the surface is lively and greets people willingly with a waggy tail. He is fine meeting other dogs. However Rex grumbles, growls and snarls a lot. Now I won't lie, this was quite unnerving at first - he is difficult to read - he enjoys being picked up and carried under your arm, he snuggles in for cuddles and strokes, he enjoys being fussed but he grumbles a lot during interaction. He will seek to be lifted by tapping your legs. If you put him down he whips around to look at his missing leg. 

I suspect his behaviour is trauma related. He is definitely affected by whatever happened to him to loose that leg. 

Now Ive held off writing this as I wanted to be more sure of what we were dealing with however he's still quite confusing - I do love him though! Now I'm over the grumbling he doesn't phase me at all and we have a right old chat - I'm sure he thinks he's talking! I can stroke him while he grumbles, he has never escalated. 

He has shown no aggression to me or my family, even when he's acted and sounded like he is going to eat me. This is not a guarantee that he will never show aggression, that is impossible with any dog. However I have pushed him a little by handling him/stroking him while he's grumbling to test the water and he clearly has his reasons for what he does but he doesn't appear to want to back it up or escalate. It's very bizarre. 

I have started to discourage the grumbling and left him be if he starts - I have rewarded nice behaviour & used distraction (food/toys) & ignored the growls. He is doing it a lot less now that he's settling but I've no doubt he will flare up again once moved. The missing leg in no way slows him down. He is lovely in the home, clean, not destructive, can be left while you pop out for a couple of hours. He has got on with my dogs on the whole but he can be a bit of a pest in the morning wanting to play etc so I'd say he could live with another dog or dogs but it would have to be a calm/patient one. 

Absolutely no children or visiting children, he needs someone who is Terrier savvy, patient and with maybe a warped sense of humour in that they don't mind being grumbled at and will happily chat! He does need a routine where he gets two walks a day. He will walk as far as a normal dog - he can tow a little too. He is absolutely lovely now I have a two walk/two feeds a day routine going with him. 

He will check boundary fences and gates for an escape route & try to squish under gates if there's a gap, however he doesn't seem to be able to climb. He travels in a crate with no problems. He can retrieve a ball though the trick is to have two identical balls to swap with otherwise he will grumble at the ball he retrieved for you! 

He will suit an adult home, no cats, secure garden."

No. 4794: ZELDA (Fully Vaccinated)

Zelda needs a new home.

Cat, female, approximately 18 months old.  She is white with black patches and tail and she has a smooth coat. She came into the care of RDR with two kittens; she will be rehomed when the kittens have been rehomed and she has been spayed. She is currently in emergency foster:

"Zelda, Mum to kittens, is quiet, friendly and wants to be loved. She can be chatty and does squeak at you. She shows interest in toys and has had a little play with a wand toy but I'm sure as her kittens grow up her personality will shine through more. She has shown so far that she has a placid and a fantastic personality. She isn't one for cuddles or to sit on a knee but will step on you when reaching for a treat. She loves treats, doesn't like wet food and is litter tray trained."

No. 4795: RUBY & LIBBY 

Ruby and Libby need a new home.

Kittens, female, born 1.08.2022.  Ruby is tabby and white and Libby is white with tabby patches. They came into the care of RDR with they mother; they will be rehomed when they are fully vaccinated at approximately 12-14 weeks old. We will be looking to rehome them together. They are currently in emergency foster:

"Ruby is the more adventurous and outgoing of the two. Libby is the quieter of the two. They are both very playful and like to climb the scratching post, they like to play with balls but they do find entertainment in each other. They both use the litter tray extremely well and they like to be near each other. They are both getting used to humans as well. I'm sure as these two grow a little older more of their personality will come through. They are typical kittens and are learning what new household noises are and that they aren't scary."

You will find full details of these kittens in their album in the photo's section on Facebook or if on FB by clicking on the link above to their album.

If you are interested in offering Ruby and Libby a forever home please complete the form below, please put as much detail as possible, this helps us to build a picture of whether they would be a good match for your family.

No. 4797: BUDDY (Neutered, Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)

Buddy needs a new home.

Cat, male, approximately 18 months old.  He is tabby and he has a smooth coat. He has been signed over to the care of RDR; Buddy is a lovely, friendly cat who loves to play and would prefer to be the only cat in his new home.

No. 4798: MILO (Fully Vaccinated & Microchipped)

Milo needs a new home.

Beagle/Spaniel Cross, male, born 29.12.21. He is black and white with black flecks, he has a smooth coat and he is medium in size. he has been signed over to the care of RDR. Milo is a very friendly, boisterous boy who is house trained, he knows basic commands and he is Ok with other dogs. 

"I met Milo this morning. He's quite a lively boy and not brilliant at walking nicely on his lead. He has loads of energy so really it's not surprising he was like a coiled spring after being cooped up in his kennel. Milo's only a youngster and does have a lot to learn but in the time I spent with him I really feel he will soon start to calm down and become an amazing companion for someone. He does listen and will at times do as he's asked but his enthusiasm to be off exploring does sometimes gets the better of him. Having said all that he's such a friendly boy, he does have a tendency to jump up to show you how friendly he is and didn't mind me and Aunty Wendy picking him up and bundling him over a stile. Aunty Wendy even got a very sloppy kiss by way of thanks off him. Milo would really suit an active family who can keep up with him and give him all the time and training to turn him into the fabulous dog I'm sure he can become."

No. 4796: BELLE (Spayed, First Vaccinated & Microchipped)

RESERVED: Belle has a new home.

Terrier Cross, female, born 4/02/2014.  She is black with a rough coat and she is small in size. She has been signed over to the care of RDR.   Belle is a lovely, friendly girl who knows basic commands, she is fine with other dogs but not with cats.

"I met Bella this morning and what a beautiful little girl she is. She seems a little unsure and confused at the moment with her new surroundings but was very friendly and gave lots of kisses and cuddles. Bella walks lovely on her lead. She likes to have a good sniff and will follow her nose but soon carries on with her walk when you ask her to. She was happy for me to lift her and carry her over a stile and once in a field I let her have a run around on a longer lead which she seemed to love. Think I'm going to have to make the most of my walks with Bella as I'm sure she'll not be waiting long for her forever home!"

Currently in emergency boarding Belle will be going to her new home soon.
