Here are our dogs that are ready for rehoming. This webpage is updated regularly.

All our animals who are ready for adoption are also shown on the National RSPCA “Find a Pet” website, where they have lots of free online help and support, if you are considering adopting a pet or have just taken a new animal into your home. We are always happy to give help and advice about re-homing an animal.


You can also download our pre-adoption booklet for dogs PDF 9.4 MB 

Our dogs are all neutered and micro chipped prior to rehoming, which is included in the adoption fees of £120 for adults dogs and £170 for puppies up to and including 6 months old. Additional donations are greatly appreciated to help us to continue with our work.

The next step is to arrange for the whole family to come and meet the dog. It’s best for everyone from the household to meet the dog to rule out allergies or other issues.

We will then arrange to visit your home to discuss your new dog with you and answer any further questions you may have about rehoming. During the home visit, we can ensure the home is suitable and advise on preparing your home and garden, removing potential dangers, and buying food, bedding, and toys. We aim to carry out home visits within a week of the animal being reserved.

During the home visit, we are looking to see that:

You have a good understanding about the commitment involved in adopting your dog. 

The dog will not be left alone for more than 4-5 hours a day and will get a minimum of one 30 minute walk per day, all year round. 

The dog has a secure backyard or garden with fencing of a minimum of 6ft in height, although this may need to be higher depending on the size of the dog. 

That you are willing to take a dog to training classes/seek help if necessary.

If you would like to offer any of our dogs a new home please call our Branch Manager Julia Tucker on 0161 286 2503 or email rspca.altrincham.cheshire@googlemail.com

Minnie is a Jack Russell Terrier cross and she is just under 2 years old.

Minnie came into our care via an RSPCA inspector, she had broken her leg in her previous home and her owner couldn't provide her with the care and training she needed so they signed her over into our care. Minnie had a splint fitted to stabilise her leg and spent many weeks on cage rest in a foster home whilst her leg healed.

Minnie is looking for an experienced new home, she is a fantastic little dog but she is going to require a knowledgeable patient confident new owner to bring her to her best. In the right hands she will be a fun loving affectionate loyal little dog.


Minnie is a high energy dog, she is super switched on and super intelligent, she is so eager to learn and please. Minnie doesn't know how to meet and greet humans or other dogs in an acceptable manner, she has never been taught properly. She is reactive to almost everything when out on walks, we are working on this and she is responding to training, she will have to remain on lead for all her walks.

Minnie is sharing her foster home with 2 resident dogs, cats, rabbits and chickens. Being a terrier she is very interested in the rabbits and chickens, we wouldn't trust her with any small furries. Minnie gets on very well with the younger dog in the foster home but she has far to much energy and bounce for the resident old dog. Minnie could live in a home with another dog but it would have to be the right dog as she can be very 'in your face'.

Minnie could be rehomed to a home with cats aslong as the cats were very dog confident, Minnie hasn't shown any aggression towards to the cat in the foster home but she will chase and doesn't give up with her 'mithering'!
Once Minnie has calmed down she is a true lap dog, she absolutely loves to sit on your knee for a cuddle and loves having her tummy tickled, she also gives you a quick lick at any opportunity.

Minnie will make a super little dog in the right home, she is like a 2 year old puppy with very little behavioural training, with a bold fearful reactive response to any situation that is new to her. She struggles with eye contact and feels the need to protect herself.

Minnies new owner must be willing to seek the help of a trainer/behaviourist to help her settle in and bond successfully with her new family. Also the use of an adaptil plug in has really helped in her foster home. Minnie is crate trained. Minnie is also house trained.
Minnie can jump! She spends alot of her time jumping up for attention, she literally pings everywhere!!

Minnie has learnt in her foster home to stay behind the baby gate although she can easily clear it if she wants to! Minnie will need a very secure enclosed garden in her new home so she can run and play happily and safely, a minimum of a 6ft fence is a must.

Minnie has lots of wonderful characteristics, if she is given the opportunity and the right training, she will make a fantastic little companion. Minnie has an amazing sense of smell, her little nose is always in the air or down to the ground sniffing out the next exciting smell. She is also quite food orientated, all of which massively help with her training but also provides endless opportunities for fun games and keeping her mind active.
Minnie has been neutered vaccinated and microchipped. She is looking for an adult only home with an owner who will always be one step ahead of her!

Izzy is a very sweet small female lurcher who is approximately 4 years old. We have been advised she is a combination of a Staffie, Whippet and Collie.  

She came into our care from the inspectors after her owner sadly died and no other family member was able to take her on.

Izzy is a friendly and very smart girl with a lovely temperament and on the whole is always well behaved.  She adores people and is full of love.She enjoys nothing more than snuggling up to you for lots of cuddles and belly rubs.

She does pull on the lead however she is now walked on a harness which makes it much easier to control her. She is spotlessly clean in her kennel so housetraining shouldn't be an issue in her new home.

Izzy could be rehomed with older children but is not to be rehomed with other animals.
