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.

Dog care advice

Getting ready for your RSPCA rescue dog

Due to changes in the way we complete our VAT Return, as a result of VAT changes at RSPCA HQ, we are now required to clearly display any VAT in our Rehoming Fees and Rehoming Documentation.

Generally our rescue animals are free of VAT, but some which come to us for rehoming via the RSPCA Inspectorate may be liable to VAT.

In all cases, the rehoming fee will be as shown on our website and will include any VAT where applicable.

Adoption fees are non-refundable, except under exceptional circumstances at the Branch's discretion.

From 1st July 2023 our adoption fees will be £200 for adults dogs and £250 for puppies up to and including 6 months old. Any dogs currently on reserve will be honoured at the original adoption fee. The cost includes neutering, flea control treatment, vaccination against Kennel cough, micro-chipping.

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


Harvey is a very small male terrier cross who has come to us through the inspectors . He is approximately 8/9 years old.

Harvey has been a pleasure to look after and is pretty easy going . He is a friendly and confident dog . He may be a slightly older boy but he is very sprightly , has plenty of energy and loves his walks . He has been fine meeting other dogs whilst out and about .

He is very clean in his kennel so housetraining shouldn't be a problem in his new home .

He could be rehomed with older children and possibly cats as he did live with one previously . 


Kye is a 1 year old male small to medium size crossbreed who has come to us from the inspectors . He probably does have some Staffie in him but otherwise we are unsure what mix he is . A few people have remarked that he resembles a small dingo .

Kye is only a young dog and therefore very lively and full of beans . We have found him to be a very friendly boy but he is boisterous and excitable and does jump up . He also can be stubborn and has a mind of his own .

He loves his walks and has plenty of energy .He seems keen to interact with other dogs on walks and wants to play . He does know some basic commands but would benefit with additional positive reward based training in his new home . 

Kye appears to be scared of cars and is very reluctant to get into them. He seems to be fine once he is in and travelling but adopters may need to gradually build up positive experiences of getting into them .

Kye is better being rehomed as an only dog and is not to be rehomed with cats . He could possibly live with children of secondary school age .
