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 £130 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

Dora is a petite female lurcher aged approximately 2/3 years . She came into our care from the inspectors with a history of abuse .

Dora is very friendly to new people and adores human company . She enjoys attention and fusses and pushes her body close for reassurance and strokes . She is very playful with toys and likes to have a huge variety to choose from . She is likely to destroy quite a few of them but will have a lot of fun doing so in the process .

She is good on the lead and is usually polite when meeting other dogs whilst out on walks .


Unfortunately, Dora's unsettling and troubled past has clearly had an impact on her . She can display food guarding issues and also be a little unpredictable . She has been assessed by a qualified behaviourist and we will pass on the report and all advice .

Dora has a great deal of potential but adopters will need to be understanding of her past and be willing to be patient and put in the time and effort with her . She is looking for an experienced dog owner and tends to be better around women.

She is not to be rehomed with children or other dogs . She has a high prey drive and cannot live with cats .
