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

Rosie is a very pretty 5 month old female Border Collie. She came into our care from a home that already had 4 other dogs and her owner was struggling to cope with so many. She is currently in a foster home.

Rosie is quite shy at first but once she gets to know you she is extremely friendly and playful. She loves to cuddle but also has a great deal of energy and loves to play fetch as well as with her squeaky toys . She can be a little nervous on walks ,especially when she is near busy roads . However once she gets to a field she loves running around and is great with other dogs and people that she meets . She could do with additional training on the lead to be taught to walk nicely .

At home she is very well behaved but will need help with toilet training , she is only a puppy after all.

Rosie appears to be much happier and confident in the company of other dogs so we feel it would be best if she is rehomed with another dog .She can be very wary of men , although this appears to have improved since she has been in foster . As Rosie is only a puppy and could do with additional training in many areas , it would do her no favours if she was left on her own for long periods. She is therefore looking for a home where she will have company for the majority of time, especially as she also seems to get upset when she is left on her own .

Rosie could be rehomed with older dog savvy children as she can get boisterous when playing .She could also live with cats.

Please note that border collies have huge amounts of energy and stamina so will require plenty of exercise and play .
