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



Sally is a 2 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross who came into our care from the inspectors . She has unusual markings with 2 black patches over both eyes, a black spot between her ears and a white tip on her tail . She is currently in a foster home .

This is what her foster mum has to say about her.

I have a lot of love to give and show affection to both adults and children with my quirky tail wag.

I love to sit close to people and give cuddles .

I like to pick bread laid out for birds and when my human's back is turned I have sampled their garlic bread and shortbread !

I know that I should not beg and am learning to go to my bed when people are eating and I look away.

I go round muddy puddles or jump over them to avoid getting my paws wet.

I walk well in traffic and I am learning to sit at a roadside before we cross.

Sally loves her walks and is good on a lead . She has high energy levels and loves playing tug of war and fetch.

She has learned to sit for her her food and her housetraining has improved since she has been with her foster mum and now asks to go out in the garden.

Sally loves human company so is looking for a home where she won't be left for long. She could live with older children . She is dog friendly towards other dogs on walks however she is to be rehomed as an only dog .

She wasn't very good in the car when she first arrived with us and but she is slowly getting more used to car journeys now.

Sally is truly a delightful girl and would make a wonderful addition especially we feel to a family unit .

Max is a 6 and half year old male Shih Tzu/Jack Russell Cross. He was rehomed in November but sadly was returned a fortnight later . More details will be given upon making enquiries .

Max is a sweet boy and he has many positive qualities . He is obedient and in many ways is an easy going dog who isn't demanding . He is very clean so housetraining will not be an issue at all.He loves his walks and his toys. He is well behaved when out and about and is generally fine when coming across dogs on walks. He also travels well in the car and is fine being left for short periods .

Max is however shy and nervous among strangers initially . He is very much a dog that needs space and must be allowed to come to you on his own terms and when he is ready . He does not like to be fussed or carried and is not a lap dog at all . Once he gets to know you , he does actually enjoy a good fuss and is an affectionate boy but again it is very much when he is in the mood . He simply loves having his back scratched .

 

Max is looking for an experienced dog owner who will give him the time to adjust and bond with them as well as his new surroundings. He would make a good companion but his new adopters need to understand that he can be a little unpredictable.

He is looking for an adult only home and is to be rehomed as an only dog.
Max
