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



Finlay is a very beautiful 11 month old male border collie/pointer cross. He came into our care as his owner had to move accommodation and wasn't able to take him along. He is currently in a foster home.

Finlay is a very friendly dog who loves all the attention he can get. He is also very bouncy and boisterous and loves to run around and play with his toys. He can get mouthy when he is overexcited .He is crate trained and generally travels well in the car.

Finlay is only an adolescent dog and seeing he has both border collie and pointer in him, this makes him brimming with energy . He has plenty of stamina and therefore has very high exercise requirements. He will need regular long walks as well as games and activities to keep him both mentally and physically occupied . This should make him a calmer and happier dog at home.

Finlay lived with another dog previously and they used to play all the time. Since being in our care, we have found that he barks and cries a lot whenever he meets other dogs. This is likely to be frustration as he wants to play with them . He needs to be taught to stay calm and to walk much better on the lead.

Finlay is looking for an experienced ,active dog owner. One with knowledge of either border collies or pointers would be especially beneficial. He would be most suited living in the countryside or a more rural location where he can run and enjoy his freedom somewhere safe.

Finlay could live with another neutered dog but it must be one that is fairly confident and tolerant as he can be very full on. Alternatively it would do him good if his adopters have plenty of contact with other dogs or are part of a dog walking group.

Whoever takes him on must be prepared to provide him with additional training and be patient and work with him . He is only a very young dog so has plenty of potential and is very food motivated.

He is not to be rehomed with children as we feel he is too bouncy and could knock them over . Children of secondary school age could be a possibility . He is not to be rehomed with cats.

Jasper is a lovely 3 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He came into our care from the inspectors .

Jasper is a typical Staffie being extremely affectionate and loving. He likes nothing more than getting lots of attention and having cuddles and enjoys belly rubs. He is also boisterous, has a lot of energy and can be very giddy . He does get super excited when it is time for his walks but does settle after a short while and is generally well behaved whilst out and about. He knows basic commands and loves his food. He came into our care quite underweight. He has put on a little but this should improve once he is settled in a new home.

Jasper could be rehomed with children of secondary school age. He is to be rehomed as an only dog and not to be rehomed with cats.
 
Jasper would make a wonderful loyal companion and he is waiting patiently .
