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

Saskia is a beautiful female German Shepherd/Akita Cross who is approximately 6 years old.

She came into our care from the inspectors and was extremely underweight . She has since put on 6kgs and is looking in much better condition.

Saskia is a lovely dog with a wonderful temperament . Not a lot seems to faze her and she is pretty laid back. She is affectionate ,friendly to everyone and loves her back being scratched .

She can be excitable and giddy and jump up.However she is very alert and a smart girl and appears to respond well to training. She is extremely food motivated and has a grasp of basic commands and will sit and give paw. 

Saskia does have a lot of energy so is looking for a home where she will be provided with plenty of long walks and exercise. She is quite strong on the lead and is walked on a harness.

She is good with other dogs so could potentially live with another neutered male . She could also live with children of secondary school age.


Timmy is a very handsome 2 year old male Greyhound/Saluki Cross. He came into our care from the inspectors . He appears to have been passed around through no fault of his own and lived quite a sheltered life. He is quite underweight at present.

Timmy is a little timid and shy initially but is the most affectionate ,sensitive and gentle boy. We are not sure if he was walked much previously as he does have the tendency to be a little worried on his walks and by new situations . However his confidence seems to have improved in the short space of time that he has been with us and he seems to be enjoying his walks more.

He is well behaved when out and about and is excellent on the lead. However what he loves most of all is being a couch potato and snuggling up on the sofa for lots of cuddles.

Timmy needs a patient and dedicated owner who will provide him with the basic training that sadly hasn't been invested in him. He does not know many basic commands and will most likely need help with housetraining. He is still only a young boy and his love of food and treats mean he should be a keen learner.

Timmy loves human company and is looking for a home where his new owners will be around for the majority of the day. He could possibly live with a neutered female dog and older children. Due to his breed, it is probably safer if he isn't rehomed with cats or other small animals .
