The Manchester Home has since become an inner city rescue centre, while an old, run-down site was transformed into a Cheshire Dogs’ Home. Every year, over 7,000 dogs are taken care of at both homes, many of which never get reclaimed by their owners and require close attention during their stay.

In order to provide them with personalised care and support, a Specialist Care Unit at the Cheshire home support them with various behavioural and mentally stimulating activities!

Once fit and healthy, these dogs are made available for adoption, so with always more than 250 dogs looking for their furever home, take a closer look today.
