Adoption Procedure


Our adoption procedures have now changed, we are aiming to provide potential adopters with a better experience and a less stressful adoption for our dogs.

All dogs available for adoption are now available to view on the website, please read through their information carefully and if you think you would be able to meet their needs, get in touch with the home directly.

Sadly, the majority of the dogs in our care have at some point been strays, and for whatever reason, have not been claimed by their owners. Due to this, we may not know the full background of the dog you are interested in, but we will of course tell you as much as we can.

To adopt a dog from either Manchester or Cheshire Dogs Home, you will need to pass a home visit and have AT LEAST one successful meet and greet, although most will require more trips.

Everyone who lives in your home will need to visit the dog, as well as any very regular visitors.

If you have a resident dog in your home they will also need to meet with the dog, however, please note that currently, we are unable to adopt to homes with resident dogs due to not being able to safely carry out dog meetings whilst social distancing, we hope to continue this as soon as it is safe to do so.

To adopt one of the dogs we will need to see proof of ID as well as proof of address and that you can have a dog in the property, ie tenancy agreement, proof of ownership etc.

Our adoption fee includes –

A full health check


Provided that this is medically viable relating to age and health and that the home has the facilities to carry out the procedure safely for the specific dogs’ requirements. Alternatives will be discussed if required.

Owning a dog can be a very rewarding experience and owning a rescue dog can be even more rewarding as you watch them come out of themselves and begin to explore and learn about you and your family.
