New opening hours for Manchester Dogs’ Home


MANCHESTER DOGS’ Home will be closed on a Tuesday afternoon to visitors wanting to adopt a dog. This is being done to enable staff to undergo further training. However, the Home will remain open for people who wish to claim their lost dogs.

The Home hopes these arrangements do not cause any inconvenience. The Home will be open six days per week for dog rehoming on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday from 1pm each day.

The Home is situated at Crofter’s House, Moss Brook Road, Manchester M9 5PG. Tel: 0161 205 2874, and collects stray and lost dogs from a 50-mile radius of Manchester.

Homes wanted

The Home is looking for a loving, energetic owner for Berkeley, who is a small cross-terrier pup approximately 12 months old. He is mostly black with a little white patch on his chest. He was admitted to the Home on the 23rd May after being picked up in Ellesmere Port.

Berkeley, because he is so young, is a very lively dog that needs a lot of exercise. He loves to play with his toys. He is a very friendly and loving dog and gets on with other dogs so he could be rehomed with a family who have a dog already. He has been vaccinated and neutered.

This pup has been rehomed once, but was returned for being destructive. However, staff feel that he is just going through his natural puppy phase which he will grow out of and also if he has sufficient exercise. Any prospective owner who has the patience to deal with this very young dog will eventually end up with a very loving and fun companion.

A new home is also needed for Jet, who was admitted to the Home on 28th April. He was brought in by the Tameside Dog Warden after being picked up in Denton.

He is approximately 6-8 years old, medium sized, and black and tan in colour. Jet will not fetch a ball but he does sit on command. He has been castrated. He is friendly with people and gets on well with other dogs.

Home staff feel that Jet would be best suited to a mature person or couple, as although he is friendly towards people and other dogs, he has a quiet disposition.

If you can offer Berkeley or Jet a home, please contact the Home.
