The Manchester Dogs’ Home was founded in 1893 by a group of businessmen who wanted to do something to tackle the growing number of stray dogs in the City.
The inner-city based charity grew so much over the years, that in 1999 they acquired a run down former boarding kennels. This building was named the Cheshire Dogs’ Home is a Specialist Care Unit that cares for dogs with health issues but also for those dogs that have difficulty in adjusting to the kennel environment at the Manchester centre.
The charity takes in over 7,000 dogs every year. The dogs receive excellent care and support so they can be rehomed with new families.
