  Where we believe it is a dogs life!   Reasons to Re-home a dog


The Cith Dogs Home was set up in Bucknall, Stoke on Trent to provide kennelling for local stray dogs, and to re-home them if they were not claimed.

The dogs that are rescued by the dog wardens are kept in the care of the council for 7 days. If they have not been claimed at the end of that period, we take them into our care and look after them until they find homes.

We also take dogs from homes where they can no longer stay, e.g. because of a marriage break up or the death of the dog´s owner.

We take dogs of every breed, and our area covers all of Staffordshire, Derbyshire Cheshire and the West Midlands, although we will always consider homes further afield, and have re-homed dogs over a very wide area. We have rescued and re-homed many hundreds of dogs since the rescue was started.

Many of the dogs that come into the kennels have been abused or abandoned and are in poor condition and often need medical treatment before they can go to their new homes.

We always have dogs in our care that need homes. If you want to know more, or may be able to offer a home, please ring Vicky on 01782 304130. or email us on

To see a dog on this website, we have listed the dogs in size order, so use the simple navigation keys above, Large Medium or Small, to see dogs of all breeds within that size category.

please telephone for a chat about the dog. We will ask you for information about yourself and your family - sometimes this may seem intrusive but we are trying to re-home our dogs in the best home we can, from their needs but also from yours so that your new dog has the best chance of fitting in.

The next stage in the adoption process is a Home Visit. We only do visits by appointment, after we have spoken to you about a particular dog. We do not visit in advance of having a possible pet for you as we like to match dogs and owners on a one-to-one basis.

If you do not live close enough for us to do a visit we can sometimes arrange for another rescue to see you on our behalf.

In certain circumstances if this is not possible we do re-home out of area, subject to a vets reference.

Remember, a dog isn't just for Christmas, but can make an ideal family member or friend. Call us on 01782 304130 for further information.


There are many reasons to choose and rehome a dog from The City Dogs Home.

Not all rescue dogs have behaviour issues
Many of the animals arrive at the Home through no fault of their own, often as a result of the owner moving abroad, a baby on the horizon or a relationship breaking up.

All of our animals receive a detailed behaviour and temperament assessment.
Our behaviourists are highly experienced and knowledgeable about specific breed traits, giving new owners complete peace of mind

Every rehomed dog has a full veterinary check
This includes worming, flea treatment and vaccinations.
