The Cith Dogs Home was set up in Bucknall,

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.

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

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

Every rehomed dog has a full veterinary check
