Manchester Dogs’ Home Reopens

Manchester Dogs’ Home has reopened to the public for the first time since 60 dogs died in an arson attack 18 months ago. 

Part of a three-year rebuild, a temporary rehoming facility has been set up in a renovated block, meaning dogs can once again be fostered and rehomed from the site

It marks a “back-to-business” milestone for the charity which saw a public outpouring of support and numerous appeals raising more than £2 million following the blaze in September 2014.

The temporary facility will be used while plans for a state-of-the-art rehoming facility – including food preparation areas, public viewing galleries, an internal garden and 32 kennels – are considered by the local planning department.
