Manchester dogs home

DESCRIPTION

It was established in 1893 to help the stray and unwanted dogs roaming the streets of Manchester. Later covering parts of Lancashire, Cheshire and Derbyshire, today it remains the only Home of its kind, caring for over 7000 dogs each year. Over 95% of dogs are Homed or re-Homed

Manchester & District Home for Lost Dogs was founded in 1893 by a group of Manchester Businessmen who were concerned about the large number of stray dogs roaming the City.

The leading members of the group included Mr. Megson a printer and stationer, (who’s firm is still very active) and Mr. Alfred Nixon a leading Chartered Accountant in Manchester, it was his son and partners who continued to play a leading part in the administrationof the Home until shortly after the last war in 1949.
Recently there was an arson attack by a youth killing alot of dogs and destroying the building, they are currently trying to raise £1m to rebuild the home and pay for the surgeries and medications for all of the dogs that survived the fire but incurred serious injury
