Merseyside Centre

Based in Huyton, Dogs Trust Merseyside has a dedicated team that help hundreds of dogs find much-needed homes every year. We're really grateful for our fantastic supporters who help us keep caring for these dogs. 

If you have any rehoming queries or want to know more about a particular dog, please call the centre on 0151 480 0660.

We never put a healthy dog down, so Sponsor Dogs Lexi and Kara help us make sure we're there for every dog for as long as they need us.

Our Centre


In The Spotlight:


Balla has been returned to the centre once more, again after her owners had a baby and felt that they couldn't give her the time she needs. She loves to play and have cuddles and is quite an active girl and loves going for walks.

Balla is looking for a home with someone who has got time to play games with her and give her lots of cuddles. She can live with children aged 6 and over but she doesn't get along with cats or other dogs. She can be left for a few hours and is house trained.


If you think you could give Balla a new home, please contact Dogs Trust Merseyside on 0151 480 0660 or drop into the centre at Whiston Lane  Liverpool L36 6HP, United Kingdom




Here's a quick introduction to a few of our adorable residents. If you could offer one of them a home, give us a call or drop in and visit!

Do you ever wonder who would care for your dog should something happen to you?

Our Supporter Relations Officer, Aimee Best, can let you know about our free Canine Care Card Scheme, to make sure your four-legged friend’s future is safe.  

She can also help with information about leaving a gift in your will or donating in memory of a loved one.

Aimee is here to spread the word about the work we do at Dogs Trust.  She is very happy to come out and talk to groups or can arrange a tour and talk at the newly refurbished rehoming centre.

She also runs some local fundraising events for Dogs Trust Merseyside.
