About the Manchester centre

Welcome to Dogs Trust Manchester! We're a happy, friendly team and would love you to come and visit us at the centre to see our fantastic facilities and all the waggy tails of our doggy guests.

We can care for up to 112 dogs in our 56 air-conditioned kennels. We also have sandpits and water fountains for our four-legged residents to play in, as well as a full veterinary and surgical suite on site.

Visiting us

By public transport:

The closest station is Denton, which is a 20-minute walk away, but the train service is extremely infrequent. The next closest station is Stockport, which is a 15-minute drive away. If travelling into the city of Manchester, it is a 15-minute drive or taxi ride from Manchester Piccadilly or buses 201 or 206 take approximately 30 minutes from station to centre.

By road:

Junction 24 on the M60 motorway. Parking available on site.
