Manchester and Cheshire Dogs Home
Manchester and 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, (whos 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 administration of the Home until shortly after the last war in 1949. Over the years the City of Manchester has grown around Manchester Dogs Home and it is now very much an inner city rescue centre. To off set the inner city environment of our Manchester Home we regenerated a run down site that is now known as Cheshire Dogs Home.
