Meet Lila, an American Bulldog who is approximately 4 years old. Her kennel staff say she has a lovely nature but will need an adult only home or one with older teenagers as she could easily knock younger ones over.
Lila needs a family who are used to bigger dogs and have had similar breeds before and who are willing to take her to a good training school where she will do very well as she does like to please her humans.
Lila is fine with other dogs, but we wouldn’t rehome her to a family who have a cat.
If you are interested finding out more and perhaps arrange to meet Lila please ring Pat on 07811404346
Hi, I’m Maude and I’ve been asked to speak for all my brothers and sisters, so I’ll do my very best,
“We are 7 puppies who were brought to the branch by a person in a uniform, we didn’t know at the time that she was one of the RSPCA’s inspectors, but she thought we needed some fresh air and sunshine to grow up big and strong. We were brought to a lovely place where our kennel staff say we are beautiful, lively little girls and boys who won’t be little for very long as we are growing ‘like weeds’.
“Our mamma was sad to see us leave her, but she told us that the RSPCA would find us the best homes we could ask for, where we won’t be frightened and have lots and lots of exciting walks and adventures.
“We would love a family who have had Rottweilers or American Bulldogs or similar BIG, strong dogs before so that they will know what to expect from such large, bouncy puppies as we are. As we are going to be on the large size we’ll need plenty of walks and we’ve been promised that we will soon be old enough to go to school with our new humans to learn how to become ‘model’ citizens.”
If you would like to learn more about us and perhaps arrange to meet us please ring our carer in chief, Pat on 07811404346
Murphy is estimated to be between 7 and 12 months of age. His staff at the cattery say he’s a lovely friendly boy who is lovely with children and came into care with another little cat so he will probably settle in well with another cat in his new home.
Billy (black) and Becky (grey) were signed over to the RSPCA together. They are lovely, friendly cats. Billy is 18 and Becky is 10 years old. We would love to find them a home together. They would have to be indoor cats.
Theo, who is still very much a big puppy is approximately 2 years old. He is a Mastiff cross and he is still growing into his paws. Theo has a shiny black and white coat and we are sure he will turn heads wherever he goes. He came to the branch to find his forever home via the Greater Manchester Animal Hospital.
Theo is currently under the vet because he has small kidneys so he does need someone who is willing to carry on with his treatment if and when prescribed
He is a lovely, friendly, slobbery boy who will be lots of fun for any family who love large dogs. But because of his size we are looking for an adult only home or one with teenage children as he is still uncoordinated could easily knock smaller children over in his excitement at meeting them.
Marlin, is now in the care of one of our Trustees, who is classed as a front line worker (animal care) and a regular fosterer of branch dogs. When we needed to amend her microchip details we found that we had been given the wrong number, only one digit out but it made all the difference. She will be celebrating her 13th birthday on 1st May this year.
Her blood tests have come back as normal even when we thought she was 10 so they are really good for a 13 year old. She is now being weaned off the steroid tablets which were prescribed to help with her ear problems and we hope that she will soon be much better.
Because of her ongoing ear problems and now a suspicious lump whose biopsy is inconclusive, we have to wait until the vets at the hospital decide whether to remove the lump once the Covid 19 lock down is over or to leave it now we know her real age, but we are putting this lovely Border Collie on hold until she is pronounced fit to go. We will contact everyone again once we have the all clear from her veterinary surgeon.
She is a small border collie who is a little overweight and is unsure about some dogs she meets. Marlin came to the branch to find a new family via one of our RSPCA inspectors as her previous owner is ill (not with Covid 19).
We are looking for a quieter home for Marlin, with a garden where she can play fetch and one where her new family will take her to new places and help her to enjoy life.

Meet Ace … I’m looking for my forever home and can’t wait to meet you all when it’s safe to do so. I was left dumped in my carrier. But I’m glad I’m safe now. I’m 5 years old and a very friendly, loving boy.
Ronnie is a 14 week old puppy. He is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross. He is full of mischief and fun and is looking for a home with no small children and a family who understands that he is still a puppy and will get up to lots of naughty things and will need his training carrying on. Ronnie is very loving and loves being with people
Poppy is a little crossbreed puppy who is now just 5 months old. She came into branch care with a broken leg which has now healed but her adopters should bear this in mind and let her have gentle exercise at first.
Poppy is a little sweetie and has been an excellent house guest with her foster family. She is house trained and is dry in the night. Poppy is currently living with Dobermans and a Boxer along with 2 cats and she gets on well with them all.
We are looking for family with older teenage children or an adult only home for little Poppy.
Tia is a 4 year old German Shepherd, who is finding it very difficult to cope with kennel life. Tia was in our care back in September but due to her new owners ill health she has had to be returned. Tia is a lovely dog in the house and with people, but due to her previous life, where she did not see much of life, she does struggle whilst out on walks. Tia does get quite distressed by other dogs and some noises.
We are looking for an experienced German Shepherd family for Tia, an adult only home or one with older children over 12 years of age, and with no other dogs.
We would love to hear from anyone who would like to foster this lovely girl or even better adopt her officially.
Breeze is about 3 years old and a lurcher who has come into branch care via one of our RSPCA Inspectors.
She is a lovely, friendly girl who was very frightened of some men when she first came but having gained in confidence is getting much better when she meets them in the street or the park.
Sadly, Breeze’s left eye had been damaged, probably some time ago and following an eye scan by one of our local vets was found have a damaged retina and a developing cataract. Follow up x-rays of two suspicious lumps discovered that she had 5 pellets embedded throughout her body including one behind her eye. Our vets are confident that this wasn’t an accidental shooting because of the spread from her head to her tail.
Breeze suffers from severe separation anxiety which is getting a bit better in her foster home but she will need a family where there is someone around all the time and where a man in the house is prepared to have lots of patience with her until she realises that she is safe.
Breeze demonstrating her recall…. as long as treats are involved.
Breeze’s fosterer tells us that she is not cat or small animal safe and can be “iffy” with some small dogs, but her fosterers are working with her on this and her adopters will need to continue the training. Luckily, unlike some lurchers she is food orientated. She is currently walked in a collar and harness on most outings. She can travel by car or bus but hasn’t been taken on a train yet.
Meet Jessie, who came to the branch to find a new home via one of our inspectors. Her kennel staff say she is a total poppet. At only 9 months of age she will make a lovely addition to any family who know that lurchers aren’t the type of dog to stick by your leg on a walk.
She gets on well with other dogs so with careful introductions would be happy to join another sighthound’s family.
We are looking for home where any children are over 8 years of age as she could easily knock little ones over as she loves to zoom around and doesn’t always look where she’s going.
If you need further information and would like to meet our beautiful Jessie please ring please ring 07811 404346
Ace is 11 months old and this very handsome boy is looking for a family who understands that he is still and pup and still doing puppy things. He is a lovely affectionate boy who just wants to show you how much he likes you, but at the moment because he is only young he is trying to push the boundries, so he does need someone who is willing to put a lot of hard work into him. We would not rehome him with young children because he does still need training and he could knock a little one over. Fine around other dogs. Knows basic commands Can be giddy but he’s only a puppy. He is strong and does have more growing and filling out to do so he does need someone used to larger dogs. Not a first time owner.
For further enquiries and viewing please ring 07811 404346
Dexter is approx 5 years old he is a Malinois (Belgian Shepherd). Dexter is not a big dog, but his heart certainly is. He is very friendly and loves all people and whilst out on a walk he has been very good with other dogs, but we do think to start with he would be better as an only dog. Dexter is not coping very well in kennels at the moment, he is doing a lot of pacing.
All animals here have found loving new homes thanks to our dedicated, hard working volunteers, the donations from the generous public and of course the thousands of people who have adopted an animal. On behalf of all the animals in loving forever homes, thank you!
