Adopt a Dog

We prioritise dogs and puppies who have been rescued by RSPCA inspectors from often appalling conditions, where their lives are in danger from neglect or physical assault. These are the rescued dogs and puppies in RSPCA branch care that are looking for caring forever homes. To see more information and photos (if available) please just click on the “.. continue reading” link which will take you to each dog or puppy’s full information and photos then by clicking on their thumbnail photos you will be able to view larger images.

Can you offer a permanent or foster home to any branch dogs? Please see the contact details on the right for more info or to arrange a meeting.


We ask for an adoption fee of £120 for an adult dog or £150 for a puppy under 6 months of age (cash please) to offset some of the costs we incur in caring for and treating the dogs in our care. Please contact us for terms when adopting an elderly dog. When compared with the initial expense of essential welfare costs when obtaining a “free” dog or puppy from the free ads or a neighbour, such as neutering, vaccinations and flea and worming treatment the estimated cost of which is now well over £300 by adopting one of our animals you are saving money and…….more importantly a life.

An excellent site for people who would like adopt but worry about coping with a rescued dog for the first time is

Once you have chosen your dog and the day arrives to take him/her home in your car it’s really important to comply with the law and ENSURE S/HE IS SECURED SAFELY

mal-x-husky-now The branch would like to thank everyone who has expressed an interest in adopting one of these puppies.   We received many more requests than we have puppies who needed loving new families and would ask people to keep looking for their special rescued puppy or adult dog.

If, for any reason, these potential adoptions don’t progress we will get in touch with everyone who has sent their details again.


We have a litter of Malamute cross Husky puppies in branch care who will be ready to go to live with there new families in about 2 weeks.

They came to us via our inspectors along with mum at 2-3 weeks of age because they weren’t being cared for properly.  As you can see from the photos taken at various stages of their short little lives they have done really well since coming to us.  They will be ready to go to their new homes in a couple of weeks’ time.

Mum will be looking for a home of her own too, once she’s been neutered in 2 or 3 months.

Please see our adoption policies HERE

peppermastiffx Pepper is a 6 year old Mastiff cross.  Pepper has come into our care due to her owners’ change in circumstances.

She is very loving when she gets to know you she just needs a few minutes when she meets someone new.

Pepper has not been used to mixing with other dogs outside so does need an owner who knows Mastiff types and a home with no small children

kaden2 Kaden came into our care extremely thin lurcher and even though he has put on nearly 2kg he is still very slim.  He needs somebody who understands his breed, he is very loving and still needs some TLC

Kaden will not be rehomed to families who have cats and other small furries.

Please visit this rescue website which has excellent advice for potential Lurcher owners.

kayla-x-breed-5 This is Kayla, a little crossbreed who is just 10 months of age.  Kayla is now in a foster home where they are delighted by her progress, the fosterer says that Kayla is a very loving dog and just loves to please, but she can get a little excited at times but this is just due to her still being a puppy.   Kayla is meeting many new people and dogs and is getting on great with everyone she meets.

She is about the size of a Parson’s Jack Russell Terrier and would love an understanding family to take her home.

We are looking for a family who are looking for a dog that like going for long walks.  She would be better with older children because she could possibly knock little ones over

If you would like to meet her please don’t hesitate to ring (voicemail) or email to make an appointment.
