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.

VISIT OUR ADOPTION POLICY PAGE AT http://www.rspca-tameside-glossop.org.uk/about-the-branch/our-policies

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 http://www.animalsinmind.org.uk/

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 http://www.rspca-tameside-glossop.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/Transportingdogsincars-1.pdf

Sally – sadly her owner has now passed away

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off

sallycolliewilmslow1 Sally is a 7 year old Collie who has lived with an elderly man most of her life.  She needs someone who understands her breed.  Sadly Sally spends a lot of time in her bed, anyone who knows Collies will know this is very unusual for the breed.  Sally needs someone with lots of time and patience so that Sally can become the dog she should be

bty Tammi is a 10 month old Crossbreed pup.  We think she may have a little bit of Collie in her because she loves to be doing things.   Tammi would suit an active family who will enjoy spending lots of time with her

Ace

acewilmslowpup1 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.  We would not rehome him with young children just because he does just want to say hello but 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.

Lily and Luna – Reserved

patmalteseandchou We have been asked to rehome Lily and Luna through no fault of their own.  Lily is 6 years old very sweet young lady who loves everybody.

Lily (Maltese Terrier 6 yrs old) and Luna (Chihuahua 2 yrs old) are having to be re homed because of their family circumstances. They are much loved pets and would make a wonderful addition to a family who are used to small fun loving dogs.
Lily was being prescribed quite expensive medication for a skin allergy. However, this has now been managed. Although they are small dogs they still love to go out for long walks and are friendly, sociable and loving.
If you think you could give this pair a home together and would like to meet them, you would be more than welcome

For further information on this lovely pair please ring 07811404346
