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

Marlin – update

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
marlin-bc Marlin, has had blood tests which have come back okay for her age which is ten, BUT she has still not been able to shake off problems with her ears and is being treated with steroids and antibiotics.  Because of her ongoing ear problems and now a suspicious lump whose biopsy is inconclusive, we have to wait until the hospital is able to remove the lump once the Covid 19 lock down is over, we are putting this lovely Border Collie on hold until she is fully recovered.  We will contact everyone again once we have the all clear from her veterinary surgeon.

Instead of keeping her in kennels for a further unspecified time she is now settling into home life with one of our Trustees who is classed as a front line worker (animal care) and a regular fosterer of branch dogs.

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 quite ill.

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.

Restrictions on rehoming

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Adopt a Dog, Branch News and Updates | Comments Off

Due to the Corona Virus from 25th March 2020 we are no longer be able to rehome the cats and dogs in our care. Once we have the all clear from the National Society and Government we will add photographs of all our cats and dogs currently being cared for and looking for new homes.

This will protect our volunteers and adopters alike as our adoption process involves face to face handovers and home visiting. It does not mean that the animals themselves pose a threat to people’s health.

ronnieoldham 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

Harriet-an older lady

Harriet This is little Harriet who was sadly bereaved.   She is a lovely little dog once she gets to know you but can be a bit grumpy when she wants to be.

At 11 years of age all this old girl wants is to have a loving home and a happy retirement.   She still likes her walks and to toddle around the garden.

If you would like to meet Harriet with view to adoption please ring 07811404346 to discuss Harriet further and perhaps make an appointment.

Theo – on hold

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
max-mastiff-x Theo is still very much a big puppy he is approx 18 months 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.
