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 (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 £250 by adopting one of our animals you are saving money and…….more importantly a life.

tobycrosswilmslow2 Toby is a 4 year old terrier crossbreed.  This young man can be quite dominant so he does need someone that knows the terrier stubbornness.

We are looking for a home where there are no small children

renniewilmslow2 Rennie is a 4 year old Shih Tzu who has come into our care through no fault of his own. We want a home for Rennie where there are no small children because he has been tormented by them in his previous home and is now a little scared.

An adult only home is best suited for him where there is someone at home most of the time.

For more information please ring 07811404346

Roslyn – Reserved

roslyn-staffie Roslyn is an 18 month old (approximately) friendly, typically boisterous, Staffordshire Bull Terrier.  She came to the branch to find a new home via one of our inspectors and the Greater Manchester Animal Hospital.

She will make a brilliant addition to a family with older children, or an adult only home, as she could very easily knock little ones down when she is playing.

If you love staffies with their smiling faces and ever wagging tails, Roslyn could be the one for you.


Brian – Reserved

brianwilmslow5 Brian is approximately 4 years old and a Mastiff cross.  He came into our care in May through no fault of his own and even though he is a gentle dog he has found it very difficult to find someone who would like to meet him.

Sadly he has not had a good life so far, he has yellow staining on most of his body where he has been lying in his own urine and he is also very thin.  Brian just loves people but can be a bit “barky” with other dogs and does pull on the lead.

He has now been fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered.   We would not rehome him with young children simply because when he does put his weight back on he will be a large breed dog who could easily knock little ones over.

harvey-lurcher Harvey is a 2 year old male lurcher who is in the care of RSPCA Bury and Oldham because his owners had too many animals in the property.

They are looking for someone who has breed experience for Harvey as he has certain requirements.  Due to him having a high prey drive he will need to be rehomed as an only pet, he walks on a muzzle which is common practice for the greyhound/sighthound breed and this will be one of the conditions for adoption.

He will also need a solid fence to keep him from chasing any small animals and he should only be let off lead in a secure fenced off garden/area.

am-bull-black-and-white This lovely black and white Boxer x American Bull Dog is only 8 months old and already looking for a new home through no fault of his own but because his family is about to be made homeless.

We’ve been asked to find him a loving new family who will give him lots of love and care and a forever home.

So, if you have an adult member of your family at home most of the day and are prepared to carry on White Sox’s training,  to be sure that he blossoms into the well adjusted member of society he is destined to be, we’d love to hear from you.
