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.

Adoption fees can vary according to breed starting at £120 for an adult dog or £150 for a puppy under 6 months of age (cash or bank transfer 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

Molly – Reserved

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
molly-sbt Meet our Molly, who is an 18 month old  Staffie crossbreed.   Poor Molly has been in kennels since February, but due to Covid-19′s emergency measures has not been able to meet any prospective new families.

Her kennel staff say she is a lovely, girl who can be a bit shy at first, but soon comes round.   Having been in care for so long she has been having lots of training sessions which have been brilliant as she is so keen to learn new things, such as sit, stay, wait, find it, spin, go through your legs and lots of other fun commands too.   In fact she will be a joy for any family whether it’s an adult only home or one with older children of 10 years plus and where there is someone at home most of the time.

As with many rescued dogs she will need some time to settle into her family’s routine and will tend to pace and need lots of attention during her first few weeks before she begins to realise that this lovely family and home are forever. See the rule of 3

If you would like to meet Molly please email the branch and we will be please to send you our perfect match form and our adoption information by return.

Restrictions on rehoming

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

We have received an update from the National Society concerning the Corona Virus 25th March 2020 directive.   We have been advised that we are now able to rehome our animals in a very restricted way, in that potential adopters will have to send not only their completed perfect match from but videos or photos of their home and grant the branch permission to view their home on google’s street view.

This will protect our volunteers and adopters alike as our adoption process ideally involved face to face handovers and home visiting.

But, please note that the private boarding cattery is open by appointment only once your perfect match form and photos have been received.
