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


Samson – foster home found

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off

bty Samson is a smallish 8 year old Staffordshire Bull cross.   He has come into our care through no fault of his own.   He is a gentle older boy, who so far has been good with other dogs and people.   He is not enjoying his life in kennels as he has been in another centre since February

Just William – Reserved

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
bty William is just over a year old and is still very much a puppy who needs to get out and about, have new experiences and meet new people and animals.  He loves people of all ages, although we would not rehome him to a family with small children under 12 years of age simply due to his size and strength.

As a typical German Shepherd, he needs to work his brain as well as his body, and with the right people in his life he will soon become a shining example of his breed.  William is very clever and will quickly become top of his class at his training school.

Ideally, his adopters should have experience of German Shepherds or similar working breeds.

henryacapooch1_ Alfie is still only a baby he has been estimated as under 1 year old.  He is currently in a foster home where they cannot believe just what a big soft thing he is.  His fosterers have described him as a lovely gentleman, but he does snore and drools.  Alfie is house trained and is currently being walked on a head collar which stops him from pulling.  When he sees another dog he does get excited and forgets how big he is so he does need some training classes, but he is very clever and does soon learn.

Alfie needs someone who is used to big dogs, and is prepared to carry on with his training.  He is just a big cuddly bear who needs a family who will show him plenty of love and he will certainly give lots back.

raystaffy2 We have let Ray’s current owner tell you all about him and why he is looking for a new home.

Ray is around 4-5 years old and is probably a Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross. He weights around 19.5Kg and is an active healthy dog who is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date with vaccinations. He enjoys the company of other dogs, chasing balls and long walks.  He is loving and positively enjoys being with humans. He is also good with children of all ages and would make a good family pet. Ray can suffer from separation anxiety but with the right environment and some work he is capable of spending periods alone. He is available for rehoming following the death of his main owner.  

In September 2015 my wife and I came across Ray at the Cheshire Dogs Home and we decided to offer him a home. At that time my wife was looking for a replacement for our previous dog who had died at the age of 14+ in 2012. She also suffered from some serious back problems which meant that she wanted to have a good reason to get up and about and Ray certainly provided that. Unfortunately in early 2016 she was diagnosed with bladder cancer and she died in March this year, since the death of my wife Ray has suffered with separation anxiety so he is now desperate to enjoy that commitment he once had with someone new”.
