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

bty Lola is a Mastiff type female dog approximately 2 years old.  Sadly, she has had quite a lot of puppies in her short life so it is now time for Lola to start to live life for herself.

She is very friendly girl who just loves having her belly tickled.   We think that Lola has possibly not seen much of the world, so her new family needs to understand that she needs time a patience for her to get used to everything.

Lola is a thick set lady but with small legs and she does have some pulling power. However with a two point harness and enrollment at her adopters’ local training school we feel that this will be manageable.

We are looking for an experienced large dog family for Lola and an adult only home or one with children over 12 years of age simply due to her size.

rupertmastiff4 Rupert is  2 year old Mastiff cross weighing in at 38kg so he is not small.  This young man has spent quite a lot of his time on his own, and now needs a family who are going to show him that there is a lot of life to live.

Rupert currently in foster care on a farm and this is what his foster family have to say about him.

“Do not judge a book by its cover!!
This is one big soft lump. He does not have a bad bone in his body. He loves everything. Rupert is a big lovable bear.  BUT -

  • His size has made finding him a family hard
  • Rupert did have a very bad habit of pulling when on a lead but, thanks to his new fan-dangled harness, this is a problem of the past.
  • Poor Rupert has been with us for months and desperately needs his own family. (He’s watched all the other dogs get chosen and leave. He can’t understand why he never gets picked)
  • Rupert needs a family with older children ( due to his size)
  • A family that have a warm house ( he likes to be warm)
  • A family that don’t mind loud snoring ( it’s bad!!)
  • A family with a large sofa! ( he likes to be comfy)
  • A family that likes slobbery kisses ( he’s very affectionate)”

Rupert is still only young and has endless amounts of love to give.  He adores attention and fuss he is desperate for the right family too come along and let him join their family

murphylablinda4_ Murphy is a 14 month old yellow Labrador.  This young man is a lovely nature but in desperate need of some training, he is extremely strong and needs someone who knows the breed and is prepared to put in the training.   Murphy has now been neutered but he is still very lively and when he came into us he just wanted to say hello to everyone very amourously.   We would not rehome Murphy with anyone with young children because he will knock them over

ollie This is Ollie who is a terrier cross, and just 6 months old.

His foster carer says “Ollie is absolutely gorgeous.  He loves fuss and attention and is a very quick learner.  But, adopters need to understand that he is only a pup so he’s full of energy!

Unfortunately, Ollie hasn’t had the best environment to live in up until now and this means his training has had to be started from scratch.

Anyone adopting Ollie into their family will be blessed with a cheeky chap who just makes you smile. There’s nothing to not like about him”.

If you would like to meet Ollie please send us an email and we will send you our perfect match form by return.   Or, leave your email or home address including Ollie’s name on our answerphone – 07954122481

bty Drake is a 2 year old Crossbreed.   This young man just wants to be with someone.   He likes to lean on you whilst out for a walk.   He does pull on the lead so does still need some training, but he seems to get on well with other dogs

Lily and Luna

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.  She has to have medication which is quite expensive.

Her old owner is prepared to pay for the medication for a year for her.  Luna is just 2 years old and is also very affectionate and a typical Chihuahua. They are to be rehomed together and will make fantastic additions to any family.

For further information on this lovely pair please ring 07811404346

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

Ray is currently in a foster home and living with 3 other dogs.  He gets on with them all really well, he has really settled in.

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 has suffered from separation anxiety but whilst he has been in his foster home he is doing really well and is not bothered by his human friends going out.
