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 (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.

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/

Lexi

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
lexistaffy1 Lexi is a 1 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Sadly the family who had reserved her have decided to look for a dog nearer to their home so we are urgently seeking a foster home over Christmas period or a forever home for this young lady. Her current fosterer is going away over the holiday period but cannot praise her enough.   When out for a walk she can be strong on her lead but she can be let off and has good recall and loves to play with her ball.   Lexi loves people and has met the fosterer’s grandchildren and enjoyed playing with them.  

Lexi has not had a good start in life so is really enjoying being loved and having some attention so for that reason we would like her to be the only dog in the house.  She is house trained

cocowilmslow1 Coco is a approx 6 year old Crossbreed.  This young lady is feeling a little timid at the moment so her picture does not do her justice, but loves to be with people and is good with other dogs.   She has come into our care because her owner is now working long hours.  Coco is melting many hearts at the kennels with her good nature.

Clyde

clydewilmslow Clyde is approx 11 years old Yorkie cross.  This elderly gentleman has come into our care due to his owner’s ill health, and he came in with Ollie.   Even though he has lived with another dog he can be a bit grumpy with them when he meets them outside.   Clyde is still quite an active dog and as you can see from the picture he loves people, but because of his age we would not rehome him with young children.

paris-chi Paris is a 5 year old, long haired Chihuahua who has come to the branch to find a caring new home because of her previous family’s ill-health.   She is quite a shy girl who will need her adopters to allow her to settle into her new home and give her time to become more confident.  Paris is not looking her best because she has been to the hairdressers and had her long flowing locks cut off but luckily they will soon grow back.

Paris will make a lovely companion for a family with older teenage children or an adult only home.

junior-chi-2 Junior who is an 8 year old, long haired Chihuahua has come to the branch to find a caring new home along with Cheeco and Paris, because of their previous family’s ill-health.   He is not looking his best because he has had his beautiful long coat trimmed but this will soon grow back.

He will make a lovely companion for a family with older teenage children or an adult only home.  At 8 years of age little Junior could give his new people many more years of companionship.

Toto – Reserved

toto-sbt-2 Toto is a lovely small 6 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier.  She gets so excited to meet new people that she wouldn’t stay still for long enough to have her photos taken and had to be held in her dog walker’s arms.  Toto is good with other dogs and walks extremely well on her lead.   She is house trained and loves a cuddle

Her staff at the kennels say she is full of life and just loves people of all ages but because she is so bouncy we are looking for an adult only home or a family with children 10 and over.
