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 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 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

Breeze is about 3 years old and a lurcher who has come into branch care via one of our RSPCA Inspectors.
She is a lovely, friendly girl who was very frightened of some men when she first came but having gained in confidence is getting much better when she meets them in the street or the park.
Sadly, Breeze’s left eye had been damaged, probably some time ago and following an eye scan by one of our local vets was found have a damaged retina and a developing cataract. Follow up x-rays of two suspicious lumps discovered that she had 5 pellets embedded throughout her body including one behind her eye. Our vets are confident that this wasn’t an accidental shooting because of the spread from her head to her tail.
Breeze suffers from severe separation anxiety which is getting a bit better in her foster home but she will need a family where there is someone around all the time and where a man in the house is prepared to have lots of patience with her until she realises that she is safe.
Breeze demonstrating her recall…. as long as treats are involved.
Breeze’s fosterer tells us that she is not cat or small animal safe and can be “iffy” with some small dogs, but her fosterers are working with her on this and her adopters will need to continue the training. Luckily, unlike some lurchers she is food orientated. She is currently walked in a collar and harness on most outings. She can travel by car or bus but hasn’t been taken on a train yet.
Meet Jessie, who came to the branch to find a new home via one of our inspectors. Her kennel staff say she is a total poppet. At only 9 months of age she will make a lovely addition to any family who know that lurchers aren’t the type of dog to stick by your leg on a walk.
She gets on well with other dogs so with careful introductions would be happy to join another sighthound’s family.
We are looking for home where any children are over 8 years of age as she could easily knock little ones over as she loves to zoom around and doesn’t always look where she’s going.
If you need further information and would like to meet our beautiful Jessie please ring please ring 07811 404346
Ace is 11 months old and this very handsome boy is looking for a family who understands that he is still and pup and still doing puppy things. He is a lovely affectionate boy who just wants to show you how much he likes you, but at the moment because he is only young he is trying to push the boundries, so he does need someone who is willing to put a lot of hard work into him. We would not rehome him with young children because he does still need training and he could knock a little one over. Fine around other dogs. Knows basic commands Can be giddy but he’s only a puppy. He is strong and does have more growing and filling out to do so he does need someone used to larger dogs. Not a first time owner.
For further enquiries and viewing please ring 07811 404346
Dexter is approx 5 years old he is a Malinois (Belgian Shepherd). Dexter is not a big dog, but his heart certainly is. He is very friendly and loves all people and whilst out on a walk he has been very good with other dogs, but we do think to start with he would be better as an only dog. Dexter is not coping very well in kennels at the moment, he is doing a lot of pacing.

The branch will not rehome RSPCA dogs as guard dogs, thieves these days won’t hesitate to hurt a dog – please get a good burglar alarm instead.
Also, we will not allow our dogs to go to homes where they will live outside, as there is nothing so upsetting than to see a dog without human interaction, spending their days on the end of a chain or in a lonely kennel.
Unfortunately the branch cannot accept Staffordshire Bull terriers and their crosses directly from members of the public, only via RSPCA inspectors.
