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 £150 for an adult dog or £275 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 £400 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

Milo – springer cross

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
milo-springer-x-lab-1 Milo is a springer spaniel crossbreed of about 4 or 5 years of age.   He is about the size of a springer spaniel although he may have some Labrador in his mix.   He loves people but is wary of other dogs so we are looking for home where he will be an only dog in the family.

Sadly, we think that poor Milo has not been socialised as a youngster and possibly kept in a confined space as he has marks on his muzzle and front feet.   He will need an experienced family who are confident with dogs who need to gain in confidence with other dogs they meet.

His new family must be prepared to take him to training classes where he will meet other dogs in a controlled setting.   Time and patience will probably be all that is needed for this boy to blossom in the wonderful family dog he was meant to be.

If you would like to learn more about Milo and his needs please ring Pat on 07811404346

Clyde – Old Frenchie

clyde-frenchie-old-boy This is Clyde, a French Bulldog,  who has come to the branch to find a caring retirement home.   As an older boy he hasn’t many teeth, is a little short sighted and may be almost deaf.

As you may be able to guess he will need an understanding home as an only dog.   A quiet life is all that this little dog needs now.

If you would like to learn more about Clyde and his needs please ring Pat on 07811404346

Rosie

rosie-shihtzu-x-yorkie This is Rosie.   She is a poppet.  Little Rosie loves people and gets on well with other dogs.   Although she is 10 years old she is still very lively and would love going on walks every day.

She does suffer from separation anxiety so we would like her to be in a home with another friendly dog as she does need company and all the time.

If you would like to learn more about Rosie please ring Pat on 07811404346
