Drake – moved to another branch

Posted in Branch News and Updates | Comments Off

bty Drake is a 3 year old Crossbreed and he has now moved to another branch to try to find his perfect family in another part of the country.   This young man just wants to be with someone.   He needs a home where he is going to get lots of walks, and someone who is prepared to carry on with his training.   He does pull on the lead but this is getting better.  Drake ideally needs an adult only house

Here are a few photos of the dogs and their families who took part in our fun dog show held in Stamford Park.

Blue now at Oldham RSPCA

Posted in Branch News and Updates | Comments Off
Monty 2 Blue is a lovely, bouncy German Shepherd cross of about 6 months of age.   He has come to the branch to find a new home via one of our RSPCA inspectors.  Blue is currently in a foster home and he does need another dog that is going to teach him manners.   Monty needs an ADULT ONLY HOME

Blue had never met any other dogs before going to the fosterers as he just lived in a back yard, and although he loves people he does like his own way.   He will need one to one attention at first although he is a bright boy who will enjoy going to doggy training school in the future.  In fact this will be essential as he will need to be taught what is acceptable and what is not.  He will need someone who has experience of large breed puppies and who is willing to put in the time needed to ensure that this handsome boy becomes a well socialised and happy member of society.

His adopters should be aware that he will soon cover your carpets and clothes in white hair as he will change his coat spring and autumn and shed some hairs all year round.  So lots of brushes and combs will be needed as regular grooming will be essential.

For further information please ring Oldham RSPCA on 0161 624 4725

Toby – Rehomed

Posted in Animals Rehomed, Branch News and Updates | Comments Off

toby-cat Toby, a domestic short haired kitty who is thought to be about 3 years of age, came to the branch from one of our local veterinary surgeons.  He was found as an injured stray by a kind lady who thought he had badly injured his leg and took him to the surgery to be scanned for a microchip and his leg repaired.

However, following examination, it was found that he has a club foot and will always limp and be unable to climb or escape from dangerous situations easily.  He will be fine as an indoor cat or one which is allowed into a secure garden for a short while.

He is now changing every day.  At first he hid away from his fosterer for a few days and now he is coming out of his shell and becoming more confident. He has settled down and is becoming a loving little cat who will make a great addition to any family.

He has now recovered from his operation and has moved into Bowler’s Cattery where he will be able to meet more potential adopters.

He will receive his second vaccinations on Wednesday 11th April and will then go to the Bowler’s cattery where he can be seen by more people and perhaps someone will offer him a loving home.
