We are sorry to disappoint people who have expressed an interest and invite everyone to come to our James Bond Christmas Ball on 14th December same time and venue as the cancelled Halloween Party.
One of the RSPCA’s Inspectors brought Bert, who is about 12 years of age, to the branch to find the urgent care he desperately needed. One of our brilliant, volunteer foster families agreed to take him into their home to try their very best to help him recover from his appalling neglect.
This lovely boy was quite literally a walking skeleton when he arrived, with pressure sores from lying on concrete, and was in a collapsed state finding it very difficult to even stand up to eat and drink………..but just look at him now!
He is still under the care of one of our local veterinary practices and, now he has put on enough weight, he will have a much needed dental operation. Until the huge build up of plaque is removed we won’t know just how many teeth will have to be extracted.
Handsome Bert will be staying with his foster carers forever as they have asked to adopt him officially once he has recovered from operation.
If you could foster for the branch and help animals like Bert to recover from their previous neglect please contact us. You should live in the branch area so that you will have full support.
We are urgently seeking a foster carer for Bobbie, a little stray cat with a severe ear infection which will need nursing care once his ear has been operated on. Bobbie will need ear drops twice a day and must wear a cone collar to prevent him scratching the stitches and the open wound. If you could help and live within easy travelling distance of Mossley where the vet who will be overseeing his treatment is based we’d love to hear from you.
He will need his cone for at least 10 days and probably anaesthetising to have his stitches removed. Following a successful outcome of this procedure he will then have to have his teeth cleaned and probably several removed. So this will be at least a couple of months foster placement.
All his food, cat litter, bedding and a cage if needed will be provided by the branch.
Dinner Jackets and elegant gowns, Ski wear and Saris, Pussy Bow Blouses and Tweed Skirts, Lounge Suits and Narrow Ties. Anything goes.
The Ball with be held at Oaklands Hall, in Hyde, with excellent food and great DJs. If you are planni

Thank you to all those special family dogs who brought their humans along to our fun show. We hope that everyone enjoyed the day as much as we did, meeting all the much loved and well cared for dogs who came along to help those less fortunate dogs who have been badly treated or neglected and now have a chance to find caring and loving families of their own.
A total of £244.30 was raised on the day – £220 entry fees plus £24.30 in donations.
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

This little 15 month old cat has gone missing from his Droylsden address. He is neutered and is marked with stripes and spots and microchipped. His family is desperate to find him as he has been missing 11th July 2018 . He doesn’t know the area well as this was only the second time he has ventured outdoors.
Please help his family to find him by checking your outbuildings and under bushes in your gardens.
If you find him or have any news please ring his worried family on 07494513755.

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.
