Animal Fosterers Urgently Needed

Posted in Branch News and Updates | Comments Off


The branch urgently needs a local person/people who are able to foster kittens or puppies in their homes, often at short notice. We also need fosterers able to take in adult dogs who aren’t coping well in kennels.

More often than not, the temporary home is needed for a single puppy or kitten who is far too young to stay in kennels while he/she awaits a new home. Sometimes a young animal might be recovering from an illness so will need special round the clock care. From time to time we may even have a litter of puppies or kittens to find foster care for.

If we don’t have foster spaces we are unable to take in really young animals in need because they cannot go into boarding, so we are appealing for local people who have the space and availability to volunteer for this important role.

As an emergency fosterer you may be called upon to offer space in your home at short notice, you will be given as much information about your temporary guest as possible and full support is provided. Your own transport is not necessary as other volunteers will be able to transport the fostered animal to vet appointments and meetings with potential adopters. All you need is the space, patience, time and of course the ability to provide love and care to a young animal or adult who really needs it.

Even if you can only foster a single puppy, kitten, adult dog or cat and you would like to help and want to know more please get in touch as a matter of urgency.

We need your help – our funds are running low

Posted in Branch News and Updates | Comments Off

We always need help to raise funds.  As is the case with many small charities many of our fund raising events are organised and staffed by only a few of our members and we are desperately in need of more people who can spare 2 hours holding a can or selling logoed goods at our instore collections.

Your help at these events will mean that we can continue to ensure our dogs and cats are well-cared for whilst they are waiting for their forever new families.  Even if you cannot make the dates, or are unable to stand for long periods of time, but would like to personally help the animals in our care with a donation,  just click on the MyDonate link on the right to make a secure online donation by card or, if you have a mobile phone, you can now donate by text.  Alternatively, you can donate by cheque, made out to RSPCA Tameside and Glossop branch,  and sent to the branch c/o Volunteer Centre Tameside, 95/97 Penny Meadow, Ashton-under-Lyne OL6 6EP, where the kind people there, will ensure that your letter and donation reach the branch safely.

Please visit our Diary dates page for a schedule of these and further fundraising events.

Donate much needed food and equipment

Posted in Special Appeals | Comments Off

If you would prefer to donate food and other much needed items directly to the branch rather than cash donation, we are in need of the following:

  • Cat litter
  • Kitten food
  • Dog coats
  • Dog leads
  • Toys and various other comforts

Your gifts will benefit RSPCA animals who have suffered at the hands of their previous owners and are being rehabilitated by our volunteer dog walkers and cat socialisers.

Food, beds and cat litter etc will help to feed and provide warmth and comfort to those who are too young or sick to be rehomed from the cattery or kennels and are being cared for by fosterers in their own homes.

Our Amazon Wish List

We have an Amazon wish list containing all the items we (ideally) need which can be viewed here: www.amazon.co.uk – Wish List.

All you need to do is click ‘add to basket’ next to the item you would like to buy for us and then checkout in the usual way. All items will be delivered directly to us.

Arnie – Rehomed

Posted in Animals Rehomed | Comments Off

arnie6 Arnie has been with the branch since March this year and we’re all getting a little worried (including Arnie) that no-one will offer him a new home.     He came to us when he was 11 months old and is a Shar Pei cross, who was originally purchased as a pure bred Shar Pei from a local, well known puppy farm outlet.   He is quite a shy boy who, typical of his breed, can be a little aloof when he first meets new people and as a result whoever adopts him will need to be patient and allow him time to settle in with his new family and home.

Whilst he was growing up he missed out on meeting people and visiting new places and now needs to start to learn that there is a whole wide world out there  with exciting new places to investigate and enjoy.  His confidence has greatly improved whilst he’s been in our care.

Tiny – Rehomed

Posted in Animals Rehomed | Comments Off

tinysbthd Tiny is approximately 7 years old and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

Tiny was rehomed some time ago but came back to the branch as his previous adopters hadn’t really got the time anymore to give him the attention and exercise which this active little staffy needs.

His dog walkers say: “Tiny should really be called ‘Sunny’ due to his lovely nature. He was brought up with a young child and loves children and adults alike.  He OK with other dogs with careful introductions.  Tiny is quite happy to walk alongside his walkers and ignore dogs he passes, because he is so pleased to be out and about and enjoying life.  All in all Tiny is a great ambassador for his breed and would make an ideal family pet, as he is a very loving dog.”

Darcy Kitten – Reserved

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off
darcy-kitten Darcy is a 10 week old kitten who is looking for a home.  He was taken in by a kind neighbour when his family couldn’t manage such a young kitten along with their own human toddler.  Darcy is looking for home where there is someone around most of the time as he is still very much a baby who will need frequent feeds and rescued from any tricky situations a curious kitten can find himself in.

He is likely to be a semi longhaired boy and he will make a very affectionate addition to any family with children over 4.

Darcy is currently living with his rescuer so if you could offer him a home please ring the branch on 07954122481 and leave a voicemail please include a contact phone number or send an email to office@rspca-tameside-glossop.org.uk again leave a phone number so that one of our home visiting coordinators can ring you to arrange to meet him.

Tiddles

Posted in Adopt a Cat | Comments Off

tiddlesmummycat Tiddles is an adult cat who came to the branch with her kittens after being  abandoned by their original owners. She was taken to our Greater Manchester Animal Hospital where she was health checked.  She has been a amazing mum but has been over protective and didn’t like anyone approaching her kittens while they were so dependent on her.

She has obviously had a hard life as she is not trusting until she knows you mean her no harm.  As a result Tiddles will need a home with no other pets or young children and where she can be allowed to settle in her own time.

She can be seen at Bowler’s Cattery

Flower and Petal are 2 kittens who have come to our Stockport branch with mum from our Greater Manchester Animal Hospital when they were a couple of days old.  Mum struggled to raise her litter as she had very little milk.

These babies are approaching 8 weeks old but are still so tiny.  We are looking for home together for them where they will not be left alone for long hours and they will need frequent small meals and a lot of TLC.

Because they are so tiny they will have to be returned in a few weeks to be neutered, vaccinated, chipped etc.

They can be seen at Bowler’s Cattery
