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 £120 for an adult dog or £150 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 £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

Olive – Reserved

Posted in Adopt a Dog | Comments Off
olive-2-crossbreed-wilms This is Olive, a lovely black and white, large crossbreed.   She has a wonderful temperament and was very gentle with her carers even when she had her litter of puppies who have all gone to their new homes.

Because Olive is such a big girl, despite being about 5 years of age, she can be a bouncy and loves to jump up at her carers, we are looking for an adult only family or one with with children over 12 years of age.

To find out more about Olive and perhaps arrange to meet her please ring Pat on 07811404346

Please note that due to Covid-19 restrictions we are only able to rehome to families within reasonable traveling distance of Greater Manchester.

 

 

Daphne

Daphne Meet Daphne, who is a six year old beagle.    She is typical of her breed and will need a beagle or other scent hound experienced family who are prepared to put lots of time into this lovely girl. But please be aware that she will need people who are firm with her and not be put off because she wants her own way.

We are looking for a family where she will be an only dog, not because she isn’t dog friendly when out on her walks, but because she will need be the centre of her family’s attention for a while.

If you are interested in finding out more about Daphne please ring Pat one of our rehoming coordinators on 07811404346,   Then if you would still like to meet her send an email for our perfect match form which should be returned along with permission for the branch to view your home on Google maps and a couple of photos of your ground floor and garden as we can no longer arrange for your local branch to undertake a pre-adoption home visit.
