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

Milly Meet our Milly who is looking for a new family.   Very sadly her previous owner has died leaving her alone, she was rescued by one of our RSPCA inspectors and has now come to the branch to find her forever home.

Milly is a middle aged girl of about 8 or 9 years of age.   Her coat was very matted and she had to have a rather close shave.    Although she is quite a small dog probably about the size of a cockerpoo, she is very strong on the lead and will need time to learn how to walk nicely by your side.

As a result we are looking for an active home for little Milly where there is someone at home most of the time.

If you would like to find out more about Milly and perhaps arrange to meet her please ring Pat on 07811404346

Ben Meet Ben, who is an older gentleman of 11.  Very sadly his old owner has died leaving Ben alone now.  We are  looking for an adult only home for Ben as he hasn’t lived with young children.

His kennel staff say he is a lovely friendly little dog, who enjoys his walks, although he will need to have his exercise increased gradually.

If you could offer Ben  carimg new home we’d love to hear from you.
