RSPCA Tameside and Glossop Branch

There are approximately 160 Branches of the RSPCA and every Branch is slightly different from its neighbours. Branches operate their own animal welfare programmes, which run "in tandem" with the National Society. Each branch raises its own funds and manages its own affairs. The Tameside and Glossop Branch doesn't employ paid staff but raises money to fund the private boarding of animals brought in by RSPCA Inspectors until they can be rehomed and to help people living in our area and in financial need to access emergency veterinary treatment and neutering for their animals.


We cover a small corner of Derbyshire in addition to Greater Manchester and are able to rehome outside our area, although priority is given to those living in and around Greater Manchester. RSPCA Branches will home check for one another. However, anyone interested in adopting one of our animals must meet their new dog before taking them home.

We only accept dogs and other animals from RSPCA Inspectors and as a result many have been subjected to cruelty or neglect by their previous owners.

Our Branch Policies can be found HERE These in no way obviate the RSPCA National Society's rehoming policies which can be found HERE, along with advice on Rehoming a Rescued Dog

Although our branch has a non-destruction policy for dogs and other animals in our care, every year 1000s of dogs in this country are needlessly killed. In the US its estimated that for every human seven cats and dogs are born, its a very similar situation in this country, work it out for yourself there are just not enough homes. If more people neutered their dogs this national tragedy could be prevented.


Nationally, in one year - Over 1.4m phone calls, 183,000 rescues, 82,000 new homes. Only 328 inspectors.

To arrange to meet one of our dogs

Tel:07954 122 481 (24 hr ansaphone - calls are usually collected after 6pm and before 8am). To make an appointment to view leave your name and a contact phone number, or email us at office@rspca-tameside-glossop.org.uk

Please note that our dogs are in private boarding and/or foster homes you need to ring to make an appointment to meet the dog you are interested in.

Purdy
came to the branch to find her forever family via one of our Inspectors at the begining of the year. She is two and a half years of age and a typical, medium sized, lurcher of about 24 inches to her shoulder. Purdy definitely has greyhound or whippet in her make up but what else is anyone's guess.

Purdy is an excellent jumper and VERY fast so we think that she may enjoy agility. But she would need a confident, experienced agility home, as she does like to play with her doggy friends.

Please visit Kent greyhound rescue which has excellent advice for potential Lurcher owners.

She had never lived in house but she quickly became clean in her foster home, and is enjoying life and regaining her mischievous puppy hood. She has a happy, bouncy nature and loves to steal shoes etc. but doesn't object to them being taken from her as it's all just just a game to this funny little girl. Her new family should also be aware that she is a bit of a "counter surfer" so food items shouldn't be left out on the kitchen worktops.

Purdy is currently living with another dog and gets on well with him and is good with other dogs she meets of all sizes. As she is quite strong on her collar and lead she currently wears a dogmatic head collar.

Even though Purdy was a non-chaser in her previous home, we are looking for a cat and small animal free home and one with or without children over 8 years of age and where she won't be left alone for more than short time.

Sighthound experience would be an advantage.
