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.

Brian
is approximately 4 years old and a Mastiff cross. He came into our care through no fault of his own.

Sadly he has not had a good life so far, he has yellow staining on most of his body where he has been lying in his own urine and he is also very thin. Brian just loves people but can be a bit “barky” with other dogs and does pull on the lead.

He has now been fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered. We would not rehome him with young children simply because when he does put his weight back on he will be a large breed dog who could easily knock little ones over.

REHOMED

Tina
is a Lurcher approx 18 months old, this lovable young lady just wants loads of cuddles. But she came into our care via an Inspector, so we would not rehome her with small furries. We have had to remove some of Tina tail due to an injury that was not healing, but it does not stop her from wagging it when she sees you
