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.

Chance is approx 4 years old, he is a terrier cross. This young man did not have a good start to life he was found wandering the streets with a bad skin condition and because it had not been treated he had open bleeding wounds and very little fur all over his body. Kindly a lady took him in two years ago and he was fine with her dogs at first but these last six months the lady’s older dog has taken a dislike to Chance so we have been asked to see if we can find him a new home. This is what the lady has to say about him.

“Chance has survived against the odds hence his name, we felt he deserved a 2nd chance. I have 2 other dogs and he is by far the most cuddliest and loving dog of them all. He wasn’t always like this, it has been a long road to recovery, so that is why we are asking anyone that is interested in him they will have to come and view him a couple of times. His physical scars may have healed but because of his traumatic past we feel he still has a few issues. He is a very clever dog and responds well to training but does need more. One of his issues is when out for a walk he barks at other dogs. Chance, with some time and patience, will make a loyal and loving companion”.

Giggs is a 6 year old Jack Russell rough coated. This young man is a typical Jack Russell full of spirit and knows his own mind. We would not rehome Giggs with children under 14 due to his lack of training. He needs an owner who knows and understands the breed

Peg is a 5 month old, small lurcher. She is smooth haired, with a very dark brown almost black shiny coat with white toes and feet. She came to the branch via one of our inspectors and is currently living in a foster home with another dog. She is very people friendly, but is warning other dogs off at the moment (probably due to her recent op and still feeling a bit sore).

She walks well on her lead and is beginning to remember her house training.

We are looking for an adult only home or one with children over 8 years of age for Peg.

Peg will make a great addition to any family, but potential adopters will need to be aware that she will need lots of TLC as she is quite underweight at the moment, but care must be taken not to overcompensate and feed too much so that she becomes too plump.

Paddy is an older American Bulldog, who is neutered and up to date with vaccinations. He is a plodder and a gentle boy who is looking for a retirement home. He is good with people and kids although we would not rehome him with young children as we think he is too old for young children due to his size.

Children over 8 yrs old will be ok. He has played with a friend’s female dogs and he has not reacted to any dog while out. In fact at the vets no matter how other dogs carried on he just ignored them. He has been introduced him to various dogs on the street but he just sniffs them. He is 8/9 yrs old. He does not pull on the lead and walks perfectly, just a plodder. He is in foster at present and they say he's adorable but, because of a change in their circumstances they can't keep him.
