This is Gary who is 7 years of age and a very gentle and friendly, rough coated lurcher. He enjoys a fuss from his kennel staff and seems fine with other dogs he meets.
Sadly, Gary bears the scars of his previous working life around his face and has a black patch of skin on his underside due, our vets suspect, to having to lie on hard ground with no bedding in all weathers. As you can guess he is now looking for a loving and caring family with a sofa or two to lounge his days away and a comfy warm bed to sleep in.
Because of his background Gary cannot be rehomed to families who have cats or other small furry animals.

Dog Adoption FAQs
- Can I come and visit the dogs? We don’t have a ‘walk around’ centre so you will need to call or email us to let us know which dog you are interested in. Find the contact details for adoption on the right of this page.
- I’ve seen the dog I want, what next? Have a read of our adoption process for useful information and to make sure adopting a branch animal is right for you. Then get in touch to arrange to meet the dog you are interested in
- What is the adoption fee? The cost for adoption is from £150 for adult dogs and from £275 for puppies under 6 months of age, see the table above for what this includes.
- Where do you keep the dogs in branch care? Some dogs are fostered in various homes around Tameside and Glossop and others are in private boarding kennels.
- Can I make a financial donation to help branch dogs? Yes, you can donate directly to the branch by cheque or postal order, please send an email and we will gladly send you the correct address to send this type of donation to, or by cash at one of our collection days.
Good to know…
The branch will not rehome RSPCA dogs as guard dogs, thieves these days won’t hesitate to hurt a dog – please get a good burglar alarm instead.
Also, we will not allow our dogs to go to homes where they will live outside, as there is nothing so upsetting than to see a dog without human interaction, spending their days on the end of a chain or in a lonely kennel.
Unfortunately the branch cannot accept Staffordshire Bull terriers and their crosses directly from members of the public, only via RSPCA inspectors.
