Roly the Rottweiler came to the branch having been starved in his previous home. Despite this ill treatment and neglect he is a very affectionate boy who loves people of all ages. He gets on well with other dogs he meets and is a typical adolescent, of approximately 11 months of age, who is full of beans and very bouncy.
We are looking for a family who have experience of his breed or other large dogs such as Dobermans or Boxers.
If you have time and patience and are prepared to take him to training classes so that he becomes the wonderful companion and family dog he is meant to become we’d love to hear from you.
If you would like to learn more about Roly please ring Pat on 07811404346
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 12 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.

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.
