RSPCA Leeds & Wakefield - long term Staffies need homes!

Posted 21st September 2010


The RSPCA Leeds, Wakefield and District Branch (Registered charity no. 232223) provides a safe haven in which abused, neglected and abandoned animals can be rehabilitated before they are found a new home.


Last year the Branch rehomed 332 cats, 103 dogs and 51 rabbits, all of which were neutered, microchipped and health checked before adoption.


Like so many UK Rescues, the branch has some Staffies that have been waiting for loving homes of their own for quite a while.


If you or someone you know is looking for a staffie to join the family, please consider these lovely dogs and contact the branch.




Bruce, 4 year old brindle male

"Bruce is a lovely lad who has been with us much too long now. He is a typically excitable and giddy SBT boy, and a really cheeky chappie!


He loves to play with toys, and could give Rooney a run for his money with his ball. He can at times get a little overexcited, so although he has been good with all the children he has met, we would prefer him to go to a home with older children.


Bruce loves people but does not get along with other dogs, so would need to be the only pet in the house. He is very good at his basic commands but could do with a little training on his lead.


Bruce is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Bruce is at the Leeds, Wakefield and district RSPCA.Please call 07743 773871 for more info"




Jess, 10 year old white and black female SBT

"Jess is a very loving older SBT girl. She is ten years old and has spent most of the last two years in and out of kennels. This poor girl is ever so sweet and affectionate, she loves a fuss and a cuddle. She has been good with all the children she has met, and enjoys lazing the day away on her bed.


She walks well on her lead and enjoys getting out and about for a walk, but she does not get on with other dogs so would need to be the only pet in the house, and would need to be walked on a lead.


Jess is neutered, Vaccinated, and Microchipped, she is with the Leeds Wakefield and district branch of the RSPCA. For more info call 07743 773871"




Bonnie, 1 year old brindle SBT cross

"Bonnie is only a year old and has had an appalling start in life. She was found living in a cellar with the only daylight coming from a golf ball sized hole in the wall.


She loves a fuss and is ever so friendly, and is very lively and excitable as you'd expect given her age. She is quite vocal with other dogs, so would need to be an only pet, but hopefully with some time and training this should improve. With a little training and TLC this girl will make an amazing pet.


Bonnie is with the RSPCA Leeds, Wakefield and district branch, for more info please call 07743 773871"




Cassie, 8 year old black SBT

"Cassie is a sweet cuddle monster of a staffy, who has been with us some time now. Sadly due to an infection in the bone, she had to have one of her hind legs amputated, but she has recovered brilliantly from this and manages to get around completely fine as if nothing ever happened!


She is very affectionate and loves to be stroked, and is getting quite fed up with kennel life. She would love a home to call her own where she can lounge about on her bed or snuggle up with you to watch TV. She really enjoys her walks, but does need to be kept on a lead as she does not get along with other dogs.


Cassie is neutered, vaccinated and Microchipped. She is with the RSPCA Leeds, Wakefield and district branch, call 07743 773871 for more info."




"If you see an animal which you’d like to give a new home please ring the adoption hotline (for dogs ring 07743 773871) to book an appointment to view the animal.


All potential adopters will be subject to a home visit to discuss the needs of the animal they are hoping to adopt.


An adoption fee will be charged for all animals rehomed as a contribution towards the costs incurred by the Branch in rehabilitating, neutering, microchipping, health checking and boarding the animal.  Such adoption fees only go a small way towards covering the costs incurred by the Branch.


The Branch can also help local pet owners on low incomes by subsidising the cost of neutering and veterinary treatment for those in receipt of qualifying benefits.


Last year the Branch subsidised the costs of neutering 26 animals and helped fund veterinary treatment for a further 53 animals.


For more information about subsidised neutering and veterinary treatment please contact the Branch office on 01924 299170 or by email


Without the support and generosity of people in Leeds, Wakefield and the surrounding area the Branch would be unable to continue with this worthwhile work."
