Last year we got a kitten from the shelter. He is now 1yr old,he is a gem. We have 2 other cats & they get along great. The staff were very considerate & very helpful. The only down side is the cost of adopting a cat, that is because they all cost the same. The costing should be changed, If the cat needs neutering & vaccinations, then the cost of the animal should be cheaper. We would have adopted another cat that we saw at the time we got the kitten,The only thing that stopped us was the... (read more)

Recently our dog bobby a litte jack russell had to be taken here. He is such a lovely dog but scared of big men and traffic. We got him from a woman and wasnt told the problems. They didnt bother us. We had him for a month and my step dad decided we couldnt keep him. He was taken to Tameside animal centre. They made such a fuss of him. I was so worried that he would think hes done something wrong when he is the loveliest dog you could ever meet. We sent him with all his belongings such as... (read more)

We lost our beautiful cat last year that we rehomed from the tameside animal rescue centre about 6 years ago so in January we decided it was the right time to get another cat. Was really impressed again with the staff, felt no pressure to rush and we picked a beautiful female kitten who was going the next day to be sprayed. We felt really bad at having to leave for a night so if we were to go again we wouldn't go on a Monday. We were so impressed we told everyone, my brother and sister in... (read more)

Tameside Animal Shelter is a great little rescue. The volunteers do a fantastic job and without them there would be nowhere for the homeless animals of Hyde to go. I genuinely admire people who give up their spare time and money to help others - keep up the good work guys!

I visited this sanctuary a few months ago to make a donation of some items and look around. I was quite concerned as in the indoor kitten area, it was filthy and stank of urine and faeces. The pens the cats were kept in did not look clean at all. Out doors was no better, then pens the dogs were in were covered with faeces of which the dogs were treading all over the show. Some of the adult indoor cats had faeces matted in their fur, and one of the outdoor older dogs was badly matted. The... (read more)

We got a little kitten from there, was told he was 12 weeks - not a chance he was. We were told he had a bit of an upset tummy but apart from that was well and healthy. He died in my arms 7 days after bringing him home. We took him to the vets the night before he died as it was clear he was very poorly. The vet told us the kitten was barely 8 weeks and he is fed up of telling Tameside Animal Shelter to stop selling such young kittens, their being weaned too young and... (read more)

I have recently (December 2009) adopted a dog from Tameside Animal Shelter (TAS). At all times the staff were considerate and helpful, their main interest being the welfare of the animal. Anyone who criticises this establishment ought to think very carefully about why it is there and how it manages to do what it does. It does not receive any funding from government, local or national and is entirely reliant on the goodwill of its patrons.

I am surprised by the couple of bad comments about the shelter, though unfortunately this does happen sometimes.
My experience is that without the care and attention from the staff, where would these poor animals be? I find the cats are kept in very clean conditions. Who wouldn't like them all to be in upper class luxury, but this is not possible.
I try to take the cats some food and cat litter when I am able, and provide something for the fair.
I applaud these people who give up their... (read more)

Tameside Animal Shelter meets my expectations, but can improve on some points in my opinion. I suggest visiting the shelter, but remember to have some other choices of shelters to adopt your animal from, just to be on the safe side.

Overall a brilliant place to adopt a pet! (read more)
