Can you help with fostering a dog?
Our doggy foster carers are an important aspect of the way we manage our rescue activities and it is these volunteers which allow us to provide a flexible and cost effective method of looking after dogs which are waiting to be found a new permanent home.
By placing dogs with foster homes, rather than being in kennels, we believe that there is less stress for the rescued dog who is kept in an environment in which they can be assessed and nurtured before being found their new home. Often our carers will have their own dogs and sharing a home with other dogs is a good way of re-acclimatising some of our rescues back into that environment.
The sort of things we would be looking for in prospective foster homes are very similar to the criteria you may have read on the 'considering adopting' page;
We would like to stress that these are not defined yes/no criteria for assessing a prospective foster home, however, these are here as a guide for you in the sort of considerations we would have.
Unfortunately, we cannot pay you for being a foster carer, however, we would provide you with a daily allowance to cover food and other costs, and would take care of any out of pocket expenses related to the care of the dog.
If you feel you would like to help us by becoming one of our foster homes then in the first instance please contact one of our Welfare Wardens (their numbers are on the contact page) and we would be most happy to discuss it with you.
