Foster a Dog

Foster a Dog

Could you foster a dog and be a step in the dogs journey to their forever home?

Fostering a dog is extremely rewarding and allows us to assess the dog in a home environment before placing them with their best matched forever home.

We have several dogs in kennels. Not only does that cost the rescue money but it also means the dogs are still not in a loving home. Providing a foster home will allow a dog to adjust to living a home before it is placed in it’s forever home.

Fostering is temporary but we also cannot guarantee how long the dog will be in your care in foster before moving to its forever home. Some of our dogs find their forever homes within a few months, but for some this could be longer based on their specific needs, the dog’s physical health and history.

Fostering can seem like the dog is moved on again and people worry that the dog will feel like they’ve been abandoned again. It can also be hard for Fosterers to say goodbye to their foster dog that they have cared for and loved. But fostering gives a dog a great head start and prepares them for a new life in a permanent home, with the chance of success being far greater.

To be a fosterer ideally you will have:

  • A secure garden with 6 foot fencing
  • Whether you have cats will depend on the dog you are looking to foster. Some dogs we have are ok to live with cats.
  • No children under 12
  • Whether you have dogs or not and their gender will depend on the dog that is needing to be fostered. Some dogs need the company of other dogs, some don’t get on with other dogs
  • Time available to settle the dog and assess it
