Fostering requires looking after a dog as if it were your own, whilst trying not to fall in love with it, for as long as it takes to find a home. This can be a few days or a few weeks. Please think carefully before volunteering to become a fosterer, it’s hard giving them up. We have thorough assessments of the dogs before coming into the rescue, and match them with the correct foster family. This is decided totally by the nature and behaviour of the dog, and the foster family’s experience.
Making sure the right dog goes into the right home. We don’t just throw you in. You will be shadowed by another home checker with experience or the coordinator. If you would like to help in your area please fill in an application form to help and we will get a coordinator to contact you. Please be patient we are building up coordinators gradually and may not have one available at first, but someone will contact you.
We are always on the lookout for fundraisers to help raise funds for the rescue. This goes towards vet fees, transport, and various other expenses the rescue pays. Maybe you could help at a local event or organise your own. Maybe you have craft skills and can make items to sell to raise funds. Or even in your spare time at home send some emails asking for donations for raffles, auctions etc. If you would like to help with fundraising, however small or large, please fill in an application form.
