We are always looking for people who have experience with dogs and can provide a temporary home.
We cover the costs of food and any veterinary care that is needed. All we ask is that you provide a safe, understanding environment for a dog to recuperate in.
Fostering is a very rewarding experience. If you think it is something you would be interested in, we would love to hear from you!
Before you fill out the form below, please take time, as a family, to consider the following.
When a dog comes into your home and life it may (and very often does) take time for it to settle. We need to know ahead of any foster placement what situation or behaviours you (or anyone in your family) will not be able to deal with.
Please note that we will be able to support you through any difficulties if we are made aware as soon as they happen, however we need you to consider up-front anything you will not be able to deal with. Are all family members equally committed to fostering a dog?
Before applying, please work through the following requirements checklist:
- Do you have your own transportation? This is essential for vet runs, meet & greets with potential adopters, meetings, etc. Our HQ postcode is CH7 4EY, this is where all meetings happen.
- Do you have a secure garden?
- Do you live in a flat (often with close neighbours & stairs)? This is unlikely to work for dogs in foster.
- Do you have dog experience? This is essential.
- If there are children in the house, they must be older and experienced with dogs.
- Do you have cats or small furries in your home? Our dogs can't be fostered with these.
- We cannot foster into homes with pregnant women, as the faeces may pose a risk plus the dog may jump up.
- Do you have other dogs in the house? They must be sociable with unfamiliar dogs, able to be separated off (if necessary) and must be neutered (unless a specific medical reason prevents this).
