Ever thought about becoming a foster home?
Think that you may not be suitable, think again!
Regardless of your work/home/life situation, our dogs need your love and a place to sleep for a while until they find their forever home.
When you foster you are in fact helping to save not one life but two, as you allow another dog to be saved due to freeing up a space at the rescue.
We have an amazing team of foster homes in the UK – all with different lifestyles, work commitments and home situations.
Fostering is a huge part of what I do, and I have an amazing team in the UK, we are always looking for more likeminded people to join the team, however, it is not for everyone. I’m sure some people want to foster for the glory, the look at me, aren’t I amazing saving the little doggy.
If this is you, and you want to foster for the pats on the back, and the selfies, then please keep walking. You are there to help my dog on its journey. None of this is about you, it is all about them. I have got that dog so far, and now it needs help to learn the correct skills, and behaviour to find a home.
Fostering also means I have spaces in the kennels, meaning that more lives are saved. My foster mums are amazing people, they open their homes, lives, and hearts to my dogs. They love them as if they were their own, but also know they are there for a reason. The foster mum’s are simply a stepping stone to a fantastic home, which offers everything they need.
Many people do not understand how the foster team can say goodbye when they have seen the dog grow and adjust. However, that is the exact reason why they are there, to help these dogs get adopted. Once that has happened, their job is complete.
As the dog is ready, the foster mums are too, they are ready to let go, to allow the dog the happiness of a family of their own. The place that they have told the dog all about, and have been building up to. Then they are ready to do it all again, with another dog, and another journey.
