And they all lived..
Could You Become a fosterer
We have an amazing group of Fosterers who welcome our dogs into their homes to prepare them for their happily ever afters.
We and the dogs simply couldn't be without them. Dogs who are in foster get re-homed much quicker, it also helps our dogs adjust to family life and routines before being adopted. It really helps us to asses the dog in a home environment and work out who would be the perfect family.
Being a fosterer can be so rewarding, to see a dog who has been rescued go on to have a home and family of their own is truly wonderful.
If you think you could welcome a foster dog into your home, please get in touch. You don't need to have loads of experience, you just need to have lots of love and patience.
If you think you have what it takes to become a fosterer, then please contact us so we can send you an application form and discuss with you what would be involved.
Ode To A Foster Dog
I am the bridge
Between what was and what can be.
I am the pathway to a new life.
I am made of mush,
Because my heart melted when I saw you,
Matted and sore, limping, depressed,
Lonely, unwanted, afraid to love.
For one little time you are mine.
I will feed you with my own hand
I will love you with my whole heart
I will make you whole.
I am made of steel.
Because when the time comes,
When you are well, and sleek,
When your eyes shine,
And your tail wags with joy
Then comes the hard part.
I will let you go -- not without a tear,
But without a regret.
For you are safe forever—
A new dog needs me now.
