URGENT short/long term fosterers required

Post by Admin on Mon Apr 11, 2011 12:15 am

We are desperately in need of both long and short term fosterers.

As we have many shepherds coming through the Rescue - at times we are not able to rehome them straight away and they must either be placed in fostercare or into commercial kennels.

Placing a dog into commercial kennels cost the Rescue from £6-£10 per day and the dogs character changes due the enviroment and stress.

By placing a dog into short term foster care, we can then have a clearer idea on the type of home the dog requires with keeping the Rescue upto date on any issues or medical problems the dog may have.

We have all dogs thoroughly assessed before being put into fostercare so we have an outline on what the dog is like eg. ok with other dogs, cats, any issues etc.
We would never put a fosterers animals at risk nor any members of the family.

We do ask you are german shepherd experienced or large breed experienced, compentent to look after a dog and to update the Rescue on a regular basis.
IF we have sufficient funds we will provide food, bedding, lead collar etc. and we pay for ALL medical costs *but you must pass this with the Rescue before taking the dog to the vets*

We ask you to complete and sign a fostering contract - this will give you the exact requirements of fostering a dog from us - and what your/our legal obligations are.

In return - you will be giving the shepherd a stepping stone (or pit-stop as I like to call it) onto their new forever home - giving the new home a clearer idea if there are any issues which need to be worked on - which food suits the dog - any basic commands/lead work which needs to be addressed or worked on further. This is a very rewarding position with the Rescue and many times our fosterers fail and ask to adopt the foster dog which of course we never refuse.

If you feel you would be interested in this position with the Rescue please fill out the volunteer application form or contact a member of the Rescue.

We homecheck all fosterers so we can have a report on the animals you currently have, and to discuss fostering with you.

Hi i lost my beloved 12 year old german shepherd to cancer 6 weeks ago, as you can imagine we are devastated as he was such a big part of our life and family..i have decided that i would like to foster if i can, I can offer a very loving and safe home for the right dog that could live with a family ( i do have children aged 14,8 and 10 month old ) dont know if this would hinder my chances of fostering? I am a stay at home mum so the dog would never be left for long,we have a good sized garden with fences and gate all over 6ft, my husband is in the army and is always out running,jogging,walking ect so the dog would never get bored Smile also i miss walking my dog Sad we have a great vets 2 mile away, lots of wooded areas ect also we like to go away some weekends but we always go dog friendly due to me hating putting my old dog in kennels soo he always came with us Smile

Just wanted to check if you got my 'addit' I sent via the site contact form. Old age doesn't come alone and in my case I blame it for forgetting to add some details to the adoption form lol!
