By fostering you are giving a rescue dog or cat the chance of a happy life and creating a shelter place for a second rescue dog or cat who will now be safe. For dogs you must have a secure garden with 6-foot fencing in order to foster. We do not send foster dogs to homes with children under 5 years old.
When you foster a dog or puppy, cat or kitten you are signing up to foster him or her until they are adopted. Whether by you or another family. This doesn't mean that if they're not suitable to be adopted by your family that we will move them somewhere else. We ask that you work through any issues together with us. They are shelter dogs and will be far from perfect when they arrive.
Shelter dogs are often not tested with children and/or cats or other pets. Even dogs that have been tested with cats in the shelter may chase cats in their new home. Please also remember that if you do decide to adopt, we ask that the adoption fee is paid in full, straight away. If you are considering adopting, please make sure you have the adoption fee available. The following advice is provided in conjunction with the Terms & Conditions as agreed if you apply to foster.
