Like many rescue charities we rely on foster families to help us care for some of our greyhounds and lurchers awaiting adoption into loving permanent homes, and we are currently looking for foster homes.
Ideally, we need families who are at home most of the day and are prepared to give the time and effort required by each individual dog. Our fosterers can be single, married or retired people, ideally with a garden. Foster families can also have children and other types of pets.
Each foster dog is different; some may need house/toilet training, others how to walk on the lead, ride in a car, how to get along with other pets and children, some how to deal with being left on their own. Often these dogs have come from difficult backgrounds and will need time and patience. Many have only known life in a kennel so they will look to you for guidance.
Fostering for Forever Hounds Trust is immensely rewarding. Although it can be very difficult to let your foster dog move onto their forever home it is also very satisfying knowing that you have helped in the process. We need foster families who are happy to re-home their foster dog in readiness for the next one they can help. Time in foster care varies – it can be as short as a few days or as long as several months.
Could you be one of our special fosterers?
