Application to be a Foster Carer

Are you ready for this?

Caring for a foster dog is not always easy at first. The dog you bring home may not be housetrained, they may chew inappropriate things, bark or display other undesirable behaviour. They may have disagreements with your existing pets and they may show issues such as anxiety and destructiveness. It can take days or weeks for things to settle down.

But the work you can do in teaching them appropriate behaviour and providing a low stress environment can be critical in helping them transition to a new family. The Foster Care Coordinator and Dogs’ Home support team will provide you with as much information and support as possible.
