Many of our dogs are waiting for loving foster homes. Could you be a foster carer?
Where possible we prefer to place our rescue dogs in foster homes which enables us to assess how they react to different situations and work on their house training and socialisation where required. This also makes the transition for dogs used to living in a home much less stressful.
We have a network of foster carers but we are always in need of more volunteers. We like to have our foster carers within an hours travel of the Cardiff/Newport. This enables us to provide the maximum support to the foster carers and dogs. This makes it easier for vet appointments, open days etc and to allow carers to get the support that they need.
As a foster carer you will play an extremely valuable role in reintegrating our dogs into a normal loving family environment. In our experience rescue dogs have a much smoother transition into their permanent homes if they have received care and rehabilitation from a committed foster home. Often, we don’t have a great deal of information about the dogs needing foster homes because they have come to us as unclaimed strays – we rely on our foster carers to assess the dogs and provide us with the information we need to be able to match a perfect forever home.
We can supply foster carers with dog food, bedding, bowls collars/leads etc. if needed and we cover the cost of all vet treatments. FPARSW foster carers are also covered by our third party liability insurance (whilst the dog is on a lead).
Foster carers will receive all the support needed, we have an active private Facebook group where there is lots of chat and it’s a great place to ask any questions you may have. If you have ever considered fostering and would like to find out more, please complete our form.
