Dogs Trust Evesham is calling on local dog lovers who can accommodate larger breeds to consider opening their hearts and their homes to a foster dog.
Over the past year, Dogs Trust Evesham has been overwhelmed with foster carer applications and have been able to place many dogs who were struggling in kennels during the pandemic into temporary homes.
However, there are some dogs waiting to go into a foster home that need a more specific set up. Because of this, the charity is now recruiting for foster carers who have space for a larger breed, and are around for the majority of the day.
Sarah Galvin, Home from Home Coordinator at Dogs Trust Evesham, says: “During the past year, we have been so grateful for the support of our amazing volunteer foster carers. This support has meant we’ve been able to get a lot of our dogs into temporary homes during the pandemic. However, we are looking for need foster carers who would feel confident in taking on a larger breed.
“The ideal candidate would live no more than a 45 minutes’ drive from the centre, have a secure garden and around for most of the day. It’s quicker to place dogs in homes without children or other animals, however, we will still take applications from adopters who have children or other pets living with them. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, we would love to hear from you!”
Fostering is completely free and Dogs Trust Evesham will provide everything you will need, such as food, bedding, toys, treats and are on hand to provide 24-hour guidance and training advice.
If you think you can offer a rescue dog the type of foster home we are looking for please contact Sarah Galvin at firstname.lastname@example.org
