Dogs Trust Shoreham appeals for special foster homes for poorly pups

Dogs Trust Shoreham is appealing for volunteers to foster some of their poorly pooches. The centre currently has several dogs that are undergoing medical assessment and are not quite well enough to venture off to their Forever Homes. 

Several of Shoreham’s canine residents would benefit hugely from a break from kennels and some much-needed home comforts. The team at Dogs Trust Shoreham are looking for foster carers who have the time to give these poorly pooches some much-needed extra TLC. 

Sarah Fox, Home from Home Coordinator at Dogs Trust Shoreham said:

“While we are always on the lookout to recruit new Foster Carer’s on our Home from Home scheme, we are in a specific need of Carer’s who can help us to monitor a dogs’ health, administer medication and offer a relaxing space of recovery until the dog is feeling well enough to meet their Special Someone.

“Due to the likelihood of on-going vet visits or check-ups from our Veterinary Team, you should have a full driver’s license and your home should be within a 45 minute drive to our Shoreham Rehoming Centre. 

“Ideally, you will not have any other dogs already living with you and you will be at home the majority of the day. We know that it takes a very special person to offer up your home temporarily to a rescue dog in need, so be assured that we will be here every step of the way for support & guidance.” 

If you think you’d have the perfect space to nurse a poorly pooch – or if you’d like to find out more, please don’t hesitate to contact our Home from Home Coordinator at: [email protected]
