Could you be a West Calder foster carer?

Dogs Trust receive a number of dogs that just aren’t cut out for kennels – these may be puppies, older dogs, dogs with injuries/medical conditions or sometimes we just run out of space.

We are looking for foster carers that are happy to take dogs into their home until we are able to find a forever home for them. Foster carers play a huge role in a rescue dog’s life and by working with Dogs Trust, you can help us save more of them from unnecessary mistreatment or destruction.

All families will receive full support and advice regarding the dog in their care and we will equip you with everything you need such as food and bedding. Any veterinary treatment is covered by Dogs Trust. Like us, rescue dogs come in all shapes, sizes and have different personalities so we will always endeavour to place the right dog in your care, however you need to be flexible and adaptable to what dogs you take in.

Most of our foster placements will be fairly short notice, so we will need you to be fairly adaptable to change, and to be available at short notice. If you are interested and located within a 90-minute drive of the West Calder Rehoming Centre please read the more detailed role description, and fill in the application form (both available for download below).
