Foster Kennels and Foster Carers Urgently Needed

As some of you know already we now have a small number of foster kennels available. These are kennels that people have built in their gardens so that they can provide short term and emergency accomodation for some of our more needy dogs. These have proved to be very successful because they provide a more normal environment for the dogs. They can get play time in the garden and time inside the volunteer's home. In fact very often the foster dogs end up living in the house with the foster families and their other pets. If you think you have space to erect a kennel and time to spend with a foster dog please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.

We are also in desparate need of foster carers. We keep losing our foster carers because they foster a dog then inevitably end up keeping it! Obviously we are delighted when this happens but we would love to find some more foster homes where people maybe don't already have a dog, or have German Shepherd experience and can help with some of our dogs that have issues. You can see from our site that many of the dogs we get asked to re-home have issues that can be worked on if people are prepared to put in some time and effort.

If you can offer a warm, loving foster home please get in touch.

German Shepherds don't do well in kennels, we would love to have warm foster homes to offer instead of cold concrete kennels. ALL food and expenses will be covered by the rescue.
