Foster Care Information
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Foster Carer for Forgotten Souls Dog Rescue.
Forgotten Souls Dog Rescue specialises in saving Large Breed Dogs that are left behind in pounds and/or surrendered due to their size. Once these dogs are safe with us in foster care we then complete any necessary vet work and look to re-home them into a loving and safe forever home.
Fostering is a very important and crucial role in rescue. Dogs are matched to the best of our ability to the perfect foster home to ensure a happy and successful experience is had by the people/families involved and the dog placed in your care.
What does Forgotten Souls Dog Rescue provide?
We pay for all of the dogs vet work up until they are adopted. All dogs in our care will be de-sexed, microchipped, heart-worm tested and kept up to date with vaccinations, worming/heart-worming and flea treatment.
We provide 24/7 support and back up and love to stay in regular contact.
We try and negotiate rescue rates for the dogs vet work at a vet close to the foster home for minimal disruption to the foster parent.
In special needs cases when a professional trainer is required, they will be sourced and paid for by us.
At times when we have donations on hand we are able to supply a foster pack which can include any or all of the following – lead, collar/harness, toys, treats, food etc
If you would like any further information on fostering for us, please do not hesitate to ask, and thank you once again for helping to save a life!
What does fostering a dog involve?
Helping love and care for the dog, establishing a routine and providing basic training.
e.g. sit, stay, come, shake etc, toilet training and other manners that every dog needs.
Fostering may also involve taking your foster dog to specialist appointments.
e.g. their required vet visits and in some special needs cases your foster dog may require working with a professional trainer.
Providing food and bedding.
We will supply any donations of food that we receive to foster carers when available.
Welcoming a dog in to your home until they find their forever home.
This can take anywhere between 1 week to 6 months or longer (if there is a time restraint on how long you are able to foster for, please let us know)
Providing a safe and secure environment while helping us get to know the dog.
e.g. their likes/dislikes, personality and also by providing pictures to help us help them find their forever home.
