Volunteer Fostering

We are always looking for volunteer fosterers to help us with the number of Poodle's that are handed in to us. We don't have kennels and rely on a team of wonderful fosterers to support the Poodles we take, so if you can help, find out more about what is involved and apply below.

Being a fosterer is a wholesome and fulfilling opportunity to spend time working with a range of incredible animals, on a temporary to long-term basis, depending on their circumstances. 

We are in a unique situation where Covid, mixed with over-breeding during lockdown and now the cost of living crisis has perpetuated a perfect storm. We are inundated with the number of Poodles being handed in and are now unfortunately in a position where we need more fosterers to keep up with the demand on us.

We need your help now, so if you are interested in becoming a volunteer fosterer for us then find out more information and apply below.

What is Involved in Fostering?

So what exactly is involved in fostering for us? Here is a simple overview:

  • You'll be asked to take dogs, sometimes without much notice, other times with plenty of notice, all dependent on the circumstances.

  • Dogs may be placed with you on a short-term or long-term basis, depending on their situation.

  • You may be required to take the dogs for medical assessments and treatments based on their individual needs.

  • You may need to work on training with the dogs in your care, this includes house, obedience, or possibly agility depending on their needs.
