Many problems can arise during your fostering period which often cannot be foreseen by either ourselves or you. We need to understand that you will contact your foster helper in order to solve the problem whilst it is still manageable and not wait until you feel you cannot continue to foster the dog. We must trust that you are prepared to commit 100% to ensuring the dog is safe and settled with you and that you will try your very hardest to keep it and help it through its settling in period.

As you have looked after the dog, we may ask your opinion on prospective owners. However the final rehoming decisions are down to All Dogs Matter.

Do you agree to those conditions?

Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, 1974: you must declare any unspent criminal convictions registered against you.

And finally, please tell us in a few words why you are interested in fostering - this will just give us an understanding of what you are hoping to achieve and how we may help you.

Thank you for your application.
We’ll be in touch soon.
