Foster Dog Carer

We need committed volunteers to foster dogs in their own homes.

  • These dogs belong to people who are escaping from domestic abuse and need temporary care until they can be reunited with their owners
  • As a foster carer you can enjoy caring for a dog without the lifetime commitment and will be helping dogs and their families to escape violence and cruelty
  • There is no cost to you as all food, equipment and veterinary care are covered by Dogs Trust
  • As a foster carer you will be fully supported throughout the foster period by our experienced staff


In order to be eligible as a foster carer we ask that you:

  • Are over 18 years of age
  • Have experience of caring for a dog
  • Be kind, patient, committed and have a genuine love of animals
  • Be at home during the day as we ask that the foster dog is not left for more than four hours
  • Be able to commit to the project for at least six months


  • Age restrictions
    over 18's
