  • Home-based volunteering


Description

Every dog we rehome saves 2 lives not just one! Every dog who finds a home will save another life by creating a space in the kennels. Our dogs need time in a foster home to get used to a home environment, before they find their forever home. We are not breed specific and support dogs of all sizes and breeds. Tasks: Caring for one of our dogs, in your own home, Helping with training and socialisation, Reporting to coordinator about their progress, Supporting introductions to potential adopters.

Organisation aims and objectives

We believe that every dog deserves a forever home. We help as many dogs as we can, most come from pounds up and down the country who would have been put to sleep, through no fault of their own. Adopting a rescue dog saves two lives, every dog we take in will save another life by creating a space in the pound.
