Dog Foster Carer
The Freedom Project is a free fostering service for dogs belonging to people fleeing from domestic abuse. Families fleeing domestic abuse are usually unable to take their pets with them into a refuge so in many cases they are reluctant to leave their home until they know there is somewhere safe for their pets. Dogs Trust, alongside other pets fostering services in the UK, offers a solution.
We always need volunteers living in the Central Belt of Scotland to become foster carers and we think there are many fantastic benefits to being part of the Freedom Project:
-The enjoyment of caring for a dog without the lifetime commitment
-You will be helping a family and their dog to escape from an abusive home
-Walking a dog is a fantastic way to exercise and keep fit and healthy
-Dogs are a great talking point and a way to get out and meet new people
-You’ll receive ongoing advice and support from our friendly Freedom Project staff
-Dogs Trust covers all food, expenses and veterinary bills
Without the help and support of our dedicated volunteer foster carers, we wouldn't be able to run the Freedom Project.
If you are interested in applying to become a foster carer for the Freedom Project, please complete our online enquiry form and we will send you an application form and information pack so you can find more about what it means to be a volunteer foster carer. We may also give you a call to chat about the project and whether the opportunity is right for you.
It usually takes up to 3 weeks to become a registered volunteer.
An RSPB pin badge volunteer plays a vital role in raising funds within their local community, helping to give nature a home across the country. The role involves looking after an existing pin badge box site, or placing new ones, topping it up with badges, collecting and banking funds, as well as recording monies online and ordering replacement stock.
For just a couple of hours each month, a little time makes a huge difference to the RSPB’s work.
The role is flexible to suit the volunteer’s existing commitments and full training and support will be provided. Travel expenses can be reclaimed to ensure the volunteer is not out-of-pocket.
It is an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to boost their skills and make a difference through volunteering, helping to save Scotland’s wildlife and habitats.
