People across Worcestershire are giving homeless hounds at Dogs Trust Evesham a temporary home this Christmas whilst they wait to be adopted.
The Dogs Trust’s 'Home From Home' scheme was piloted in 2015 in Evesham.
It finds foster homes for dogs that need time out from the rehoming centre, such as young puppies, older dogs and those who have lived in a home all their life.
Due to the success of the project, it has now been rolled out nationwide.
Foster carers Jo and Simon Kite live in Pershore with their teenage daughters and have fostered four dogs. Jo said:
Sarah Galvin, Co-ordinator of the Home from Home fostering scheme at Dogs Trust Evesham, said:
Sarah says there are 20 active foster families who help to take in dogs in need, but she is always looking for more foster carers to call upon.
