Dogs Trust in Evesham, Worcestershire is appealing for more volunteer foster carers for dogs.

The charity’s Home from Home fostering scheme, launched two years ago and gives dogs the chance to thrive in a temporary home until a permanent family come forward to adopt them.

“Some dogs aren’t cut out for kennel life. Some find it overwhelming and others, such as puppies, older dogs, dogs that are poorly, pregnant or recovering from an operation, would all benefit from being in a home rather than kennels.

– Sarah Fortey, Home from Home Co-ordinator

Dogs Trust say nearly 17,000 dogs are in need of care each year through its Rehoming Centres. The charity also provides training advice and guidance if needed and 24 hour support.
