a foster carers experience


We got our dog, Bonnie, from the Trust in September but felt that we would like to help more in some way. We spoke to the re-homing volunteers and asked if there was any way that we could be of further assistance and it was suggested that we may foster Bubbles. Bubbles needed a little bit extra care to help her get used to the big, wide world and those strange creatures called, “dogs who aren’t greyhounds”.

We took Bubbles home in November and we have had a fantastic experience. Our main aim was to provide a family environment for Bubbles as she was so used to the kennels. We have seen Bubbles grow into a beautiful, friendly and loving dog and she has given us just as much if not more than we have her. We had great fun teaching her how to go up and down the stairs - she had never had to negotiate them before! Luckily Bonnie offered a helping hand (or even paw!!).

Bubbles slipped on the ice during a cold spell and the Trust were excellent at ensuring any vets bills were covered and have also provided food for her whilst in our care.

As a family we will be very sad to see Bubbles go but we will be very happy that she is getting her own loving home and hopefully we will have played a small part in her journey. If you can help in any way then we know the Trust will be very helpful and offer all the support you require as they have us.
