Before completing the Application to Foster Form, please read the following guidance notes.
APPLICANTS MUST BE AGED 21 OR OVER.
ALL EXISTING DOGS IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD MUST BE NEUTERED.
- Fostering should be a well thought out decision, where every member of your household is on board and supportive with the idea of fostering. Fostering should not be considered a shortcut to adopting.
- All of our foster carers must undergo a satisfactory home visit by one of our volunteers before they can start fostering.
- As a foster carer, you would be expected to be able to provide food and routine care such as regular worming and flea treatments. PDWRA are able to cover the cost for other vet bills and any travel expenses.
- Foster carers must be prepared to care for, nurse, train and assess our foster pugs, and then ultimately be able to let the pug move on to an adoptive home when ready. If you are thinking of taking on a pug permanently by adopting, then please visit this page instead:
- Please note that by applying to foster for PDWRA you would be expected to be prepared to take on pugs that may not be house trained, pugs that may need training, pugs that may have health issues varying from minor to severe, and pugs that may have been neglected or mistreated, which can be upsetting.
- All our foster pugs now require a veterinary health check, so there will be at least one veterinary visit, and potentially more if any treatment is required. Rescue pugs will often require regular medications which will need to be given by the foster carer.
- Our foster carers are also required to complete a foster assessment form, which helps us to find the right adoptive home.
Please note that as our foster pugs often need a lot of attention and care, we do require that our foster carers be home for most of the time. For this reason, we will not consider applications for fostering from full time workers.
