Every year, thousands of dogs need to go in to foster homes during their transition from rescue dog to family dog.
There are never enough foster homes available to help rescues save all the dogs in need, and tens of thousands of dogs are euthanised in the UK every year due to lack of homes.
By fostering dogs, you can help rescues save more dogs from a pointless death – and help more dogs on their way to happy lives with new families.
It's impossible to predict how long an animal will remain in foster care. Some pets are adopted within 24 hours of becoming available. Others wait years for a home. Pendle Dogs in Need does not euthanize an animal for taking too long to be adopted. Our animals stay with us for as long as it takes. If you cannot commit to this kind of unpredictable long-term care, you might wish to help in other ways. We expect our adopters to never give up on their pets, so we expect the same from our foster parents.
Please note: There is an adoption fee of £150, this also applies to fosterers that decide they would like to offer their foster dog a forever home. Pendle Dogs in Need is a non-profit organisation, so the adoption fee is vital for us to continue to do the work we do. It covers medical costs such as vaccinations, neutering, microchipping and overall vet checks.
