CALENDAR Dogs of the Month
September - Ella and Bobby Dylan
This picture is of Ella when she was still in foster care with us. She is one of the 8 greyhound pups from 2014. She went off to her new home quite quickly, not surprising as she is such a sweet and pretty girl.
This lovely little chap was born on Valentines day and he certainly stole the hearts of his new owners and his doggy friend in his new home.
Could you foster a dog?
As ever we are in desperate need of foster homes for our dogs. The input of foster carers is vital for the dogs we take in. It gives us a chance to assess the dog so that we can do our best to match the dog to the right home. It also gives the dog a chance to settle down, gain confidence and all too often health, before they move to their new and permanent home. Most dogs only stay in foster care for a short time, one or two weeks and it is our aim to find new homes for dogs as fast as possible. We do occasionally get a dog that needs a bit longer but not that often.
We have one foster carer who has not been without a foster dog all year. It would be nice to be able to give him a break from time to time. If we can get a large enough bank of foster carers it would mean that we could ask for help from time to time but not often.
If you think you might be able to help and you live in Caithness, North Sutherland or Orkney please complete an adoption form specifying that you are interested in fostering and we will be in contact to talk about it.
