Lewis and Abby
Lewis and Abby were both picked up as strays
within 24 hours of one another. It was thought
they must have been together before as they
obviously knew each other. Lewis went off to his
wonderful new home quite quickly but we began
to wonder if Abby would ever find her home. We
were delighted when Lewis's owners decided to
take Abby as well. As you can see it was a very
happy ending to this tale.

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.
If you are thinking about adopting a
dog please complete an application
form. You can do this even if you
haven't seen a dog you think is for
you. Once we have your details we
may be able to match you to a dog
that comes in.
