Becoming a dog fosterer

Giving your time to support Rain Rescue is one of the most valuable, rewarding and fun ways to help us do more for the animals in our care.

By becoming a fosterer you’re offering a wonderful temporary residence to a dog that is going through such a period of change in its life. Your offer of a home instead of kennel life, will help the dog close off the chapter of its previous life and learn how to live in a new life. This is an opportunity to see how your foster dog will behave in a domestic environment, so we can find them the home most suited to their needs.

We often have ex racing greyhounds in our care, and they need help re-adjusting to life away from kennels.  They need a home with no cats or other dogs, but may accept another greyhound.

We don’t know how the dogs will behave when they get into a home and therefore look for foster homes without children under 16.

We'll Look After You

The time you give to support us in our work is precious, and in return we are there to support you to make this great and help your dog in need.

We are specifically looking for fosterers who have no other pets and no children under 10. We’re also looking for those experienced with ex racing Greyhounds, and would consider foster homes with other Greyhounds to pair with. We are unable accept other types of foster homes at the moment. Thank you for your understanding.
