The Dogs Trust is keen to hear from dog lovers in Angus who have room in their home for a foster dog.

The charity’s West Calder rehoming centre is extending its Home from Home fostering scheme to new areas and staff are particularly looking for doggy fosterers in Dundee and Angus.

Whether you live in a but and ben or bungalow by taking care of a dog in your home temporarily, you can help them get back on their paws and be one step closer to finding a forever home.

Susan Tonner, West Calder Rehoming Centre Manager said: “The Home from Home foster scheme is a very important part of our work finding new forever homes for every dog that comes into our care. Some dogs are more suited to a home environment and these are the dogs we look to place into a foster home.

“Since the scheme started at our centre at the end of 2016, we have rehomed over 435 dogs through fostering with our aim being to rehome over 100 every year. This equates to around 4,000 days collectively per year when the dogs are in foster homes rather than kennels. Fostering allows us to really get to know our dogs so that we can match each individual dog with their perfect new home.

“We are excited to be extending our reach to Angus where we currently don’t have any foster homes. Fosterers must have time and patience to help the dog adjust to their new surroundings and also be prepared to say goodbye to the dog in the future which can often be the hardest part.”
