What is Fostering
Fostering can be a great way to own a dog without long term commitment, if you work or live abroad for part of the year but enjoy the company of a dog when home, fostering can fill that gap.

Maybe you are unsure about getting another dog, fostering can help you to decide weather you are ready to take on a full time commitment. Or maybe you just love the breed and would love to help us rescue and re-home unwanted German shepherds.

You wont be on your own; our experienced team will be there every step of the way. You will receive full backup, ongoing 24 hour support and a financial support with veterinary costs. If youve ever thought about fostering wed love to hear from you.
Types of foster care
There are a number of different reasons why our German Shepherds need fostering and there are lots of types of foster care:
Emergency Foster - When carers look after a dog that is been removed for it's own safety or where there is an immediate risk to life of the animal. Emergency foster cares for these dogs while a more secure place is found, a new home or kennel space normally within a few hours or a few days.
Short Term Foster - Short term foster care ranges from a few days to a few weeks. Easy to rehome German Shepherds that come into our care are often placed in short term foster homes, these dogs are normally adopted quicker than other dogs, this could be because they are young dogs or puppies, more socialable with other dogs and like children. Cat friendly dogs are always adopted quicker.  
Long Term Foster - Long term foster homes care for a full range of dogs including those details above, they care for our younger pups to our more senior citizens and everything in between.  
Retirement Foster - Retirement fosterers care for our senior dogs that require a home to see out their days. Sadly due to their age and or medical hisory they become undesirable for adoption. Whenever possible we place these dogs into our retirement foster homes where they can be warm, comfy and most importantly loved.
Specialist Foster - Special fosterers care for or more challenging roles, these range from new born puppies requiring bottle feeding to more unsociable dogs that need some extra training and guidance. Specialist foster carers need to experienced in their roles and fully understand the breed and the dogs they will care for.
