Fostering
for the UK-GSR 
Fostering is like owning a dog but without the worry of the vet bills, the UK German Shepherd Rescue will cover all veterinary costs including vaccinations, micro-chipping and spay and neutering whilst in foster care. The rescue does not cover food unless they require a specialist diet. On average it costs about 10 per week to feed a German Shepherd, but there are other things you need to think about.

Equipment

Your foster dog will arrived wearing a collar and lead, if you don't have dogs already you may need to purchase extra items such as food and water bowls, harnesses or head collars, beds or bedding, toys and treats.

Feeding

The average size German Shepherd costs about 10 per week to feed (excluding treats) this can vary by the size of the dog and whether the dog prefers complete dry dog food or tinned meat and biscuits etc, special diets are covered by the rescue.

Worming

A dog will require routine worming treatments and these can cost 10-15 every 3 months.

Flea Treatment

A dog will require regular flea treatments and these can cost around 5 per month.

Grooming and Bathing

The rescue expects you to groom and maintain a dogs coat and ensure nails are not overgrown, visits to the groomers are not covered by the rescue nor are shampoo's for home bathing.


Vets Fees And Insurance

Foster dogs or any dog belong to our rescue are not covered by pet insurance, all veterinary costs are out of pocket expenses for the rescue. The rescue has on average over 42 dogs, so vet bills can be a huge strain on resources. We cover all "approved" veterinary costs but don't cover unapproved visits so please always ensure you have completed a veterinary request form before attending your vet.
