Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare urgently needs foster carers for dogs for the charity’s Break Away scheme. Break Away helps owners who are fleeing domestic abuse or facing short-term hospitalisation and need temporary care for their animals. Fostering is perfect for those who miss the company of an animal but can’t commit to adoption.

To enable Raystede to help as many families as possible, they are looking for people who can meet the following requirements:

  • Willing to commit to fostering a dog for up to 3 months.
  • Are at home for most or all of the day.
  • Have no other animals.
  • If you have children, to be aged 10 and above.
  • Access to a car and being able to drive to Raystede.
  • Within a 45-minute radius of Raystede.

Raystede provides all food, care, equipment, veterinary care, training and ongoing support. This is a great opportunity to help a family – and their pets – in need.

Could you open your heart and your home to a foster dog?

This is what recent Break Away clients had to say:

“I honestly can’t thank you and the foster carer enough, without you we would have lost the boys forever, thank you once again for absolutely everything you’ve done to help us.”

“Just a little note to say how grateful we are for your work. In one of the most difficult times we have ever experienced in our lives, you were there to support and keep part of our family together. Because of your care and love we did not need to give our pets away. We will be forever thankful.”
