Guide Dogs for the Blind
Guide Dog Fosterer
Our ambition is a future where every person with sight loss has the confidence and support they need to live their lives to the full. To help achieve this objective we are looking for fostering volunteers.
Our respite fosterers provide temporary accommodation for a dog at home on behalf of Guide Dogs, and comply with the Boarders Agreement in relation to the welfare and handling of the dog or puppy.
A small number of Respite Boarders are required for when we need someone to care for dogs unexpectedly. This is for varying periods, for example, taking dogs full time if they don’t settle in kennels, are unwell or they are withdrawn from training.
Due to some of the additional needs dogs in respite care may have, it is preferable for families not to have young children below the age of 12 or pet dogs.
