Fostering process, support and guidance

We always welcome fosterer’s as they are the backbone support of the rescue. The more we have, the more dogs we can rescue. Please watch the two videos to get more information about how we support our fosterer’s in their important role.

How To Apply To foster

Please email in to barneyssmallbreedrescue@gmail.com and request a foster application form. You will be sent a link to our online form which you complete and submit online. The team will then contact you to arrange a homecheck. Once the homecheck is complete you will be contacted to confirm whether you are on the active foster list.

As a dog comes into rescue and seems to match with your details, we will contact you to organise the dog being transported to you. You will receive a foster pack including bedding, harnesses, lead and food and the dog will wear a Barney’s ID tag until he becomes adopted.

The foster co-ordinator will be in regular touch to provide any support. Our founder who is a qualified behavioural therapist is on hand for any training advice.

As a rescue we only promote positive reinforcement training which we require from all our fosterers.
