Scottish Dalmatian Welfare

WHY FOSTER ?

Cleo came to us from Dalmatian Welfare and lived until she was 14 years old. She had been ill for some while and I had been caring for her, so we decided not to have another dog immediately as we wanted to go travelling.
The problem was that a large hole appeared in our lives which could only be filled by a Dalmatian. I looked at the website and discovered that foster homes were needed, we could do that, we thought. We had a long discussion with the co-ordinator and a week later our first foster dog arrived.

We decided to set some rules; dogs would not be allowed on the furniture, they would only be fed their correct food at standard times and they would be walked three times a day. The idea behind fostering is that dogs can be better assessed in a home environment, you can find our their likes and dislikes and whether they are suited to be rehomed with a family with children or other pets, or whether they would prefer somewhere quiet, where they would be the only animal in a home with adults. So that’s the theory.

In practise, each dog is an individual; some already came used to sleeping on the bed or sofa, eating treats from the table, or worse, from the plate! Some had never been walked, some had never worn a collar or had a lead. Some very sad ones came with bags of toys and letters giving their likes and dislikes. Some came with nothing at all.

There are many reasons why a dog needs rehoming; it has become too large and boisterous for someone who didn’t think about the consequences of taking on such an animal, often it is a change in the owners’ circumstances, the saddest are people who realise they are too ill to take care of their pets and so look to organisations like ours to help them at a very difficult time.

We found that the first three weeks was the honeymoon period, the dog would be on (relatively) good behaviour, after that they would start pushing the boundaries. We are lucky enough to live in the country and have many good walks close by so we were able to try all the dogs on and off the lead, check recall and how they coped with other dogs and farm animals. One day I stood by a stile calling the current dog and went through Coco, Sally, Bella, Spot……anything I could think of before I remembered the correct name! Some dogs stay in the memory, I collected one of the smallest bitches I have ever met and drove off home in the pouring rain, ten minutes later the clutch cable on my car broke and I had to call the rescue services. We arrived home somewhat later with the dog on my knee! One dog weighed over 40 kgs, she could barely walk so the priority with her was to cut down her food and exercise her, she hated me but is now happy with her new owners. Some dogs stay for a few hours as a rest on part of a long journey, some stay for weeks. It all depends on the requirements of the dogs and how it fits in with your own life. Then of course there is the one who stays put and is the new dog about the house!

The benefits of fostering are many, photos and letters from the new owners are always satisfying, to see such happy dogs and know that you have played a part in that process. Having a dog when it fits in with your life and knowing that you have back up from Welfare when you need it. You need to think about whether you have enough experience to be able to cope with the many challenges fostering can bring. You need somewhere quiet for a nervous dog, perhaps somewhere to put a crate which the dog can use as a safe place. Are your family in agreement, do you have enough time to walk the dog, individually from your own dog, if necessary for a while. You will be asked to pay for food for your foster dog, but all veterinary fees will be paid by Welfare. Will you be able to give the dog up when a new home becomes available for it are all questions to ask yourself, if the answer is yes, why not pick up the phone and call?

Foster Role Details

There are two key elements to this role. The first involves being responsible for meeting the daily needs of dogs in your care, including feeding, cleaning, grooming, exercising and socialising until the dog is rehomed. The second involves working with the committee with regard to the admission and subsequent rehoming of dogs.

Time Commitment

The nature of this volunteer role requires an ongoing commitment that will vary over time, making it difficult to predict how much time you will need to commit. You will need to be available at times appropriate to meeting the dog’s needs as you will have ongoing responsibility for any dogs in your care. The amount of time a dog can be left alone will vary.

Essential Requirements

  • Minimum age 18 years
  • If living in shared or rented accommodation, relevant permissions need to be obtained
  • Suitable home or garden accommodation
  • Experience of caring for a dog
  • Use of a suitable vehicle to transport a foster dog or cat safely

Typical Tasks Include:

  • Provide daily care for foster dogs e.g. feeding, cleaning accommodation, grooming, socialising, training and exercising
  • Liaise with the committee on admission and rehoming of dog(s) in your care
  • Maintain written records about the dogs in your care, including behaviour, health, dietary and other information, using them to report to the named committee member
  • Organise trips to the veterinary surgery, as required
  • Undertake training provided, as required
  • Accurate completion of expense forms to enable out-of-pocket expenses to be paid

Benefits:

  • A chance to make a difference to animal welfare in your local area by community involvement, helping us to rehome more dogs
  • An opportunity to use existing skills and develop new skills
  • Training and ongoing support and supervision
  • Gain direct experience of volunteering in a charity environment and become part of a team committed to the welfare of companion animals
  • A chance to meet and volunteer as a team member of likeminded people
  • Please send us an email to saveastaffie@yahoo.co.uk or phone us on 07594897338
