If you can offer a rescue dog a foster space in your home and lifestyle over a longer period of time, or even better until they find a forever home, you can consider a long-term foster. We cover all the fees except for the food, toys and treats. We even support you with any training needed.

Please note although we re-home throughout the UK we can only accept foster applications from people within Hull and East Riding. The reason for this is we need the dog to be accessible for appointments and viewings. 

The biggest restrictions on what dogs we can place in foster is typically:

  • Children
  • Other Dogs
  • Cats/small furries
  • Being left alone
For dogs who are lucky enough to get placed into foster, the benefits are huge. They can enjoy more one to one attention and a settled home environment. The dogs can be better assessed which provides a better understanding of the dog's behaviour, enabling us to match them with the perfect home, family and lifestyle. Some dogs cope better than others with kennels and for those that don't cope so well, many behaviour issues seen in kennels are not seen at home and as a result the dogs are much happier and stress free. 

The benefits for you are great too: experience in looking after and handling a range of dogs, walkies everyday - meet new people and get fit! cuddles and snuggles, playtime and games and a new best friend who you can keep updated with once they've found their new home.

Conditions of Fostering

Many of the dogs that arrive at Oakwood have a vague, blurred history or none at all. Therefore they are often un-assessed in a home environment and may display problem behaviours, from minor lack of house training, to severe aggression to people etc. To prevent further disruption to these dogs already traumatic lives, we need our foster carers to be totally committed to whatever dog they take on and to work through any issues that are presented.

We will provide support and advice with email, phone and home visits where necessary to address issues and progression with training. Equally we need a committment from our fosters to be able to provide this effectively. We will endeavour to assess the dogs to the best of our professional ability to match you with a dog that is suitable for lifestyle, although many behavioural issues may only surface in the home environment.

We will cover veterinary fees of our rescue dogs in foster, you as the foster are required to provide food, toys etc.
