Old street dog Sampson gets his happy ending…


Foster a Rescue dog: Save their life & change yours! 

I was out of town, if a foster hadn’t stepped up Sampson wouldn’t have seen 2016! 

One week was all it took, a slight adjustment in a daily routine and then the lasting knowledge that a life has been saved! 

Fostering is my favourite thing in the world!

Going to the shelter, choosing a lonely unloved soul, taking them for their first bath, beach walk, yummy chicken meal, buying them their first toy, watching them fall asleep smiling, giving them their first experience of love!

Its the worlds most effective anti depressant!

You can’t offer a dog ‘forever’ but you’d love to have a dog? 

You have a dog who’d love some company?

You want to teach your kids compassion and responsibility?

Fostering may be for you! 

I normally hear “I’m too soft hearted, I wouldn’t be able to let them go, It would break my heart”. Followed by some nonsense about wishing they had a farm, then they’d take them all!!

What should break our hearts is healthy, loving dogs being put to sleep or locked away from the world till they go mad! See the blissful thing about fostering is it isn’t about you!!

You know the misery your Doglet has come from, your one goal is saving them from going back, when they are offered a forever home you will be delighted! Delighted!

Any tears are tears of joy! Promise!
