Ever thought about Fostering?
Here at SFP we are always looking for good regular foster homes for our pups.
Fostering lasts a few weeks on average, but can be longer.
We welcome people with other dogs, cats and dog-savvy children, as all of this is useful information for us.
Fostering is unpaid cash-wise, but hugely rewarding emotionally and a great way to 'practise' having a dog.
We ask only that you make sure you can commit to the duration of the foster period, as we have no back-up plans I'm afraid. If you would like to know more about fostering, please contact us
Above is the photo that Kim saw that spured her on to offer Hero a foster home...
A few words from one of our foster mums:
Kim with Hero in her own home
Kim: "I can't remember how I first came across Serbia's Forgotten Paws, but I saw a photo of a dog on their twitter feed, and just couldn't turn away.
This dog looked so completely miserable that I knew I had to do something to help and so I contacted SFP and sent some money to help with her care.
As it turned out, it wasn't a moment too soon, as Hero, (as she became named), was so weak she couldn't even support her own bodyweight.
She is now a healthy, beautiful and much loved dog in her new family in the UK.
I will warn you at this point that helping dogs and bringing so much happiness to their new families becomes a little addictive. I currently have my third SFP dog in foster care with me.
Although you can't help but get attached to them, it's such a rewarding thing to do and I'm very grateful for the support and help that SFP and the wider group gives me in caring for these dogs.
SFP is a great charity, they work tirelessly for these dogs in very difficult conditions and I'm really pleased to be able to contribute my help.
Whatever you feel able to do, whether that's adopting, fostering, or sending a few pounds, please do, it makes such a difference and I can assure you the dogs are very, very grateful."
