Dog Foster Carers Wanted

Every now and then London Dog Forum is asked if we know of any dog foster carers.  Often it is for owners who, through no fault of their own, are in temporary accommodation where dogs are not accepted.  As we like to support the human/dog relationship in every way we can, we have added this category for anyone who is looking for help of this kind in the hope that we can find someone who is willing to give a dog a temporary home.  


Can anyone help Dee in the Campden Area? 

Dee, an OAP with mobility problems  is being assessed for emergency council accommodation and is in a temporary half way house which isn't dog friendly.

She has two beloved dogs Rosie and Milo and at night she had been locking herself in the car with them if she could find no one to take them for sleepovers.  Rosie now has a temporary foster home but the difficulty lies with Milo.

Milo, seven year old Jack Russell. He has a fast growing lump and needs a biopsy and very probably ongoing treatment. He is registered with the PDSA in Hendon and they are doing a grand job.

Dee would love to find a local person in Camden to foster Milo as she is very worried about him and wants to be there for every vet appointments in Hendon as she is obviously fearing the worst. These dogs are Dee's entire world.

Tailwaggers Club Trust has set up an emergency fund and if we need the services of a local dog sitter for this period then I think this  could be used as temporary stop gap if we can find a dog sitter able to fit around Dee's needs.

However, if we could find someone close and flexible enough to get Milo to Dee for vet appointments and support them through this it would be a massive weight of her mind and well mine as well as I'd love to hear its resolved as I do worry about this lady!

In younger happier days Dee fostered dogs herself. Her story came to us via a local dog sitter who the vet had asked to help.

Dee's life is in turmoil at the moment but Milo and Rosie are everything to her and are lovely dogs. She has tried all the usual charity channels but if anyone has any special connections or knows of a kind soul in Camden that maybe having a dogless period and enjoy making a massive difference to two lives, please do pass them this message.
