Apart from donating, there are lots of ways you can support us. It makes all the difference to the brave men and women we are trying to help, as well as rescue dogs.
We have received amazing support and rely on grants from other organisations and businesses as well as the generosity of the public.
Support as a Foster
Fostering is absolutely vital to our organisation; this is really where YOU can make the difference to both a dog and a veteran and support is very welcome.
Fostering is a real commitment and do consider it seriously as whilst it is extremely rewarding, it, especially in the beginning, is not always plain sailing. We need people with the amazing patience to let the dog settle in, this period might be 2 – 3 months, after this period the dog will be placed with the veteran to complete the programme.
We are currently looking for fosters based in the area of East Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex. We will provide you with all the basic care needs, and will cover any veterinary bills and transport costs.
