(currently Munster region only)

WE URGENTLY NEED FOSTER FAMILIES IN THE MUNSTER REGION TO CARE FOR OUR PUPPIES

Every puppy is reared and socialised by a loving volunteer puppy foster family for the first 12 - 15 months of their training journey. 

This is a vital role to our service providing a solid foundation for our puppies before their formal training.

Puppy Foster Carer Criteria

No experience is needed but you must meet the following criteria

  • Do you have time to care for, feed and train a puppy under the guidance of our Puppy Foster Care Supervisor

  • Are you at home for the majority of the day, puppies can’t be left for more than 2 hours

  • Do you have time to spend on different activities, taking the puppy into different environments. The puppies wear a jacket and have access to public places

  • Do you have a secure enclosed garden

  • You must be allowed to have a dog in your home – we will need written permission if it is rented accommodation

  • Do you drive or have access to a car and willing to get the dog to a vet in a case of emergency.

  • It is fine if you have other dogs but they would have to be walked separately from the puppy.

We cover all costs including veterinary fees and food and equipment are provided.

If you would like to get involved in this rewarding role and can commit to training a puppy to be a life line to a child with autism and their family, then we would love to hear from you.
