Long term fostering

Longterm Fostering

At Epsom Canine Rescue we also offer Long term Fostering, this enables the dog to be in a home with ongoing additional support from the rescue. We desperately need more foster homes and will always look to match a suitable dog with you. We provide any equipment needed, plus any veterinary fees are paid.

We do not look for weekend or short-term foster placements as this can be very disruptive for our dogs.

If you are interested in fostering dogs, please complete our fostering application form.

Below are some of the dogs currently being fostered or under long term care at HQ.

Hello, my names Indie. I came into ECR from the pound and was finding kennel life quite distressing and making me quite anxious. Sadly I've been diagnosed with a heart condition, aortic stenosis and slow heart rate. I am the most affectionate girl and love both people and tennis balls and will let you know when I want to play or get some yummy treats. Due to my condition I will stay in end of life foster at HQ as its possible I could go into heart failure at any time. The lovely people at ECR monitor me 24hrs a day making sure I don't get to excited.
