URGENT: Friends of the Hound’s foster network is near full capacity with dogs already on the waiting list to enter the program.

Cat-free foster homes are urgently required.

In light of recent events they are expecting a large amount of dogs to need foster care in the coming weeks and months.

New foster homes are urgently required. If you have been considering fostering or adopting a dog please have a think about doing it now.

Now really is the time to act and get as many dogs as possible out of this terrible industry and into loving homes.


About Foster Caring for Friends of the Hound

The foster carer’s role involves providing a temporary home while the greyhound transitions from their old racing life to a loving family pet.

You will be exposing these greyhounds to living in a house, the joy of walking for fun and socialising with other animals… The gorgeous greyhounds get to live and learn about life as a pet, while being prepared for a normal life in a permanent home.

Not only does the greyhound benefit from your decision of becoming a foster carer, you will benefit from the companionship and satisfaction and the best part is that the Friends of the Hound organisation will be able to save more greyhound lives!
