JoJo's journey to Connemara
We often need kind people with a bit of spare time to temporarily look after a dog or cat until a permanent home can be found. Dogs and cats that arrive in rescue may have been ill-treated, neglected or just not wanted anymore. They need lots of patience and a home environment is the best place to help them feel secure and learn how to trust again. Fostering a dog or cat is a practical way to help us out.
All we ask is that you have a reasonable secure garden and you can be at home for most of the day, usually preferable for dogs to be placed in a family where children are over 12 years. We cover expenses if you can provide a bed, some exercise and love and kindness.
If you'd like to know more, you can speak to John or Irene or call 087 646 4389 -Thanks!!
