FOSTER HOMES URGENTLY NEEDED!

These are people who are prepared to look after a dog in their own home for as long as it takes us to find permanent and loving homes. This could be a matter of days, weeks or even a few months but it gives us a chance to assess the needs of the particular dog e.g. can he/she live with another dog, older children, cats, etc. It also provides us with an opportunity to check the health of the dog and to vaccinate, micro-chip and neuter.

William’s story

We were blessed the day William came into our lives 2 years ago, what a special boy he is! William is about 8 years old now and his story is a sad one, no longer wanted by his owner he was handed in to Sussex Pet Rescue as a stray.

Jumping Up

Generally speaking, a dog’s purpose in jumping up is to get our attention. The problems with jumping up usually start when we first bring our new dog home, particularly puppies. We want our dog to like us and its new home. We want it to feel happy and wanted and not miss its mum or its brothers and sisters. So when it jumps up at us we tolerate it because it seems so pleased to see us and that gives us a good feeling.

Wiley’s story

We are very grateful to Pat for adopting Wiley and taking her on with her existing heath conditions, we were looking for a very special home for Wiley as she is a very special girl.

Rufus

We rehomed our lovely boy Rufus in May this year. What a smashing little dog he is. He took to his new surroundings very quickly and loves cuddling up to anyone who sits on the sofa. I know, it’s disgraceful isn’t it!

Rocky

Rocky is a 6 year old Terrier adopted by a lady in January.

Kevin

We had been looking a dog for about a year before we found Kevin. We didn’t want to rush as we knew the right dog was out their waiting for us. We are first time dog owners so it was all a bit daunting. Jasmin (age 13) was constantly looking at all the rehoming websites when she spotted Kevin. At this time my husband still wasn’t too keen on the idea but agreed to visit him at his foster home in Lancing. We were all excited but I was keeping an open mind.
