Volunteer guide Dog Foster’s needed

Appealing once again for more foster homes, there has been a positive response but need one final push to find some more volunteers…..
Could you give a future guide dog a loving home? We are looking for two volunteer foster homes in Wick to take part in a 12-month trial to determine the feasibility of training in the area.
Our volunteer fosterers provide a guide dog in training with a safe and comfortable environment to relax after a busy day training. It is a rewarding opportunity, as you will be looking after a future guide dog in your home.
Our trainer will pick up and drop off the dog from your home four days a week. For the remaining three days, including the weekend, the dog will stay with you all day.
We are also looking for two respite foster homes to provide temporary cover when our full-time fosterers are on holiday or otherwise unable to look after the dog for a short period.
Guide Dogs provide exceptional training and encouragement throughout your volunteering journey and will pay all pre-agreed expenses.
For those interested in either of the above roles please contact Aaron.Puckrin@guidedogs.org.uk for more information.
