Our Support Dogs and You

There are lots of ways to get involved with Support Dogs, as well as fundraising you can become a foster carer, or give a retired dog a new home, or help us find new dogs looking for a career change. You’ll find information below about our super Support Dogs.

Fostering

We need foster carers for our dogs when they aren’t in school. This might be evenings and weekend, or full time while a dog awaits training. To find out more visit our foster carers page

Recruiting New Dogs

At Support Dogs we do not have our own breeding programme so our dogs come to us from a variety of places; from other charity’s breeding programmes, from family pets and from rehoming centres. If you have a dog you think might be a super Support Dog click here for more information.

Retired Dogs

Our  dogs like a nice quiet retirement, could you offer one a home? When they have finished working many of our dogs remain with their families, but for some of our clients continuing to care for their dog, or caring for two dogs, is too much, in these cases we find our dogs a loving home where they can relax. Find out more about offering a home to a retired Support Dog here.

Sponsoring Support Dogs

If you’d like to care for one of our dogs but haven’t got the space, or live outside of the required area, you can help support our work but sponsoring one of our dogs. You’ll get pictures and a soft toy when you sign up and regular updates on how your dogs is doing. And you’ll be helping us to train more dogs and transform more lives. Click here to sponsor your dog.
