Fostering Saves Lives

Why we need more foster carers?

Unlike some of the bigger rescue groups Hear No Evil doesn't have it's own physical shelter so depends solely on foster carers to open their heart and home to a dog in need

Why you should consider fostering a dog?

If you aren't in a position to adopt, then fostering can be one of the most rewarding experiences you can have.  By opening your heart and your home to a dog in need temporarily you are:

  • opening up a spot for our Hear No Evil to rescue another deaf or special needs dog.
  • giving your foster dog the time it needs to be ready for adoption, whether thats while its waiting for vet work or ensuring his basic training is up to scratch.
  • providing valuable feed back to rescue group about your foster dogs personality, likes and dislikes so they can perfectly match him/her to the best suited forever family.
  • helpling socialize your foster dog to a home environement and getting them use to being around different types of people and other pets.

What do I need to do as a foster carer?

  • Provide a safe, comfortable and healthy environment. A yard check will be conducted to ensure the safety and security of potential foster dogs.
  • Commit to to looking after the dog for however long it takes to find their perfect forever home. This may take a week or a year!
  • Supply adequate bedding, food and water.
  • Commit to exercising and socialising your foster dog in such a way that creates a positive and well tempered dog.
  • Provide basic training such as sit, stay, down as well as some house manners like not jumping up on visitors, all the things that will help our deaf dogs get adopted quicker.
  • Be available from time to time, to bring your foster dog to events and activities, including adoption days where dogs are brought out for public viewing.
  • Provide updates and photos of your foster dog that will be used to create a profile of your foster dog.

We take care of all medical expenses, flea/worming treatment, basic obedience training associate with your foster dog.  

We won't lie, it can be difficult at times but we will be with your every step of the way providing you with whatever support you need.  There is no better feeling than knowing that you had a hand in giving a deaf dog a second chance of  finding a safe and loving forever home.
