Darwin arrived into Rain’s care a couple of months ago it was clear from the start he was a poorly boy. We weren’t sure if he’d make it and to say it’s been touch and go at some points would be pretty accurate. BUT this boys amazing temperament and affectionate nature shines through and we knew we had to try all we could for him.

We’ve got Darwin so far but kennels makes giving this boy the best chance at recovery really hard so we are desperately appealing for a foster home to help this boy on his road to recovery.

If you are kind, caring and have a love for dogs with a bit of spare time on your hands Darwin needs you.

Fostering a dog – what’s involved?

  • looking after a dog in your home temporarily until a permanent loving new home can be found.

  • caring for their basic, medical and behavioural needs.

  • taking the dog to and from vet appointments (our vets are based in Rotherham).

  • taking the dog to and from viewing appointments (at our centre in Rotherham).

​What we are looking for?

  • experience in handling and caring for dogs.

  • living in close proximity to the centre with suitable transport to be able to attend appointments.

  • a private and fully secure garden is needed for fostering dogs.

  • willingness to learn and follow Rain Rescue procedures and policies.

Benefits to you

  • knowing you are helping homeless pets in need.

  • enjoyment of having a pet without the long term and financial commitments.

  • develop new skills.

  • join a great team of like minded people.

  • all medical, food and equipment costs can be covered and provided by Rain Rescue.

GOOD WITH DOGS – Possibly, with steady introductions
