NWESSR needs volunteers...

E-mail Print PDF

NWESSR are always looking for Volunteers to help with successfully finding the right homes for our much beloved breed. It doesn’t matter how little or how much time you can give, this will always be appreciated by the dogs that are in need.

For new owners or previous NWESSR owners who are unsure if they would like to take on another rescue? ……. Short term fostering might be for you, fostering can be an overnight stay to staying until they have found their forever home; the choice is down to the individual and all Vets treatment and medical needs are taken care for by NWESSR. All we ask in return is that you can give us a fortnightly or weekly report on how the dog is doing and if you have any concerns - this can be done via email or with a computer friendly report which will be available on the website.

Research has suggested that dogs who are surrendered into rescue and go into a home environment adjust far better than dogs placed in a kennel environment. The home environment reduces the stress and regular exercise, interaction with people and showing the dog structure, love and give a cuddle can only be a positive experience for the dog.

This is what some of the NWESSR foster carers have said about fostering;

“What I like about short term fostering is the different dogs I welcome into my home, sometimes it is anxious, fretful and distressed, but after a few days they settle down and then their personalities start to come out and their individuality starts to shine through.

The best of all is when the new owners meets the dog and both go away very happy for a bright future”. James Roscoe short term fosters

“We chose to do short-term fostering to provide a temporary home whist the dog is waiting for their forever home. All our foster dogs have been very different and every single one make you laugh at some point during their stay. But when they go off to their new homes for us that’s the most rewarding part”. Vicki and Pete short term fosters.

“Fostering is a very rewarding experience to watch a springer that lacks confidence, to become a happy confident dog, going to their forever home”. Rachel and Stephen Wannell

NWESSR are also looking for volunteers in other areas, including pre-adoption checks, dog taxis and assisting with surrendering. All of these roles are invaluable to the everyday running of NWESSR.

Do you have any ideas on how to raise funds or to promote NWESSR, or would like to volunteer? If you feel you can only spare a few hours why not come along to next year’s major event … our Fun day which is being held on June 28th 2015 and you could help us in the smooth running of this NWESSR major fundraising event.

If you would like know more please contact the Volunteer coordinator via email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
