❤URGENT FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME NEEDED FOR DESTINY❤

DESTINY IS OUR DOG OF THE MONTH THIS JUNE 💚 


SHE IS A SMALL STAFFORDSHIRE BULL TERRIER CROSS BREED AGED 9 YEARS. 


DESTINY HAD A REALLY BAD START TO LIFE, SHE WAS PASSED AROUND FROM PILLAR TO POST FOR THE FIRST 6 YEARS OF HER LIFE, SHE WASNT SOCIALISED WITH OTHER ANIMALS OR PEOPLE MEANING EVERY HOME SHE WENT TO GAVE UP ON HER. 


A DOG's TALE WAS MADE AWARE OF DESTINYS PLEA WHEN A VERY KIND LADY STEPPED INTO HER LIFE AND VOWED TO HELP HER. 


SHE TOOK DESTINY IN EVEN WITH MULTIPLE DOGS OF HER OWN, SHE HAD TRIED EVERY THING TO FIND DESTINY A RESCUE PLACEMENT BUT SADLY HAD NO LUCK BECAUSE OF HER LACK OF SOCIAL SKILLS SHE NEDED ALOT OF WORK,


OUR FOUNDER NICOLA SAW DESTINYS PLEA AND OFFERED HER A SPACE WITH US, 

SHE SPENT 1 MONTH IN EMERGENCY BOARDING KENNELS THEN WENT OFF TO 'DOGGY BOOT CAMP' FOR 6 MONTHS WHERE SHE WAS WORKED WITH ON HER DOG AGGRESSION AND HER SOCIAL SKILLS WITH PEOPLE,


ONCE SHE HAD FINISED HER DOGGY BOOT CAMP SHE WENT TO NICOLA AT HER KENNELS WHERE SHE HAS CONTINUED TO WORK WITH HER, 


SHE HAS NOW BEEN WITH NICOLA FOR 16 MONTHS WAITING FOR HER NEW HOME MEANING SHE HAS SPENT A TOTAL OF 23 MONTHS IN KENNELS! 💔 


DESTINY IS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL DOG WITH SO MUCH LOVE TO GIVE! SHE IS LOYAL, SHE IS EAGER TO PLEASE, SHE IS LOVING, PLAYFUL, ENERGETIC, ALL IN ALL SHE IS A FANTASTIC LITTLE GIRL! 


SHE DOES NEED A PET FREE HOME AS SHE IS STILL SELECTIVE WITH DOGS.

SHE WILL NEED A HOME WTH CHILDREN AGED 10 YEARS + AS SHE IS STILL BOUNCY AND COULD KNOCK SMALL CHILDREN OVER ACCIDENTLY WHEN PLAYING.

TESTIMONIAL BY LISA (FOSTER FAMILY)

I had the pleasure of fostering for A Dogs Tale. A very professional rescue that were always there for support if needed. Would definitely recommend fostering for this amazing rescue who go above and beyond for the dogs in their care x

TESTIMONIAL BY DAWN (ADOPTER OF HER FOSTER DOG BELLA)

I fostered for A Dogs Tale, couldn't recommend them highly enough. Had so much support and encouragement throughout and they are very professional and thorough.  It's so clear how much these ladies genuinely love and care   for the dogs in their care. Even after their dogs are adopted and get a forever home A Dogs Tale still support them and their new owners whenever needed. Amazing rescue 😍 xx

TESTIMONIAL BY KELI (FOSTER CARER)

I fostered for A Dogs Tale and I cannot praise this rescue enough, nor can I fault them. They are professional, supportive, and caring for all the dogs that come in. They go out their way for the dog, the fosters and the families looking to adopt, they go above and beyond each and every day. They’re the first rescue I recommend to people looking to adopt, a rescue who caters to both the foster and future homes needs and the dogs needs. The most genuine ladies you could find to run a rescue, they will always be number 1 and a top rescue.

COMMON QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Q. Do i have to pay an adoption donation? 


A. Yes, there is a standard adoption donation for all dog's available for adoption.


Q. Do i have to pay a donation to foster? 


A. No, we never charge to foster, all we ask is that you provide a vital stepping stone for our dogs in their journey to finding their forever home. 


Q. Do A DOG's TALE cover vet costs for dog's in foster? 


A. Yes, we cover all vet costs for dogs in foster homes.


Q. Do i get the option to adopt my foster dog if he/she fit well into my home/family? 


A. Yes, before we advertise a dog for adoption we give their foster families 'first refusal' if you decide to adopt your foster dog our standard adoption donation will apply. 


Q. Why are all the dogs neutered? 


A. All of our dogs are neutered for two reasons, neutering has many health benefits but it also ensures none of our dogs are used for breeding purpose. 

We promote responsible dog ownership, part of this is ensuring all of our dogs are neutered prior to rehoming and educating the public about responsible ownership and the importance of neutering our furry friends ☺
