Are you considering owning a new puppy or dog?

If you are, you can support the charity Medical Detection Dogs by fostering puppies or dogs that are working on pioneering projects to detect the odour of human disease.

Medical Detection Dogs has a strict ‘no kennel’ policy and every one of our Bio Detection Dogs lives in a safe, loving, home environment.

If you would like to consider fostering you should live within a five-mile radius of Great Horwood, be prepared for a long-term commitment and be able to bring the dog into work at 8.30am and collect at 4.00pm. Ideally you will have previous experience with dogs and be confident in handling these highly energetic, motivated animals, however dog training will be provided as required.

Fosterers are provided with all the necessary help, food, equipment and veterinary care and holiday cover is provided when you go away.

If you are interested and want to learn more about becoming a fosterer – please contact Helen Bliss: [email protected] – 01296 655888
