Rescuing, rehabilitating, training & giving abandoned dogs a future and second chance. While waiting for their furever homes to find them the foster dogs live in a home environment with all the luxuries they could only have dreamt of & most definitely deserve.
Hope Dog Rescue has taken in many dogs who otherwise had no options, most of these from the pound system & a few by way of private surrender, many of these animals had behavioural issues & were not suited to the average foster carer & needed someone who knew how to bring out the best in them . Many of the dogs were just stressed in the pound environment & changed into a different dog overnight once in a home environment, some took longer & some turned into projects. They have all gone on to beautiful homes that have welcomed them as part of the family & update to this day.
The foster dogs are fed a range of quality raw & cooked products tailored to their individual needs. Some of the foods fed are Ziwipeak. K9natural, balanced life, frontier pets, vets all natural grain free mixed with human grade only meat....cooked chicken breast with pumpkin & prime 1000 crocodile rolls for the very senior dogs & those who do better on cooked. Raw bones are also fed & human grade. Their days consist of lazing around inside on the many comfortable dog beds & occasionally exploring the yard, some are walked each day as well.
The dogs live in a, air conditioned environment inside my home alongside my own dogs & have access to this 24/7. They have someone home with them every day to supervise them & of course we all end up in the lounge room each night. They are part of the family & experience the life they should have previously. The biggest thrill is to watch them transform & share their journey on the way to a new beginning.
. My philosophy is that it takes as long as it takes to find the right home for each & every dog.In the meantime while they wait I take the role of caretaker very seriously & provide them stability & a soft landing.
Having been a dog trainer, instructor & successful obedience competitor with German Shepherds for 15 years has given a good base to help these guys & they have in turn taught me so much more than you can begin to imagine. When you adopt from Hope dog rescue rescue you are provide support now & years down the track if needed to the people who adopt from Hope Dog Rescue.
