There are many ways to get involved with helping us here at Balkan Underdogs, from hands-on volunteer, to organising your own exciting fundraiser!
In addition to needing donations, we are always looking for people who can foster our dogs (especially the long termers as this always helps them to find homes), perform home checks on potential new adopters, and of course, helping us in the admin team
Foster a dog
Fostering is one of the most useful ways to help. In addition to freeing up a much needed kennel or pension space, you will be dramatically improving the dogs' chance of adoption! It is a hugely rewarding role and we assist you every step of the way. You won't have to pay for transport to the UK or anything other than food and 'home comforts' that you choose. We will cover any necessary vet bills and help the dog to find their forever home. You can join our support network on Facebook and will be welcomed into the BU family. Be warned, 'failed fosters' are always welcome when you find that your foster pup is part of the family! To find out more about becoming Fostering click here, or get in touch if you would like to find out more.
Become a home checker
BU receives hundreds of applications and, sadly, not all homes are suitable. In order to give our dogs the best lives in the UK we need to be sure they are going to the right home. A paper application only tells us so much about the home offered so we need our volunteers to pop around to local prospective adopters and run through our preset checklist. You'll never be asked to travel across the country (unless you want to) and it will be up to you to arrange a mutually convenient time with the adopter. We will support you as part of the team and ensure you feel confident performing the home check. It's a really nice way to meet local dog owners (and soon to be BU family)! Drop us an email expressing your interest in helping to home check.
Funds are always tight in dog rescue - it costs £30 a month to secure a space in private kennels per dog and then there is the cost of food, veterinary treatment, worming, tick & flea treatment and more!
