Salisbury Dog's Trust need help.

The Trust need new foster carers for dogs for post-Covid surge.

The animal shelter has announced that it needs help with foster carers for dogs as ir prepares for the post-Covid surge. It has had an increase in demand of 62% during the pandemic alone which means that as families circumstances start to change there may be a need for family Dog's to need re homing. 

A spokesperson from the trust has said, "it is seeing the full impact of lockdown puppies" coming into the trusts care. The trust are looking for volunteers that are able to offer the puppies and dog's a home if they are at hime for the most part of the day. 

Emma Sainsbury, the home from home coordinator at the trust had said: "Whilst we are seeing some dogs being handed in to us that were purchased during lockdown, we are yet to see the full impact of so-called 'lockdown puppies' coming into our care. 

"This may be because businesses are still being supported by the furlough scheme, people are still working from home and lockdown restrictions continue.

"But we fear the worst is yet to come and we will see more people giving up their dog if families struggle to cope with the fallout of the coronavirus crisis."
