I have been fundraising for Futures for Dogs since 2006. Futures for Dogs is a small non-profit making voluntary charity rescue in Kent. Over the years I have watched and supported the fabulous work that goes on. Taking a dog called Zippy, who arrived with broken legs that had been left to heal of their own accord, which meant he could not walk, and after much fundraising and Veterinary treatment he was transformed into a walking dog again, and rehomed into his forever home. Seeing unwanted pregnant bitches come in that have been used for repeated breeding, see the mum safely rehomed and her pups. I've also seen the sad side to the rescue, the dogs and pups that were too ill to survive but they knew love from Futures for Dogs before they made their final journey. Fortunately there are more happy outcomes than sad ones. Many dogs find their forever home through Futures for Dogs. Every home is home checked, each dog leaves, wormed, vaccinated, flea treated, neutered/spayed, socialised and happy. Every new owner knows there is help on the end of the phone should they run into difficulties. 

Futures for Dogs are constantly looking for people in the Kent, UK area to Foster. If you are interested, an application form for Fostering can be obtained by e-mailing once your application has been assesed and if you are successful you will hear back. Fostering is an essential part of the rescue. The more dogs that can be fostered, the more dogs can be removed from unpleasant situations e.g. pounds, abuse, puppy farms and brought in. 

Futures for Dogs is always looking for volunteer drivers, either to do transport runs to collect dog and pups from pick up points, or to take to the Vet,  or bring home from the Vet, or for driving to and from Events, which Futures for Dogs relies heavily on for fundraising to pay Vet bills. If you feel you can help out in this way then please e-mail

Supporters and volunteers are the lifeblood of Futures for Dogs whether it be to stand and do a street collection, or organise a coffee morning to donate much needed funds, all help is appreciated. If you feel you can spare any amount of time, or want to hold a fundraiser of your own, where ever you happen to be, all is very much appreciated. Funds can be donated to Futures for Dogs Paypal account -
