***Please note we will be taking applications only for Marta in the first instance & will be looking for the ideal placement for her & her needs. Once the selection process is concluded we will contact the successful candidate to come along & meet Marta. ****

Marta has been a long term resident at the centre who has also spent time in a foster home. Although she has some anxiety issues when she knows she can trust you she is a very loving and friendly girl

Due to her special circumstances we are initially seeking a foster family for her on-going rehabilitation. Our chosen fosterers must live within 30-40 minutes from the centre and be willing to keep written records of her progress and maintain a close liaison with our centre staff and dedicated behaviourist. If all goes well then full adoption can take place.

Marta had a difficult start to her life which has resulted in her being fearful, of some people, other dogs and some situations, including being left on her own, Much work has been undertaken to help her cope with this and there has been significant progress. More needs to be done and it is imperative for her wellbeing that it is continued,

Marta is on prescribed medication (supplied by the centre) and the fosterer will be required to dispense these to her, under our direction. It is hoped to wean her off these medications whilst she is in foster care and when she is more settled.

Full guidance will be given to any fosterer willing to undertake Marta’s care, up to and including behaviourist visits if required.

Due to her special requirements we recommend an adult only family with no other pets.

Also a garden is a must for her as she finds new environments stressful & initially needs to build confidence in her own environment with her new people before venturing out into the wider world.

Marta is not keen on travelling in a car.

** Due to covid-19 restrictions & the fact Marta will need several meets prior to leaving us & staff will need to visit her in the early days in foster we are unable to facilitate her foster/ adoption. We have sent Marta back to her origional foster home where she will stay until we can return to normal operating.**

Due to limited staff & volunteers we ask that if you do not meet the criteria outlined for Marta that you do not apply for her as we do not have the time to respond to everyone. Due to the huge interest in Marta people who apply but do not meet the criteria may not get a response.
