Could you offer a pooch a safe environment? Group pleading for more dog fosterers
A rescue organisation in Norfolk is pleading for dog fosterers amid rising waiting lists, saying they can’t "do it without them".
East Coast Pet Rescue does not use kennels so when an animal comes into its care, fosterers are needed to provide an interim home.
Fosterers are vital in creating a "safe environment" and looking after rescued dogs before they find their forever home.
Two dogs came into the rescue group's care on Wednesday morning after a week in which the centre took in seven dogs and 13 cats.
There is also a rising waiting list of animals who need East Coast Pet Rescue’s help as many pet owners are struggling amid the cost of living crisis.
The rescue group has rehomed 400 animals since it was set up just over two years ago by Sarah Evans and Faye Howard.

Ms Evans believes fosterers give a "better assessment of the animal within that environment and can give their honest opinion".
Fosterers need to be experienced and have an appropriate area for the new dog to live away from other pets.
East Coast Pet Rescue is also looking for cat fosterers.
