I would think by finding out different rescues in your area you would have no trouble. Rescues are always looking for foster homes.

Check with the local shelter/rescues in your area, it is very rewarding work and they are always desperate for foster homes, never know you may prevent a perfectly healthy dog from being euthanized :thumbs up;)

Thank you for being a generous canine helper :thumbs up
There are several rescue groups in and around London. We actually got Molly from ABCR (see below).
The two most popular ones are
All Breed Canine Rescue (ABCR) (http://members.petfinder.com/~ON229/MAIN.html)
They are urgently looking for a foster home for this guy

I would suggest contacting shelters and rescues,and looking at their mission statements.Do they spay and neuter all animals before adoption,including pups?If not,they add to dogs or cats being euthanized.Do they help locally,or do they import dogs?Do they microchip?What is their policy on euthanasia?Do they take their dogs back when adoptions fail?Do they have references from local and other shelters that work with them?
