Photographers wanted

We are looking for keen photographers to help us to promote our foster dogs. We know that great photos are crucial for getting people to engage with our lovely foster dogs. But it's not always easy to photograph your dog and get it to pose too!

So, we would love to hear from you if you would be willing to spare a couple of hours to take some photos of some stunning dogs, creating interesting backgrounds. You would get to know some wonderful dogs and fosterers and you never know you might be tempted to adopt too...

The map below shows the postcode areas where we currently have fosters and are in need of assistance.

If you can help please email


We are looking for images that capture the dog in a few different ways:

  • Dog close-ups
  • Dog interacting with people

  • All photos in JPG format
  • Please submit at full camera resolution - we will downscale as required
  • Aspect ratio: 16:9 (or 4:3 but not square)

  • Please don't crop images - we will crop if required
