Provide a loving home to one of our Dogs for Good mum’s

Our Breed Stock Holders provide an essential role in helping to raise our future life-changing dogs.  We need volunteers who can provide a loving and supportive home for one of our broods (the mum of our Dogs for Good puppies) and her new litters duirng the first eight weeks of their lives.

We’ll support and guide you to enable you to provide the care for all her needs, from everyday life, throughout her pregnancy and while she cares for her litters.  Our broods are all golden retriever or Labradors and are typically placed with a volunteer at around 18 months of age.  Most of our broods will have 3 to 4 litters of puppies.


Although no experience is necessary as support and training will be provided, our Breed Stock Holders are required to meet the following criteria:

  • Ideally you should live within 30 – 40 minutes drive of Banbury
  • Be a dog lover with a calm and caring disposition
  • Have facilities to enable the brood to give birth in comfort
  • Be in a position to devote time to the brood i.e. not in full-time employment
  • Be willing to transport the brood to and from The Frances Hay Centre in Banbury.
