BECOMING A FOSTER CARER

One of the best ways to help animals in need

Grey Cat

Being a foster carer is one of the most rewarding ways to help animals in our community. By fostering, you're allowing us as a rescue to take on and help more animals in need. You will be supported every step of the way by our foster coordinators. You will be provided with a foster starter pack that covers all aspects of foster care.

As a foster carer, you will be provided with most things you will need for your foster pet. This includes bedding, bowls, litter trays and toys. Also, all veterinary work is paid for. Your role as a foster carer is to teach your fosters unconditional love, to keep them comfortable and safe until they are ready for adoption. As a foster carer it is your responsibility to provide food (donations are often available, but not always).

 

To make sure potential carers are paired with animals that suit their needs, we ask that you please fill out our below questionnaire. Once we receive your application, we will get in contact with you to arrange a house inspection. We do this as we need to know our animals are being housed safely. During the house inspection, we will make sure you have secure fencing and no noxious plants are in your home or backyard.
