Fostering

We would love it if you could share this page...

Foster Carer / Volunteer registration form
  • Some of the dogs and cats in our care take a while to find a forever home. Some have ongoing medical conditions, some need socialising, some are old or have injuries.
  • We rely heavily on the generosity of people who are prepared to offer a temporary home to one (or more) of the animals in our care.
  • We need more people willing to open up their homes to dogs and cats looking for a fresh start in life.
  • When animals are taken into a foster home it must be remembered that this could be for a few days, a few weeks or even months. When a dog or cat has been in a foster home for whatever reason it is unfair to then return that dog or cat to the shelter to have to, once again, adjust to the life there.
  • When you foster a dog or cat you’ll be freeing up space in our shelter so that we can rescue more animals in desperate need.
  • Animal fostering is an important role. It plays a vital part in the rehabilitation of animals and helps improve their chances of finding a new home.
  • Many of the animals we take in either have suffered or are not used to the care and affection they deserve. Living with a foster family helps them to adjust to one-to-one care, allowing them to build up their confidence and get used to a normal lifestyle.
  • Other animals don’t cope well in a shelter environment. This is where we need people to take them in to provide them with a real home, even if it is only on a temporary basis.
  • Fostering animals can be a really pleasurable and rewarding experience.
  • It also provides an alternative option for people who are unable or unwilling to take in an animal on a long-term basis.
  • All fosterers are responsible for the welfare of the animal in their care.
  • We will help with the cost of food and medication in appropriate cases. We will provide whatever other practical support may be required.
  • And we are at the end of the phone if there are any difficulties.
