Can you offer a foster home?
Fostering is such an important role within the Animal Care Team. So many of the animals that come in to the branch care have been through awful ordeals and sometimes they do not settle well in the cattery and/or kennel environment so we look to place them with a foster family until they are rehabilitated and can be rehomed.
Other animals that we prioritise our foster care for is for expectant or nursing mothers, young animals that need hand rearing (or that extra bit of TLC) and those that have had an operation and/or need medical care whilst they are on the mend!
Each time a new animal needs foster care, we always ask the foster carers if they are able to take the animal on, giving full details of their situation, the care needed whilst with them and the expected duration it will be for. This way the fosterers can commit to taking an animal on ONLY when it fits in with their lifestyle/plans.
We will provide you with all of the food and care items that the animal needs during its stay with you and all vets fees will be covered by the branch directly with the vets.
