Foster Care

When we talk about the animals in our care, people automatically think about the animals in our shelters or Care Centres. But behind the this public face there is a network of Foster Carers temporarily looking after animals that are not ready for, or who are not coping well in, the shelter environment. This may be because the animal is too young for adoption, recovering from surgery, or simply needs a home environment while waiting for their furever family.

Our wonderful Foster Carers say they find incredible rewards from being part of the process that gives animals a second chance. They receive full support from us, including training and supplies. If you’d like to know more about foster caring, visit our website:
