Puppy Love

Our foster carers received an urgent call for help with a litter of high-need puppies, only days old. Unfortunately they came into the shelter without their mum, and needed round the clock carers to act as their substitute mothers.

During this time of year, newborn pups and kittens are often surrendered into our shelters without their mothers. This is where our team of foster carers step forward to take on role of mum or dad, providing food, help with toileting and giving them a warm, safe place.

The hardest part of being a foster carer is not getting up every two hours to bottle feed, but developing a connection and then watching them go onto their new homes. There are always a few happy tears when you become a foster carer.
