Fostering Our Animals
The majority of animals rehomed by the PAWS Centre spend their time with us in the kennel or cattery, but some special cases need the extra care and attention of a fosterer before they are ready to be rehomed.
We are always looking for new fosterers to give a temporary home to cats and dogs that are ill, recovering from surgery, afraid of people, pregnant, nursing or just too young to leave us.
What support is available?
All potential fosterers are home-visited by the Branch and are supported whilst caring for our animals. Food, litter and vet bills and any other necessary items are all met if required.
Our Animal Care Team are also available to answer any questions you may have whilst you are caring for one of our animals.
What do I need to be a Fosterer?
If you would like to be considered as a fosterer, you will need to be home part of the day and have your own transport. You must be prepared to drop-off and collect animals and supplies at the centre and also there may be an occassional visit to the vets.
Becoming a fosterer for the RSPCA is a really rewarding voluntary role - you will have a direct impact on animals that need the special care of a loving home.
