RSPCA volunteer Foster Carers provide temporary homes for animals that are not yet ready for adoption into a new, permanent home.
Puppies or kittens too young to be desexed and needing protection from adult animal diseases.
Special Needs cases, such as older animals suffering from conditions like starvation, who just need a quiet place to recover before going to a new home. More experienced and specialist foster carers can volunteer to care for animals that have been through a traumatic experience.
Pets in Crisis—domestic violence animals who need short-term refuge with foster carers while the home situation is resolved, or animals being held and cared for as the subject of a prosecution
Pet Legacy animals if a new, permanent home cannot immediately found following the death of their owner.
More foster carers are always needed! Foster carers are especially important between November and January when around 300 kittens are brought into our shelters each month.
RSPCA provides ongoing training and help, as well as paying for food, equipment and any medical treatment needed while the animal is in your care.
