Fostering is one of the most needed and greatly rewarding volunteer experiences.

We would love to hear from you if you have space in your life and home for a cat in need.

Why foster?

  • Fostering enables people to have animals in their lives, but without the full-time commitment or costs.

  • It is rewarding to care for cats in need of help and see them go on to be successfully rehomed.
  • For those willing to take rehabilitation cases, fostering helps cats going through medical recovery, resolving behavioural problems or in need of socialization.

  • You will interact with like-minded individuals who share the same passion for helping animals.

What’s involved?

  • Providing a safe and loving environment.
  • We provide you with everything the cats in your care need including food, litter, equipment and the cost of veterinary treatment.

  • Caring for the needs of cats in your care and giving your time and attention to socialize and get to know them. This will help us find them the right forever homes.

  • Taking the cats in your care to veterinary appointments.

  • You will be supported by a team of experienced volunteers.

Criteria for fostering

  • Patience, understanding and unconditional love.
  • Previous experience of caring for cats.

  • Never have been banned from keeping animals in any country.

  • A secure spare room away from busier parts of your home to support the cats in your care with gaining confidence at their own pace.
