Could you foster a cat with nursing needs?

Posted in Branch News and Updates, Special Appeals | Comments Off

We are urgently seeking a foster carer for Bobbie, a little stray cat with a severe ear infection which will need nursing care once his ear has been operated on.   Bobbie will need ear drops twice a day and must wear a cone collar to prevent him scratching the stitches and the open wound.   If you could help and live within easy travelling distance of Mossley where the vet who will be overseeing his treatment is based we’d love to hear from you.

He will need his cone for at least 10 days and probably anaesthetising to have his stitches removed.   Following a successful outcome of this procedure he will then have to have his teeth cleaned and probably several removed.   So this will be at least a couple of months foster placement.

All his food, cat litter, bedding and a cage if needed will be provided by the branch.

small-insp-and-kitten The branch is looking for a Cat fostering Support Officer who will help to recruit volunteer cat and kitten fosterers and support them in their role.    As a support officer you will be expected to visit each fosterer who has cat(s) and/or kitten(s) in their care on a weekly basis and distribute food and supplies and check on the health of the animals.

Full training will be given by vets at the RSPCA’s Animal Hospital.

Please note that this is not a paid position and could be undertaken by someone in full or part time work, not employed or retired as long as you are able to accept emergency texts or phone calls from fosterers during working hours.  You will not be asked to foster cats/kittens for the branch yourself. Mileage and other out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.

Donate much needed food and equipment

Posted in Branch News and Updates, Special Appeals | Comments Off

As the branch often fosters puppies, kittens and cats and dog with extra TLC needs we gratefully accept donated food and other much needed items directly to the branch.  This is a great alternative to cash donations for those who prefer to give to the branch in this way.  We are in need of the following:

  • Cat litter
  • Kitten and adult cat food
  • Puppy and adult dog food
  • Dog coats
  • Dog leads
  • Toys and various other comforts

Your gifts will benefit RSPCA animals who have suffered at the hands of their previous owners and are being rehabilitated by our volunteer dog walkers and cat socialisers.

Food, beds and cat litter etc will help to feed and provide warmth and comfort to those who are too young or sick to be rehomed from the cattery or kennels and are being cared for by fosterers in their own homes.
