The branch urgently needs a local person/people who are able to foster kittens in their homes, often at short notice. We are also in desperate need of fosterers for adult cats recovering from their operations.
The temporary home is needed for adult cats, or a single kitten or a litter who are far too young to stay in the cattery while they wait for family to come along to give them a new home. Sometimes a these babies may be recovering from an illness so will need special round the clock care.
If we don’t have foster spaces we are unable to take in really young kittens in need, so we are appealing for local people who have the space and availability to volunteer for this important role.
As an emergency fosterer you may be called upon to offer space in your home at short notice, you will be given as much information about your temporary guest/s as possible and full support is provided. Your own transport is not necessary as other volunteers will be able to transport the cat or kitten to vet appointments and meetings with potential adopters. All you need is the space, patience, time and of course the ability to provide love and care to a young animal who really needs it.
Even if you can only foster a single young cat or a couple of kittens, if you would like to help and want to know more please get in touch as a matter of urgency.
