AAPS FOSTER CARE
WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF FOSTER CARERS!
Due to the reduced capacity at our temporary site, there is an increased urgency to enlist as many dedicated foster care volunteers as possible.
We are always in need of new volunteer foster carers who can provide temporary accommodation for cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, rabbits, and guinea pigs.
Each individual foster case will vary and may range from two weeks up to three months.
Please fill in the form below to register your interest in fostering.

time - to care for needs, socialisation, and feeding
a secure spare room

own transport and able to travel to pick up a foster animal or seek veterinary attention if required
a stable home environment
own pets (if any) are de-sexed, vaccinated, and proven to be social with other animals
long-term commitment is ideal but we understand that a trial may be required before committing
feed, groom, socialise, and provide all round care for the animal

SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION:
Fill in the application form, the more information provided the better. We will get back to you to conduct an informal telephone interview.
You can apply to foster both cats, dogs, rabbits, and guinea pigs, however, it's highly unlikely that you will have them at the same time.
THE RIGHT HOME:
Ideally, we look for homes that will provide a calm environment for the animals. A spare room, to accomodate a cat or kitten, is essential.
