Short Term Fostering

Our fosterers do an amazing job. When animals come into rescue it can be a very stressful time and fosterers play a crucial role in helping them adapt to their new situation. It’s also vital we have fosterers on hand to look after animals while they complete their course of vaccinations or other medial treatment, as we cannot allow unvaccinated animals into our rescue centre at Ferry Farm, as this would potentially put the health of our other animals at risk.

Some animals can be in our rescue centre for long periods so short terms foster care can offer a break from kennels, and the chance to experience the home comforts of a loving family. This is particularly beneficial to older or nervous pets, or those who’ve had little social interaction in their lives.

Long Term Fostering 

Some animals (older ones and those in kennels for a long time) are available on a long term foster basis. You do not have to pay an adoption fee and the charity will pay for reasonable veterinary fees and take them to our vets when necessary.
