Could you give a temporary foster home to a kitten/cat/puppy/dog?
Have you thought about getting a companion for your current pet but feel your present lifestyle just doesn’t suit a long term commitment? Or maybe you’re not sure how you and a pet would get on? Or do you already have a pet but feel that one more in your home on a temporary basis would not be a problem? Then perhaps you would think of becoming a Fosterer.
Kingdom Cat and Dog Rescue only have a few kennel spaces, so most of the cats and dogs we rescue are taken into the homes of our foster volunteers until a permanent home can be found. We are very desperate for more foster homes because the more places we have available, the more animals we can take in and help. Because of the shortage of foster homes we often have to resort to boarding rescued cats and dogs in kennels in vets’ surgeries, the cost of which really adds up.
- A loving foster home works wonders for cats and kittens who have experienced abandonment and hard times and it prepares them for their new home.
- All animals are health checked and we take responsibility for all medical expenses.
- Advice and backup is always on hand.
Fostering means keeping the animal in your home and treating it as your pet. Bringing the animal in for any appointments necessary. Fosters don’t have to try finding homes for cats/kittens/dogs/puppies but if they feel they can that would be a very welcome bonus.
