Foster with us...

Do you have a spare room, or space on the couch, that a cat could crash in while they get back on their paws? 

Being a foster carer is such a rewarding experiences. Each animal you bring into your home has their own unique personality. We always get asked ‘isn’t it hard to let them go?’. Yes and no. Every animal you have in care will take a little piece of your heart. Whether it’s a timid cat who you help come out of its shell, or a tiny kitten you watch grow - helping them get big and strong. It really is one of the best feelings in the world to be able to help them, then find their special forever home.

 There’s always a few tears when they leave but then you receive updates and messages of thanks from their new family and that short feeling of sadness is replaced with love and pride. The more you foster, the more lives you save. Don’t worry though, if you do fall head over heels in love you can always adopt them yourself. This is called ‘foster failing’ but we think it’s more like foster winning!

 Tom and Queenie can provide you with a great foster care pack that outlines all the things you need to know, and we are there to support you every step of the way. We talk to you extensively to match you with the perfect foster. We literally can’t do what we do without the support of foster carers. Daily, cats and kittens are handed into vets, shelters, emergency centres or caught by Municipal Rangers. There are so many there is simply no room left in any of the shelters around our city and sadly many don’t make it out.

Our foster carers are life savers.

We hope you will join us.
