Foster care

Become a foster carer

Foster carers provide a temporary, loving home for pets who are recovering from surgery, undergoing behaviour training, too young for adoption, or need some extra TLC outside of the busy shelter environment.

Becoming a foster carer is an incredibly rewarding experience for all involved. Not only does it provide shelter pets with a temporary home to grow, rehabilitate and recover – it also gives you a sense of fulfillment knowing you have played a special part in preparing these dogs and cats for adoption and a forever home.

Pets of all breeds and ages require foster care. For more information about how our Foster Care Program works, please read our Foster Care FAQ.

Apply to become a foster carer

In recent weeks we’ve received an overwhelming response from members of the community wishing to foster pets in need, which truly warms our hearts. We are not taking new foster applications at this time, however look forward to re-opening applications in the near future. We will advertise on this page when applications are open, so please keep an eye out.
