We are a foster based animal rescue, we feel it provides a more homely environment and reduces stress.
Maybe you could use some furry companionship, or your busy lifestyle means you cannot commit to adoption but can offer some time on a temporary basis, maybe you just want to help an animal in need, fostering animals can be extremely rewarding for animals and humans alike.
Most animals that are in need of a rescue space will require some form of veterinary treatment, need time to settle, recuperate and learn how to be a part of a family and this is where foster families come in...….
The role of a foster
The main role of a foster is to:
Be honest, trustworthy and willing to participate in home-check to ensure homes are suitable for the needs of the animal
Provide a warm and loving environment to an animal for the duration of their stay
Pay special attention to the health, welfare and needs of the animal/s placed in your care
Report any concerns to a member of the admin team and check in with updates regarding the animals progress regularly
Provide feedback on the animal in relation to behaviour, personality, likes and dislikes in order to find a home most suitable for them
Some fosters prefer to buy their own equipment as part of their fostering experience but we are happy to provide essentials such as:
Food bowls and accessories
Leads, beds, toys
Litter box & cat litter
Flea & worm treatment
*ALL VETERINARY BILLS ARE COVERED BY THE RESCUE*
The duration of a foster placement will vary depending on what veterinary treatment is required. There will always be a 2 weeks settling in period, we will then look into providing any vet treatment such as neutering, vaccinations & health checks. *All vet fees are covered by us*
Once all vet treatment is complete, we will advertise the animal/s for adoption via our website and social media pages. Foster carers get 1st refusal before the animal is advertised for adoption, the adoption fee is still applies.
Occasionally, foster placements do not work out, in these circumstances we will do our best to find an urgent re-foster for the animals, sometimes it is not possible to act immediately so we ask for patience in these cases but we will always do our best to find alternative accommodation ASAP.
We are happy to consider potential foster homes in most locations within 100 miles of Leicester.
