There can be no more rewarding an experience, than that of providing a cat/kitten a temporary home whilst a permanent, loving and forever home is found.
For Cheltenham Cat Rescue, our foster program is how we save, and change lives for the better. Foster carers play an integral role in the rehoming process and the duration of time in care can vary. Sometimes the need for a temporary home can be as short as one or two weeks….on other occasions it can exceed a couple of months.
As a foster carer, you will receive 24/7 guidance and support, from the wider CCR volunteer network. All vet expenses are covered by the rescue group. All we ask of you is that you provide your foster with their daily needs – food, shelter, litter, care and oodles of love and cuddles. Occasionally, you may also need to take them for any vet visits they may require. We can assist if needed with transport.
If this sounds like you and you consider yourself an animal lover all the way to the moon and back; if you are compassionate, reliable and trustworthy and can take cats in to your home on a temporary basis, then we’d love you to complete our foster care application form below.
Oh and don’t worry too much if you become attached to your foster! That’s perfectly fine with us and you’d be surprised how often it happens! Fostering is a great way to test whether companion animal guardianship is for you, and adopting your foster cat/kitten is certainly an option. We call that ‘Foster Fail’…..and it’s a great thing to fail at!
