Could you foster a pet in need?
· Do you miss the company of a pet but can’t commit to adoption? For example, you might enjoy your holidays or can’t afford a pet of your own.
· Do you have time and patience to offer a pet? Fostering best suits people who are home most of the day, such as those who work from home or are retired.
· Raystede supplies all the animal's food, equipment, and cover any veterinary costs. We offer continued support throughout the foster period.
· Pets need fostering for a variety of reasons and we carefully match pets with the most suitable foster home although we find fostering works best in homes without pets or young children.
The length of fostering varies depending on the individual animals' needs but is usually for around 3 months or until the animal finds a new home.
Fostering is hugely rewarding and great fun.
Dog fostering: we are particularly keen to hear from you if you have experience with large dogs, bullbreeds, or experience helping dogs overcome behaviour problems through positive training.
Kitten fostering will require a calm, pet-free environment and plenty of time for socialisation. Applicants must have experience in raising kittens.
Rabbit fostering will require a rabbit-proof room indoors or a large converted shed/wendy- house with secure run attached. Applicants must be experienced with caring for rabbits.
