RSPCA Newport Animal Centre is seeking volunteers to support animal welfare by becoming foster carers.

The centre, based at Hartridge Farm Road, is looking for dog foster carers for some of the animals in their care who are not quite ready for rehoming.

The centre at any one time cares for more than 100 animals and in 2017 staff rehomed 91 dogs, 218 cats, 43 rabbits and 48 other small animals.

Centre manager Stuart Toulson said: “We would love to hear from you if you are interested in helping us by providing foster care for vulnerable dogs.

“Foster carers do hugely important voluntary work for the RSPCA, in what many say is a hugely rewarding experience which is vital for our animal welfare work.

“If you would like to become a fosterer for us, please get in touch. We’re really hoping to add some new volunteers to our local group of fosterers.”

All necessary equipment, food and veterinary care will be supplied through RSPCA Newport Animal Centre, although foster carers will need to transport the dog to vet appointments based in the Newport area.

If you would like more information please email newport@rspca.org.uk or you can also call the centre on 0300 123 0744.
