Could you become a cat foster carer?

RSPCA Newport Adoption Centre is appealing for local animal-lovers to foster cats.

Harper 2Rehoming coordinator Sarah Sibley said: “Fostering an animal is incredibly rewarding and we are looking for new foster carers to help us with the many cats and kittens that come into our care. These cats include those that may have experienced neglect that have been rescued by the RSPCA inspectorate.

“Volunteer fosterers provide a vital resource to the RSPCA as they can offer these animals a calm and loving environment during their rehabilitation and help to improve their chances of finding a permanent loving new home.”

The fosterers who will provide temporary accommodation for cats/kittens will be responsible for their feeding, cleaning, grooming and interaction. There will be full training given and food will be provided along with any veterinary care.

“We would love to hear from anyone who is interested in joining our fostering volunteering team.” added Sarah. “You can give us a call on 0300 123 0595 or if you’d like to chat in person please drop by our centre at Pets at Home at Mendalgief Retail Park.”
