WHAT DOES FOSTERING INVOLVE?
WE URGENTLY NEED RELIABLE FOSTERERS.
Have you ever thought about fostering a cat (or cats) until a new home can be found for them?
Perhaps not as many as this but could you perhaps foster just one or two cats?!
People can shy away from fostering because they are unsure what the role of a fosterer entails. We hope the following information will clarify what is involved in becoming a fosterer for Leeds Feline Friends.
We are always looking for new, reliable fosterers.
Fostering means looking after a cat/cats until a new home can be found. It can sometimes take many months to find a good home for a cat.
If you are interested in fostering then you need a spare room that the cat/s can be kept in. This is especially important if you have pets of your own. The room needs to be of a reasonable size and not used for anything else on a regular basis. Foster cats are not allowed to go outside.
It can be helpful if you have the use of a car, though it is not essential.
If you go away for a weekend or on holiday we will not have anywhere to move the cat to so someone needs to be found to come into your home to see to the cat.
All the eqiupment you need will be provided by us, including cat food and litter. Any vet bills will be paid for by us. Full support is given, with advice on how to look after the cat, give medication etc.
Anyone who contacts us wanting to adopt a cat has a home visit first of all. When the visit is successful most people want to see the cat they are hoping to adopt so would need to come to your home. If, after the viewing, they decide they want to go ahead with the adoption, once they have got everything in place, we deliver the cats to their new homes.
If you think you might be interested in helping us by fostering please CONTACT US to discuss the possibility.
Fostering can be a truly rewarding experience.
Why not give it a go?
