Cat Foster Application Form

Helping Hands Animal Rescue has a constant need for foster carers to house cats and kittens (including mother cats with their kittens) until we find their 'forever' home.

Foster caring is a rewarding experience for both you and the animal(s) placed in your care. As a small foster network, we rely on carers in order for us to be able to save animals from death row pounds.

The more foster carers we have, the more lives we can save.

We place animals with you that suit your experience and lifestyle, to minimise the impact on your life. Volunteer foster carers are a vital and key step in the animals we rescue finding a loving ‘forever’ home. Foster carers are not required to pay for any veterinary costs (incl worming/flea treatment).
