Become a Foster Carer

Becoming a RSPCA ACT Foster Carer:

We will happily work with you with your available time and commitment.

RSPCA ACT will supply you with:

  • Food
  • Litter (for cats)
  • Bedding
  • Medication
  • Free access, visits, and treatment to our veterinarians
  • Enrichment
  • All the help we can offer you to make your foster caring journey smooth.
  • Behavioural advice

As you can see, we give you everything you need to make the animals comfortable, we just need you to give them a loving home.

How Foster Carers help animals:

Before animals can be adopted from RSPCA ACT they need to be desexed, microchipped, wormed and vaccinated. While they wait to be medically cleared for adoption, living with a foster carer in a loving home can be a much better alternative to staying at the shelter. Sometimes the shelter environment can be stressful for animals.

Young animals need to wait until they are a certain age to be desexed, rather than spending several weeks at the shelter, wouldn’t it be much more enjoyable to spend time with you in a loving home.

RSPCA ACT rely on our Foster Carer network, without them, we would not have the space to accept all the animals who need our help. The more Foster Carers we have, the more animals we can help.

Can you provide a foster home for some of our animals? Find out more below:
