Opportunity to help pets in need

As a Blue Cross Foster Carer, you’ll play a pivotal role in providing the nurturing environment our pets need while they wait for their forever homes. From cats and dogs to rabbits, guinea pigs, and more, our Foster Carers provide care and affection to animals of various species. Some of our Foster Carers care for all species, while others specialise and, with additional training provided, can assist in caring for pets with specialist needs. The choice is yours. You'll have access to a designated Foster Coordinator who will provide support and guidance throughout your fostering journey. We'll ensure you receive all the training you need to equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to care for our pets effectively. Please note that living within a reasonable commuting distance of the nearest Rehoming Centre (M26 1NQ) is essential.

What you will be doing

  • Providing a safe and loving temporary home for Blue Cross pets until they find permanent homes
  • Offering support to pets who may be struggling in a Rehoming Centre environment
  • Transporting your foster pet to and from Blue Cross sites or vets as required
  • Providing necessary care, including feeding, socialising, grooming, and cleaning
  • Providing observations and feedback on your foster pet through assessments, diaries, and feedback form
