Foster Carer FAQ's

The Sheffield Cats Shelter are currently looking to increase the number of volunteer foster carers.

How do Foster Carers make a difference?


They allow the Shelter to get more Mums and kittens off the streets and into a home environment.  Once old enough they return to the Shelter for adoption.  Each year the number of dumped pregnant females and kittens increases and fosterer carers allow them to experience a real home environment.

Could you be a Foster Carer?

You don't even need to be a cat owner.  Shelter Manager, Shirley stresses the level of responsibility that comes with the role but states that common sense and vigilance are the most important qualities.

For a cat family it's useful to have a spare room to ensure security, for kittens the Shelter can supply large cages.

You will need to ensure you are able to give meals regularly through the day and be able to quickly notice changes in health.  Transport will be needed in order to take your foster family to any Vet appointments.

The Shelter staff will be on hand to offer advice and support every step of the way.

What about costs?

The Shelter use Highfield Vets on London Road and all medical expenses are covered.  If you are able to provide food and litter, that really helps, but if you can't it's not a problem, you can collect supplies from the Shelter.

So what do you think?  Could you help vulnerable cats and kittens?

How do I get involved?

Call the Shelter for more information and to discuss fostering your own little family.
