Cat or Kitten Foster Carer (Sibling Pairs)

Animal Welfare Regular - less than 6 months Thomastown VIC

About this opportunity

Foster caring the cats or kittens as pairs is a new initiative of Alley Katz Australia Org. requested by our rescuers who have identified sibling social bonding to be conducive to well-being.

This role requires a foster care agreement to be struck between the carer and Alley Katz Australia Org. (Katzbell) and the period of foster care will normally consist of a fixed period and a flexible period subject to agreement. The pairs are advertised as "available soon" or "available now" for adoption through the Pet Rescue Website.

The cat's veterinary expenses are covered by Alley Katz Australia Org., whilst the cost of daily feeding and accommodation, including litter is covered by the foster carer. An indicative cost for daily feeding and litter is about $3.50 to 4.50/day/cat.

Additional requirements

You will need to have a photo ID document to meet our screening requirements.

Time Required

This is an animal welfare commitment which requires at least 30 mins per day to play with the animals, groom, feed, and change litter. Accommodation arrangements may add a few minutes each week to maintain hygiene within the home.
