Foster Carer for Dogs and Cats

Animal Welfare Regular - more than 6 months Esperance WA

About this opportunity

Foster Carers a dog or cat in their own home to care for until such time as the animal can be placed in its forever home. Carers are asked to give lots of TLC and to handle the animal in order to prepare them for their new home.

This is a very rewarding position as you see the animal become friendlier and less stressed. Animals may stay with you for a short or longer time depending on the number of forever homes sought from the general public. SAFE can provide most of the food and bedding requirements for the fostered pet, as well as cover any veterinary needs.
