RSPCA wants help fostering animals

THE RSPCA does so much for the community and now they are calling on you.

The RSPCA is looking for foster carers for both cats and dogs.

If you are able to give these animals a loving home, full support will be provided including all food and veterinary treatments.

Michaela Fellowes has been a foster carer for the RSPCA for some time now looking after dogs, cats, kittens and puppies.

At the moment she has the joy of looking after 10 large cross-bred puppies – but this is only a rare situation.

Ms Fellowes has said that the foster carers would usually have to look after older animals and that the time spent looking after them was usually one to two months at a time.

“It is a perfect way for people who can’t commit to a long-term arrangement to become a foster carer,” Ms Fellowes said.

“You can look after just one animal at a time for a couple of months and then have a break.”

The puppies in Ms Fellowes care at the moment are five weeks old and will be ready to go on August 14 for people wishing to buy one.

If you would like to become a foster carer or are interested in learning more out about the program you can phone Judy Whicker on 0417065394 or head to www.adoptioncentregladstone.com to lodge the necessary forms.
